The SVG Podcast: NASCAR Clash at the Coliseum with FOX Sports Director Artie Kempner

What was it like calling the shots at the unique, historic event

Last Sunday’s Clash at the Coliseum was both a critical and ratings success for NASCAR and FOX Sports. The unique spectacle that placed an auto racing track onto the grounds of the Los Angeles Coliseum was a feast for the eyes on broadcast television.

To reflect on the experience of what it was like to call the shots from the front bench, FOX Sports lead director Artie Kempner joins us on The SVG Podcast. Artie discusses the use of aerial cameras like SkyCam and drones, what opportunities and challenges were brought about by hosting a race in such a small venue, what it was like directing an Ice Cube concert, and what he learned from this unique live production experience.
