You Tube highlight version - We Day is the public celebration for a Canadian non-profit organization called Free The Children, that promotes kids reaching out and up to make a global change for the better global world. After many live events across Canada in every major city in that country, Free The Children came to the USA (Seattle) for the 1st time in March, 2013. I had the pleasure of directing this show for IMAG, 3 stream global webcast and 16 record streams with 2 EVS systems. 7 Cameras, 1 30' jib, 2 stages, 18,000 kids in attendance , 2 Live Skype feeds and guests that included; Macklemore, The Hedleys, Martin Sheen, Martin Luther King III, Nellie Furtado, MC Hammer, Kid President, Magic Johnson many more in a live show that ran 5 hours.
Artists that spoke or performed throughout the day were; Nellie Furtado, Maclemore, Martin Sheen,
MC Hammer, Jennifer Hudson, The Tenors, Magic Johnson, Hedley, Martin Luther King III, Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer and many more.
I was able to help the organization also by connecting them with MIRA Mobile Television for facilities, crewing 7 camera operators, utility ops, EVS Operator, A1 and TD. For set day, I helped set cameras, shaded cameras, switched my own rehearsal and acted as my own AD (for both rehearsal and show day)
Now that's what you get with a Director that has 35 years in the TV industry!
