I have added the actual feature that aired on TNT just in case you missed it to my blog: tomguilmette.com/wp/my-blog/archives/950 (Footage courtesy of TNT Sports)
I was hired as a lighting director and a director of photography by Turner to set up and shoot a sit-down interview with John Thompson Jr. and Paul Pierce.
Dave and I picked up two Sony F900 HDCAMs, one Panasonic 900 DVCPRO HD, an Arri light kit, HD monitors, tripods, and tape stock from Rule Broadcast. I also brought some of my own gear.
We drove to Healthpoint athletic complex (practice and training facility for the Boston Celtics) and met up with another camera guy, Chris and the sound guy, Bill.
I set up my Sony EX1 with the Letus Extreme in the back of the "Hall of Fame" room at Healthpoint to capture a time lapse of our entire day. 9:30am to 3pm.
This sit-down interview is scheduled to air on October 28th during the one hour pre-game show before the Cavs/Celtics game at 7pm EST.
TRT: 5 minutes 48 seconds
Format: Quicktime H264 720p HD
