OB – Scottish Cup Final [BBC1 Scotland] – Steadicam

without comments

Celtic v. Kilmarnock Scottish Cup Final

In March, Jason Torbitt operated Steadicam, with assistant / Focus Puller Jonathan Galione, for the BBC’s coverage of the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park, live on BBC 1 Scotland.


The match between Celtic and Kilmarnock, produced a surprise result for many, with Kilmarnock winning the game 1-0 thanks to a goal in the 82nd minute from Van Tournhout, which avoided the need for possible extra time and penalties.


We were one of two Steadicams for the match (the other being John Richards with Max McNally Focus Pulling) and our coverage included teams out, managers handshake, touchline coverage during the match. After the match, whilst the other Steadicam was used for post-match interviews, our Steadicam coverage on the pitch continued with celebrations, trophy presentation and the iconic trophy lift.


The match was broadcast live on BBC1 Scotland, and as a part of ‘Sportscene’, with our work also broadcast in news reports and on other sports channels, both in the UK and internationally, as the BBC was also operating as host broadcaster, with a clean feed TX being provided to other broadcasters.


You can watch two highlights videos from the BBC at the following link:-

(the first video being a match highlights, and the second video further down the page being a highlights of the post-match celebrations, and our coverage of the trophy lift)
