What do Multi-Camera Directors do?Multi-camera productions are most often sitcoms and soap operas, as well as talk shows, sporting events and newscasts. Multi-camera means multiple cameras. Most multi-camera productions use three cameras that run simultaneously to catch various reactions in the same scene rather than having to run a scene over and over as is typical with most single camera shoots. Additionally, they are invaluable during live events because one camera can be focused on one individual or moment while the other cameras catch the reactions of other participants in that same scene or activity.
Multi-camera productions are shot on both video and film, depending on the parameters of the production itself as well as the budget. The Director of a multi-camera show will either direct the action from the stage floor or from a booth.
