Angi Bruss, Tanner Herriott and I taped an interview with Ford Center GM Gary Desjardins today. Then we went up to the rafters and taped a couple of intros on the catwalks. All of this is for an upcoming video that features a time lapse of how the Ford Center swaps floors, from dirt to ice to the basketball floor.
So we shot a typical “hey we’re high atop the Ford Center on the catwalk” standup. Then we tortured poor Rob Agnew from the Ford Center into braving the heights for a little longer to shoot a second standup, playing off the NewsOK billboard at the ends of the Ford Center.
Those catwalks are quite stable really.
But way up there.
Tanner Herriott shot four days on the catwalks, often in the middle of the night, thousands of photos at a time. Then he is adding a cool Photoshop effect. Should be some decent stuff. See below, they look like toy trucks.
