My role:

The aims:

To provide the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship with 10 x 60 second VT’s per event, to be used in social media and in the live broadcast, broadcast on Channel 4, BT Sport, and ESPN.

  • Correctly format and export the materials for output, and ensure audio is legalised using PPM’s
