This is a conversation between me and Ye Fan, the relay staff member of the Jiangsu Changzhou Division of the Chinese League. Since staying at the Blue Zone Hotel on September 9, Ye Fan, as a member of the China League Broadcasting Team, has been in the "two points in line" between the hotel and the stadium for more than a month of closure.
In this special season where most of the fans are not allowed to enter the game, the live broadcast of the game on TV and the Internet has become more important, and fans can watch the live broadcast of the game, and they cannot do without these "orders of takeaways are impossible to achieve." "The extravagant hope" of the staff...
At the beginning of September, some staff members of the Asian Games Channel were notified of a meeting. A well-informed person said: "Next, there will be a special task, which is difficult, but very meaningful."
With longing, and even a little uneasy, these staff came to the meeting room on time. "At that time, the start time of the Chinese Premier League was just determined. Sports Power will continue to participate in the broadcast of this season as a broadcaster. Because the previous cooperation has established a foundation of trust, they commissioned us to carry out the public signal work in the Changzhou Division." Zhu Xiaoping, director of the channel’s event department, said, “Because of the requirements of epidemic prevention, the staff involved in the broadcast will live in the Changzhou competition area this time, and the staff in the blue zone will not be able to leave the hotel and stadium. Such an experience will definitely become us. A very special part of the career of a TV worker."
Since the Asian Games Channel began broadcasting the Greentown’s Chinese Super League home games in 2009, it has participated in the live broadcast of many large-scale events including the Chinese Super League, the Chinese Football Association, the CBA, the Youth Games and the Military Games. It has a good reputation within, which also made Sports Power choose the Asian Games channel in this special season, entrusting them to complete the broadcast work of the Changzhou Division of the Chinese League.
The Asian Games Channel sent nearly 20 staff members including camera, director, subtitles, and slow motion. The Asian Games Channel attached great importance to this work. Leaders such as Channel Director Hu Xiaochun and Deputy Director Wang Lei were present to mobilize everyone and put forward requirements for the broadcast. After the expedition ceremony, the staff went to Changzhou on September 10 for the final preparations for the broadcast before the game.
▲Asian Games Channel broadcast team goes out
One day earlier than the other staff’s departure time, camera Ye Fan went to Changzhou on September 9th, because he was the only broadcaster of the Asian Games Channel who entered the blue zone during this broadcast.
According to the requirements of epidemic prevention and control, the China League One this season is divided into a blue zone and a green zone. The blue zone is a closed area, that is, the isolation area where the main body of each team is located. All players and staff are only allowed to stay in the stadium, training ground and stay. Hotel and other regional activities. The green zone is a non-enclosed area. Persons holding green zone certificates can move freely, but cannot contact with blue zone personnel. As a camera for the infield and player interviews, Ye Fan is a staff member of the blue zone. When arranging work, the station took into account that Ye Fan has not yet married. "Relatively free and worry less."
Ye Fan stayed at the hotel on September 9th. He underwent a nucleic acid test at the hotel. After the test, he was isolated in the room and was released the next day after receiving the test report. "It turned out that I heard that nucleic acid testing was a bit uncomfortable and I had to take a sample in my throat, so I was a little worried." Ye Fan said, "Later, I have to test once a week. I got used to it. Now I am not afraid of testing."
Other broadcasters performed nucleic acid tests in the station before departure. Considering that there are more people to be tested, Taili contacted the relevant hospital, and the hospital sent a doctor to test all the staff involved in the broadcast. The electronic version of the test report was sent to everyone’s mobile phone the next day. When the hotel reported to the hotel, the broadcaster, under the guidance of the Chinese Football Association staff, accepted the hotel staff’s verification of the test report, so that they could complete the check-in. The first step.
The second step of check-in is to fill in the form. Everyone needs to fill out three forms. The first is personal information, the second is to confirm whether to stay in the designated hotel, and the third is to fill in the itinerary of the last 14 days. After nearly half an hour, all talents have completed the strict "epidemic prevention version" check-in procedures. Next, waiting for them will be the longest and most special "broadcast season" in their careers.
