Maxwell Football Club
Maxwell Awards Show
2015. Now in its 78th year, 2,000 people attended the MFC Awards show at the Tropicana Casino Resort in Atlantic City, NJ on March 13th. This year the top college award went to Marcus Mariota, quarterback for the Oregon Ducks.
Phoenix Media Group was responsible for the production side of the show. That meant an entire day of setup inside the Tropicana’s Theater with miles of cable runs, three projection screen feeds for video package playback to the in-house audience and hundreds of connections. All of this connectivity was thought out in advance by the PMG crew through creation of engineering drawings to get it right on paper first.
The 5 camera shoot which consisted of 2 scaffold operated cameras, a Jib camera, a Steadicam and a shoulder cam. Two TriCasters were used, one to provide all in-house video and music clips featured during the 2 hours ceremony in the theater. The second TriCaster was used to capture the show live-to-tape for airing in 42 major markets through Tribune Media.
