Phase 6: Conducting Students Direct Camera Operator/Switcher
Recording at Ball State University of a performance of Die Fledermaus, recorded by a student that was not familiar with the production.

Conducting student on the left working from a score he had previously prepared to direct the music production student on the right on which camera angles to get and when to switch from one to another.
