Henry Young Broadcast Camera Operator

OB CAMERA OPERATOR / GUARANTEE / ASSISTANT - LIVE & PRE-RECORD

I work on a wide variety of live and pre-recorded multicamera OBs, on projects varying from Formula 1 car launches in the pits at Silverstone, to 1000 children premiering a new opera at the Royal Albert Hall.

Whilst I am experienced at rigging and operating conventional broadcast cameras, including box-lenses, I am able to rig and operate a variety of different equipment. I have significant experience working on "cinematic" OB setups using cinema cameras such as the Sony PMW-FS7, PXW-F55 and Arri Amira, often with Fujinon and Canon cinema lenses; I know what is required in order to get the most out of these cameras, and can help prepare kit lists. With an engineering and trouble-shooting mindset, I can also act as a camera guarantee on OBs.

I have good lighting and engineering experience, allowing me to assist other departments and crew as required on smaller productions. I have worked on many corporate OBs where I have been required to not only rig and operate cameras, but also light and dress a set.
