OB – World Pipe Band Championship [BBC1 Scotland] – Steadicam

without comments

This year was the 6th year I’ve operated Steadicam for BBC Scotland at the World Pipe Band Championships, alongside John Richards. Winners this year were Field Marshall Montgomery, on a day which had both bright sun and heavy downpours of rain – together with a strong blustery wind. Together, it all added up for a hard day of Steadicam, but a very enjoyable one as ever.


Our Steadicam coverage includes tracking, 360 degree rotations, and a lot of track backs. The end of the day sees the winning band march out of Glasgow Green playing – and this means just over 10 minutes of continual walking backwards, with a heavy RF camera (Sony HDC-1500 with VideoSys metalwork, and Gigawave RF video & telemetry units)…it’s something which always brings memories of another annual job I cover, the British Military Tournament at Earls Court each December. We’ll be back there later this year!
