Swinging Success: The Solheim Cup Team Announcement
It was a day that showcased the prowess of Blind Squirrel Productions as we were enlisted to produce the livestream announcing the Solheim Cup team in Vancouver. Determined to provide a top-notch production while mindful of cost considerations, we devised a strategy that seamlessly blended local talent with our remote team.
In the vibrant city of Vancouver, our ground team set the stage for excellence, bringing in cutting edge digital cinema cameras and enlisting the help of skilled local crew members. Cameras, lighting, audio, and set decoration were meticulously arranged to create a captivating atmosphere for the Solheim Cup team announcement.
We made a strategic decision to merge a local crew with a portion of our team working remotely. Only our director of photography and engineer traveled to Vancouver, showcasing our commitment to delivering exceptional results while being mindful of the client’s budget. Our director called the shots from his home studio in California, and our Technical Director (TD) orchestrated the show’s cuts from New Jersey.
As the livestream unfolded, the Solheim Cup team announcement captivated audiences worldwide. The host and captain conducted engaging interviews with some of the biggest stars in women’s golf, all within the carefully crafted set we had built for the occasion.
Post-announcement, the action continued as we facilitated a digital press junket for numerous news outlets, including the prestigious Golf Channel. Our cloud production facility became the central hub where camera signals and audio were expertly crafted into a broadcast-quality video production, and distributed the finished product to all the news organizations and broadcasters.
Blind Squirrel Productions had not only successfully navigated the challenges of a dispersed team but also orchestrated a seamless and cost-effective production that elevated the Solheim Cup team announcement to new heights. The day was a testament to our innovation, adaptability, and commitment to delivering excellence in every frame.
