Yeah, it all comes back to amplification, part of the issue is the way show design is now days mm's are either marching or playing there is not nearly enough credit given for doing both, so the brass plays, and then stops playing and starts running and the pit takes over (flight of the bumblebee section of BD's show last year is a great example of what this is like)

oh i hear ya. i'm all for the pit, but people have had enough of the lies

Have they had enough? They cheered for Cavies and SCV to move up in the standings while both brass lines were taking it easy. The fans and the judges both aren't discerning enough in this category.

I'd have to say, more restraint on electronic Bass. That fake bottom level really destroys the experience for me.

I could not agree more.  The measure of a corps should NOT be how many sub-woofers they can afford to string in front of the pit.  

I took special notice of this last year and it wasn't even close.  I'll give your three guesses which corps win in this regard.  Not saying I didn't also love their shows - but it is just getting out of control.

Maybe DCI would experiment at one of the outdoor/indoor stadiums that have the attachment hardware set up, they would use the overhead camera that's attached to cables.  Much quieter than a drone and able to get much closer to "the action" than a drone.

I like that idea, but the issue is it may be distracting to those watching from the top.

For DCI, one would think the majority of the shots set up would be high.  During a pit/percussion/brass soloist/guard moment they get in closer, but those cameras must have zoom capabilities so they can stay back a little.  Fans would adapt quickly to its use.  Flo would have a chance to be involved also.

Very true.

And we need this why?  What "action" do I need to be so close to?  I like seeing the full field especially with corps that layer and integrate many sections and voices.  I don't have a need to have the inside looks.  Too much could be missed imo.

Agreed.  IMO, multicam is too often TOO multicam - a barrage of quick cut views and lingering too long on closeup shots - that detracts from getting a good feel of the show.  I'm not against multicam at all.  I guess what I'd like to see is a THOROUGH job scouting the shows during the entire season to plan the shot sequence/camera angles for each corps come Championship Week so we're not cutting to a closeup just as a big drill move/hit happens.
