The Orlando Regional Planning Committee is pleased to announce The RoboShow: Orlando, a day by day regional review show produced by a talented crew of FIRST alumni.
There will be daily wrap-up shows on Thursday and Friday at 7:00 pm filled with interviews, match analysis, statistics, highlights and more.
On Saturday, March 9th we will go live at 12:45 pm, after alliance selections, with a recap of the last two days and match by match coverage of the eliminations. In addition to the match analysis you will also hear about the sights and sounds of the Orlando Regional, the history of the event, the people who make it run, and the teams that make it one of the best FIRST Regionals running.
We will have 9 cameras on the field covering all the angles (including driver stations) and roving reporters talking to teams about everything happening at the 15th Annual Orlando Regional.
We’ve got a lot planned for the show. It won’t simply be coverage of the matches. We are going to be doing packages about all aspects of the event, interviews with teams, coverage of award winners, etc. We are looking to bring high production value coverage of the event to the masses. We are very lucky to have gotten together a great group of people with lots of production experience, who are also alumni of FRC and can bring that unique perspective that only someone who has been a part of this incredible organization can.
Michigan hasa been doing this for a few years now. I’ve seen a couple of them on Youtube with sideline reporters and Paul Copioli as color analyst the first year and I think Dave Verbrugge last year. Working MSC the production was a lot less invasive than the crew who worked the FIRST championship in 2011 and the documentary crew who just seemed to be in the way in Florida in 2009 at every turn in 2009.
Wow. Are those 3 all Bacon Alumni? And I also think I speak for all of FIRST in that we should totally get Kelly to push EA to sponsor FIRST by creating each FIRST game every year just like they do with NCAAF and Madden.
I am an Alumnus of 168 and mentored a couple of teams after I graduated. Andrew is an Alumnus of 212 and has been involved as a mentor on many teams at all levels. We also have at least 10 people, all who are either Alumni of a FRC team or who have been involved with a team in some way. Between that FRC experience, and our combined professional production experience, we’re hoping to put together a great show.
There will be a desk where the anchors will host match highlights, analysis, pre-recorded stories and they will pitch out to the matches when we’re live on Saturday.
The stories from around the regional will be shot with a few different sets of roaming cameras and microphones.
