Mr./Ms. Editor, meet Mr. Pressure! Multicam guru Mitch Jacobson shows how the technical and creative skills that you've developed in the edit suite translate to live production even better than you think -- if your heart can handle the strain.

Sure, we all feel pressure as editors, but it is nothing like the racing towards a live event! With the live shows, you don't have a second chance. It is live, and you must make every decision in a split second -- and it has to be perfect. You must juggle everything all at once and execute with style, precision, flair and confidence. Mitch has learned the hard way, by live-producing multicamera shoots for clients as diverse as U2, Paul McCartney, the NFL and America's Got Talent, that sometimes the biggest problems can be solved with the smallest tricks.

This is just the first part of Mitch's deep dive into the intricacies of getting live multicam production right, every single time -- part of his quest to rid the world of bad multicam forever.