▲This is their "battlefield"
From arriving in Changzhou on September 10th and leaving on October 16th, the staff of the Asian Games Channel will work in Changzhou for nearly 40 days, so they brought a lot of luggage this time. Jin Shenghang is the director of this broadcast team. Just as the midfielder responsible for organizing football matches often serves as the captain, Jin Shenghang is the main person in charge of the "frontline" of the Changzhou broadcast team. "Because the current situation is relatively special, we attach great importance to epidemic prevention work. This time we brought 5 large bags of masks, a total of about 500, and some alcohol and disinfectant." Jin Shenghang said.
The staff in the green zone can leave the hotel, but in principle, they are not allowed to leave Changzhou. Broadcasters who obey the overall situation consciously stay in Changzhou and spend most of the time in the hotel room. Yang Yang, who is in charge of slow motion work, found the game controller after digging through boxes and cabinets at home before leaving. It has been useless for nearly 10 years, and the controller is covered with dust. Yang Yang said: "We have also broadcast large-scale sports games before. The longest time is to live in the competition venue for the first half of a month. This time we will live for more than a month, and we have to confine ourselves to activities near the hotel. Ask people to play games at that time, so that time passes faster."
Jin Shenghang’s "magic weapon" is the Mi Box, which is used for on-demand TV shows. Jin Shenghang is a "Jin Yong fan". During his stay in Changzhou, he replayed several Jin Yong's martial arts dramas: "When I go back to my room at night, I can pass the time by watching the drama. The first I watched was the 83 version of "The Legend of the Condor Heroes". Watching the 95 version of "The Legend of Condor Heroes", I'm ready to watch "Yi Tian Shou Long Ji". I don't know how many times I have watched these dramas, but I still like to watch them. Now it is the best way to pass the time."
金胜航的“法宝”是“ Mi Box”，用于点播电视节目。金胜航是“金庸迷”。在常州期间，他播放了金庸的几部武术剧：“当我晚上回到自己的房间时，我可以通过看电视来打发时间。我第一次看的是83版的《 《神鹰英雄》。观看95版本的《神鹰英雄传》，我准备看《艺天守龙记》。我不知道有多少次看过这些戏剧，但我仍然喜欢看着他们。这是打发时间的最好方法。”
Ye Fan brought a few books that he usually wanted to read but didn’t have time to read. Because the closed time was long, he was worried about not enough to read: “I still like to read paper books. If you bring too many books, they will be too heavy. I brought a few books, and now I’m not willing to read them too quickly, I’m afraid I didn’t read them after reading them.”
Taking into account the requirements of epidemic prevention, the members of the broadcast team consciously try not to go as far as possible. The only "entertainment" to go out is that a few people went to the cinema next to the hotel to watch "Yai Bai": "After watching it, the blood boils. I think it’s not so boring and arduous to be broadcast outside for a long time.” The staff eats lunch in the hotel every day. After a long time, they want to change their taste, so they searched for a good noodle restaurant nearby, Jin Shenghang. He smiled and said, "Everyone is already familiar with the few delicious noodle restaurants downstairs."
The friends can go out to watch movies in the hotel and eat bowls of noodles downstairs in the hotel. For Ye Fan, who is in the blue zone, it is a luxury that is impossible to achieve.
Every time Ye Fan leaves the hotel, he can only take the designated transportation vehicle to the stadium. After the game is over, he has to take the vehicle back to the hotel. Communication with colleagues on the Asian Games Channel is mainly about shouting a few words on the intercom on the stadium, or picking up things in the designated handover area of the stadium. Things must be placed in the handover area, and the staff in the green area will leave quickly after they are put away, so that the staff in the blue area can go to pick it up.
If you want to get the starting list, the staff in the blue zone should reach out and pass it, and the staff in the green zone should reach out to pick it up. There is a fence in the middle, the distance is about two or three meters. Jin Shenghang said: "Sometimes we will have a video call with Ye Fan at night, so that he can communicate with ‘people outside’, otherwise he will be really lonely."
Ye Fan recorded this moment in his WeChat Moments on September 27: "Today I talked a few more words with my brothers through the walkie-talkie, and I feel very refreshed."
This broadcast team is a group of post-80s and post-90s, most of whom are married and have children. This time they went to Changzhou to live broadcast, which was the longest time they left their children. Jin Shenghang said: "After finishing a day's work, making phone calls with family members and video chats with children are the most anticipated things."
