Every year the and the technology for the Super Bowl is both bigger and better. This year, production was broadcast in 1080p and converted to 4K UHD HDR, and even some cameras, including Canon and Sony, shooting in 8K.

I’ve been recording, editing, conference-calling and participating in live-directed sessions from my professional home studio for eight years now, voicing commercials for national brands such as Pillsbury, Panera, Hoover and Dannon. But things HAVE changed - in ways I wasn’t expecting.

As I mentioned in our first Pivot Point, smart production companies are moving incredibly fast to shift from the “traditional” production model. This shift has forced companies to evaluate and change plans on the fly. One such company is Events United located in Manchester, New Hampshire. We caught up with the crew while they were catching their breath and getting ready for their next production.
Never go inside the theater. Well, at least not before the house opens.
