2.  FCTV Needs Your Help

FCTV is seeking staff to help with our production at Further Confusion
2008! If you have any experience in any of the following areas, please
send a short blurb about your skills to We are
looking for the following:

- Camera Operators
- Video Switcher Operator (aka, Technical Director)
- Technical Assistant

We're mostly looking for camera operators. This will mostly entail you
operating a camera on a tripod. You must be able to follow directions from
the director on a headset and know how to smoothly pan, tilt and zoom a
camera when you're on "Live". We will need you during most of the main
events happening at main stage. Provided we have enough volunteers for
camera, you won't need to be on a camera at all events (unless you want to

We also need camera operators to do handheld video for events such as
Critter Olympics and other panels as needed. This means you should have a
steady hand if you're doing something where a tripod is not applicable,
and be able to keep a reasonable shot at other times if you are on a

For Video Switcher, we need someone who can operate a video switcher
(Training can be provided, but prior experience is a big bonus) and follow
directions from the director. This basically means you listen to the
director to tell you which camera to switch to, and switch to that camera
when told. In some circumstances, when the director is not available, the
video switcher will need to make their own decisions about which camera to
go to.

Technical assistant will help FCTV Lead and/or Second with technical
related tasks. This may include running cables, hooking up equipment and
running tapes and batteries around to camera operators during a live

If any of these things sound interesting to you, and you can spare some
time (Even if for just 1 event), please email
