WATCH: An Exclusive View of Data Wrangling at World Surf League
Data wrangling or media management plays a vital role in producing TV shows, films, and especially sports broadcasts, as it is not a scripted event that can be redone if the footage was lost or not shot in the first place.
It is crucial in surfing events as every performance highlight is unique. Retaking it would be difficult as surfers rely on unpredictable waves to perform their moves. So it is important to make sure that the files are there and safe.
A surfing competition that recognises the best surfers in the world, World Surf League (WSL) have seven cameras on the beach filming every surfer’s performance, consuming large volumes of terabytes. WSL Data Wrangler Henry Bayer is in charge of managing and organising it all.
Watch as he delves into data wrangling and its importance at the event. Plus, a takeover in the backend of the WSL shoot, from behind the scenes to data management with SanDisk Professional Mentor, Filmmaker, and WSL Editor Jay Hall.
Jay is an internationally acclaimed filmmaker with 15 years of experience. He has participated in the post-production of award-winning series, films, and documentaries.
