Camera work

Hi Scott,

When did WWE forget how to film wrestling matches? I'm sure you know what I'm referring to: for quite a while now, whenever someone is about to hit a big move (even certain finishers) the camera angle changes right at the point of contact so that you don't really see the move happen. This happens way too much to be an accident. Do the directors in the booth (or Vince) really think this is appealing? Hope you can shed some light on the subject. Sorry about the lack of Daniel Bryan in this email.

Yeah, I've noticed the ADD camerawork in the HD era as well, and I think it has to do with a change in the directing staff.  It'll probably get worse when Hunter takes over and turfs out Kevin Dunn as well.  I think the real problem is just like with the lack of indies, in that they're running out of experienced cameramen and directors who know how to shoot WRESTLING and not just whatever WWE tells them to.
