They’re now streaming the game over the internet. Which adds a little extra to my camera work because I live by the Tally Light, which indicates when my camera is “live” to program. When that light goes off, I’m quickly readjusting my camera and moving to my next shot.
But with them streaming to the internet, there is no tally light to signify that I’m “live” to the web, unless the director tells me so. Which he may not do. Even though my tally light has gone out, indicating that my camera is no longer “live” to program, I maybe still “live” on the web.
