Livestream Commentator

As a livestream commentator, you talk during the livestreamed games. The two basic styles are play-by-play and colorful. The play-by-play commentator is there to call the action move for move, they essentially call each “play” as it happens. Things like “The Belgians have bludger control” and “The German keeper picked up the quaffle”. The color commentator is there to add the “color” to the painting, to explain why a person or team does what they do, the intended effects and other relevant info which the play by play commentator may not be able to provide due to their need to be following the action intently. You don’t have to be on screen.

Requirements:

  • Reasonable proficiency in English (spoken)

Livestream Camera Operator

As a livestream camera operator, you operate one of the cameras used to livestream the game(s). This job really doesn’t require any experience with camera work as long as you can see a quaffle and point the camera at it. When the snitch is on pitch, more zooming is required when you are on snitch cam duty, but this is also pretty natural. Some of our more experienced staff would love to talk you through it and there will be some time in between games to practice handling the cameras.

Livestream Host

As a livestream host, you will lead the analyst desk, will be the interviewer for our interview partners, and lead in producing entertaining content. n each gap between the game slots we will have someone to interview or an interesting topic to discuss, and this is where you’d come in. No experience is needed except for being comfortable being in front of a camera.

Requirements:

  • C1 Level Proficiency in English (spoken)

Livestream Analyst

As a livestream analyst, you sit down after the game(s) with the host(s) and other analyst(s) to talk about the game. Who played who, what tactics did they use, how did that work out? This does not have to be super complicated. You can talk about which team had bludger control the most, what top scorers you saw, which people made exceptionally great plays. It will be done in pairs, and no experience is needed. You have to be on screen.

Requirements:

  • Reasonable proficiency in English (spoken)

Livestream Handling

The main job of a stream handler is to click some buttons when asked, so no experience is required. Everything will be explained properly. There are a few options:

  • the vision mixer position that decides which camera goes live
  • someone has to manage the scores and cards that are shown on stream
  • record plays
  • the managing of the ref mics
  • interact with the live chat and answering questions or forwarding them to other people

Head Referee

The head referee has the authority to enforce the rules and take disciplinary action from the moment they enter the player area until they leave the player area after the final whistle. The head referee may stop play at any time to enforce rules or otherwise facilitate safe and fair gameplay.

Assistant Referee

The primary focuses of the assistant referees are: calling whether players are subject to the knockout effect; watching plays away from the quaffle; watching for balls and playing going out of bounds.

Flag Referee

The primary focuses of the snitch referee are: watching for false starts; watching plays around the flag runner; ruling whether the snitch is down and counting the 3 seconds head start; enforcing flag runner handicaps; inform the snitch runner in case of defending seeker.

Flag Runner

The flag runner’s job is to protect the flag from seekers trying to catch it. The flag runner is an official and may advise the other officials on any call.
