No matter what your experience as a sports fan is, there’s no denying that the thrill of live coverage is unparalleled. The mix of excitement, drama, and sheer epicness of sports can make you feel alive like nothing else ever does.
But how does it all happen? How do people provide commentary for the events and bring them to life? Follow me on the journey from camera to the TV set when professional 무료스포츠중계 goes down.
It all begins with the professionals. Commentators like Jim Rome, Joe Buck, and Jay Leno started young and worked to the top. There’s always sports writing for those who don’t make it to the top. Others have become famous simply for being famous, with no experience outside their own (i.e., Jessica Simpson).
These professionals are chosen for various reasons that differ from sport to sport. Golf? It would be best if you had your commentary team be as dry as a desert. Rooting for your favorite team is hard enough without breaking into a sweat. Football? Joe Buck brings sunshine to the rainiest day, Bill Raftery’s pearls of wisdom bring the world peace. Hockey? Who can you trust if you can’t trust someone who looks like a supermodel?
Once chosen for their expertise, commentating “pros” begin training. Training inanely long hours to get as good as possible at their job and maintaining that skill when not on air. It’s all part of the effort to be professional and professional.
So training looks like this:
Commentators are told to know everything about the game, but more importantly, they must be skilled at improvising when that big moment happens. That is the main criticism of most commentators…that once the play is over, there’s nothing left to say. To combat this, many commentators have developed an “ad-lib” skill; one that keeps their conversation going from basket to basket and from strike to strike. It’s no easy task, but it’s necessary for successful sports broadcasting.
We now fast forward to the action broadcast. Here’s where the real work begins. The result of finding exciting perspectives, combining them with new information, and presenting them to viewers. This means that every comment is highly scripted and rehearsed in advance. It’s not just the lines but also how the commentary is delivered and choreographed. Once again, it isn’t easy, but when you consider all of those carefully scripted words still have to sound natural and natural-ish, it seems like a difficult task.
The commentators here are given a short list of everything they need to say on screen.
