15 Jun Go To Team at Wrestlemania 33 – Part 3
Continued from Part 2…
Read up on our Waco, Texas cameraman‘s experience at Wrestlemania 33:
I couldn’t wait to get down to Orlando for Wrestlemania 33. This was my second time at WWE’s biggest event of the year. I spent the week leading up to the event working on season two of “The Edge and Christian Show.” We had a pretty large room to work in, but the room was weirdly shaped which made setting up a 20×20 green screen a bit challenging. We used a local grip truck to light the green screen. Having a grip truck made the process a lot simpler. I used a couple Kinos and fresnels on the green screen set up.
We spent the week shooting skits in front of the green screen. A number of WWE Superstars participated in Edge and Christian’s skits including, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, and Sgt. Slaughter. We shot on two Sony F5’s with the Canon 17-120mm. I mounted my Odyssey 7Qplus to the Sony F5 for a backup and producer monitor. We were so busy that the week flew by. I didn’t have an assignment on Sunday so I was able to watch the event from backstage. It was pretty cool. Can’t wait till next year’s Wrestlemania.
