Broadway’s Network Used Blackmagic Design

PostTue Jul 09, 2019 4:25 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that the hit Tony winning Broadway play “Network” used its products to help create an immersive experience for audience members, putting them right in the middle of a live news broadcast. Video Designer and Cinematographer Tal Yarden used Micro Studio Camera 4Ks, Studio Camera 4Ks, Video Assist 4K monitor/recorders, ATEM 2 M/E Production Studio 4K and ATEM 1 M/E Advanced Panel on and off stage to film and live switch the performance, helping to create a unique multimedia spectacle for the audience.

Directed by Tony Award and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove, “Network" was adapted by Lee Hall from Paddy Chayefsky’s Academy Award winning film which follows anchorman Howard Beale’s (Bryan Cranston) live on screen breakdown. Set inside a television studio, the cast and crew made use of video equipment on and off stage to power the newsroom and feed content to the onstage screens. This included the Micro Studio Camera 4Ks, which were in handheld rigs complete with Video Assist 4Ks and wireless transmitters, and Studio Camera 4Ks, which were mounted on tripods complete with teleprompters for filming Cranston during news desk scenes.

Yarden explained, “The Micro Studio Camera 4Ks were in constant use and were the main cameras for the show. We did many long fluid steadicam shots navigating around the set and catching moments of action in a complex choreography. Most importantly, Bryan Cranston’s climactic ‘I’m Mad as Hell’ monologue was captured as he moved around the stage and interacted with other characters.”
