(YouTube) Video In 1982, NBC was broadcasting Brewers vs Red Sox at old Fenway Park when the power went out in the middle of the ninth. As someone in the NBC truck yelled "I got nothing," legendary director Harry Coyle called on Mario   (youtube.com) divider line 35

Did I fall asleep and now there's a new Fenway Park?

These sort of things don't happen at new Fenway Park.  I just wish Manny could have lived to see it.

"Beautiful..."

FOX could learn a thing or twelve from watching Coyle work.

There's a "new" Fenway Park?

One fail to subby and modmin

in subby's defence, I think he's referring to Fenway Park as old, rather than saying there was a Fenway Park which has been replaced

THIS FOOTAGE IS AWESOME.

In fairness, just like when King Koopa fell into the lava, the REAL hero here is Mario.

Whereas in hockey, they still can't get a camera over to a fight in time.

Mario, the greatest closer of all time
Go Yankees
Kick me if I'm wrong

WWE never gets a shot of the puck drop either.

It's fair to call it old Fenway Park.

All the networks could. Great find, subby, that was good stuff.

 As a former director I doff my cap at this man's expertise.

/don't like all the chatter in the truck though
 
2013-09-22 11:57:44 AM  
This is absolutely awesome.
 
2013-09-22 11:59:20 AM  
I guess if there's a new Mexico, there can be a new Fenway park.

Rollie's stash knew he would pull it off the whole time.

I would have been the guy at the console getting told to shut up and calm down.

/one of the many reasons I'm not in TV anymore
 
2013-09-22 12:52:38 PM  
That was amazing!
Tense game to have that happen in, too.

This. Watching it made me wonder whether the production staff would be more tired after an extra innings game than the players.

A good director with a seasoned crew, can make the live switch look like it was all done by telepathy.  We had a big multi-cam live shot going when some a-hole killed the entire intercom system. In the fifteen minutes it took to bring it back up, we didn't miss a single shot, because we all knew what kind of shots I was going to ask for and the timing was self-evident.

  Back in my internship days, I was in the "Mario" cameraman position while we covered a local little league game.  The intercom was out for the last 4 innings, and I just kept my shots steady, I would do subtle moves to telegraph when I was about to do a big fast zoom, and I shot the things I would expect to see, if I was watching this at home.  The director comes out to me after the game and congratulates me: "You didn't hear a thing on the coms for the last 4 innings, but  I was calling your shots as if you could hear me, and damn, if it didn't work out like you were reading my mind!" Well, in a sense it *is* mind-reading, that is, predicting what the director expects. A baseball game has certain rules and patterns in the action and so this narrows down your choices of shot so the odds are good you'll only get what the director is going to want, anyway.

If a camera op just sits and waits to be told every shot, they are not doing their job.

Nice to see what happens behind the scenes.  that was interesting

As someone who used to operate a camera at a horse racing track and who works in the film industry these days, it's moments like this where you realize you want the most grizzled veteran you can find in the big chair.

Well done.

Well, it didn't hurt that the pitcher walked into the dugout exactly on cue by complete luck.

Those guys sounded like a bunch of kids with their dad.

This is awesome.  Live TV, baby.

Worked with an obnoxious doichebag of a video director for years in minor league baseball. He could learn a thing or 2 from Harry Coyle.
 
2013-09-22 09:19:32 PM  
this is 100% the cam op Mario. That cat knows how to get a shot.

No kidding.  I can't imagine how people don't get confused with all the talking going on.
