I'm 100% out of my depth in regards to eSports coverage but here are some things/questions I have:
- What was the i55 set up? Cause I thought that coverage was great (so many headshots, airshots, spy plays, med picks etc all caught on the stream) and could that system be used again?
- I liked the split screen for rollouts but agree that it had sort of confusing impact in other situations
- I liked the mini camera in the bottom left to keep an eye on off-classes while the 'main' action was being watched BUT for example when a sniper was being watched on the minicam it was very difficult to see what was being aimed at since the sniper POV is so zoomed out. In these situations I think it would have been better for the minicam and maincam to be switched, otherwise it was difficult to see anything from the sniper POV and it was therefore almost redundant
- All of the rest of the production was great! I loved the pick/ban screens and the transitions were always on point as far as I saw and Nuze's analytics were a pleasure to watch
- Lastly I remember at Rewind there was at least one (maybe two) cameras with a live feed of the venue so that you could see the crowd in relation to the players on the stage and see the whole set up of the place. Really made it feel a lot more like you were there rather than just seein the crowd. For example I didn't even see the stage until I saw it in the i61 pictures thread. Maybe I just missed it though bc I didn't manage to catch 100% of the stream.
Hopefully this is helpful or at least nice to hear. Its also all just my personal opinion and I'm aware there is so much work involved with production and I have the utmost respect for everyone involved and thank you for your effort. Also if anything I said is out of your hands due to different productions companies(?) e.g. the tf.tv style vs the essentials.tf style then that's fair enough, I just wanted to suggest anything I could based on any past LANs I've watched. Lastly, sorry for rambling and cu@Rewind2018 :D
