Telemondo reporter and crew filming in front of Maracanã Stadium 2 days before the Olympics Opening Ceremony. Stepping on a camera box plus a few spotlights, here is the behind the scenes trick for getting the video right.
The Olympics in Rio attracted reporters and presenters together with their film crews from all over the world. Almost like a Babel Tower, it feels like the city is more international than ever.
Huge camera lenses and tripods can be seen in all areas near the Olympic arenas. The extra policing seems to be providing the security (and the confidence for film crews to be walking around with these expensive equipment) that Rio used to lack during the preceding months.
Rio is on the spotlight! Whatever happens here, good or bad, gets broadcasted around the globe almost instantly.
Most TV crews and photographers are behind the stories directly related to the Olympics, the best angle for the competitions and landmarks. The fact is: Rio goes much beyond the Summer Olympic Games, there are no credentials needed to see and feel the real Rio de Janeiro underneath the thin layer of this Olympic fever.
