yes I believe there is a skill to doing so I watched DSI freedom to Dance and it was not nice to watch. I don't know how they filmed it but was very amateurish and all the way through they kept trying to sell their product. I would hope other events have more cameras and angles.
Absolutely agree with the quality (or lack thereof) of the filming for Freedom To Dance. I've seen very good and very bad and everywhere in between. I am hoping they will do better going forward.
When I filmed certain couples I used to pretty much ,emorize their routines so I could anticipate where they were going on the floor. For shows I used to watch rehearsals to get a feel of what would happen so there were no big suprises...
Not many others bother. Some couples would ask me to get a close up of a piece of footwork or a picture piece... I'd do it as they wished. I guess they were happy with what I did. And, I was especially good for formation teams. It was hard work and long hours but a lot of fun too.