Jin Shenghang’s two children are in the third and fourth grades of elementary school respectively. He told the children "Dad is going to work for more than a month" before leaving, and the children asked "Then you can come back to see us during work?" I really can't go back this time." Jin Shenghang said.
Due to the requirements of the epidemic prevention work, the team had to stay in Changzhou for nearly 40 days, even the National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival holidays. Ni Yipeng, who is in charge of subtitling, has only been 8 months old. He said: “Every day I have to video with my child, otherwise I’m afraid that when I go back, the child won’t recognize me at all. It’s the most relaxing thing I feel to be videotaping with at home. It's up. At this time, my family needs me the most, but for work, I can only leave home for more than a month, and feel that I owe my family a lot."
▲Their "comrades in arms"
According to the epidemic prevention regulations of the competition zone, Ye Fan in the blue zone can collect the express delivery. The courier will put the express delivery in the designated area. After the hotel has killed it, Ye Fan can take the express delivery. However, as a staff member of the blue zone, Ye Fan cannot order takeaways. "I mainly buy some food online, such as instant noodles." Ye Fan said. After staying in the hotel for a long time, Ye Fan missed the mustard moon cakes most: "The Mid-Autumn Festival is coming. When I was in Hangzhou, I could already buy freshly baked mustard moon cakes on the street. A hot mustard moon cake."
I went to the stadium to broadcast the game a few days ago. The competition area prepared some McDonald's burgers. Ye Fan ate happily. After eating, he immediately posted a circle of friends: "The first McDonald's in autumn, the game will continue in the evening." Ye Fan smiled. He said, “I didn’t eat much of this fast food before, and I’ve never felt it so delicious. After I posted to Moments that day, a few players who lived in the Blue Zone Hotel joked and left a message: Bring us something too. , Greedy to death."
几天前我去体育馆直播了比赛。比赛区准备了一些麦当劳汉堡。叶帆开心地吃饭。吃完饭后，他立即在朋友圈里发布：“秋天的第一个麦当劳，比赛将持续到晚上。”叶凡笑了。他说：“我以前没有吃过这种快餐，而且我从来没有觉得它如此美味。那天我发布到Moments之后，住在Blue Zone Hotel的一些玩家开玩笑并留下了一条信息：也给我们带来一些东西。 ，贪婪至死。”
In order to improve the staff’s food, the Chinese Football Association arranged a "one person, one pot" small hot pot for everyone. Ye Fan also had a meal. "This is the best hot pot I have ever eaten in my life," he said. But I don’t know when it’s time to eat hot pot next time. "Although there are some familiar players and they also live in the same hotel, Ye Fan rarely communicates with them-each team has its own." Exclusive restaurant", Ye Fan, who is in charge of broadcast work, does not meet with players and coaches when eating; he will encounter them when walking in the garden of the hotel, but they can’t touch them either, they can only say hello from a distance. , And everyone wears masks.
However, not being able to go out is not all a “bad thing”. Ye Fan runs and exercises in the hotel’s gym almost every day: “I always wanted to exercise when I was in Hangzhou, but I stopped going when I was busy. With a lot of it, I have developed the habit of going to the gym every day, and I feel a much healthier lifestyle, haha."
▲ Rare event time before the broadcast
In this broadcast team, Ni Yipeng and Zhu Yun had their birthdays in September, and the birthday of another staff member, Wang Ping, was in early October, so the team simply gave these three birthdays together on September 21.
The members of the Green Zone team had a meal at a restaurant near the hotel and ordered a big cake. Zhu Yun said: "This is the first time in my life that I have such a collective birthday. It has also been reported that football teams often celebrate birthdays collectively, because most of the birthdays of players are during training or competitions. I did not expect to enjoy a professional career. The treatment of the players."
But Ye Fan missed this birthday party. He could only watch his colleagues lively in the video.
The loneliness belongs to oneself, the excitement belongs to others. This is not the first time Ye Fan has this feeling. Because the hotel is right next to the China Dinosaur Park in Changzhou, Ye Fan can see others having fun in the playground in his room. Ye Fan is an adult. He didn't like these kind of children's mobile games or adult excitement rides before, but this time, he has always been jealous of the players outside the window. "When the first stage of the competition is over, I can walk out of the hotel freely. The first thing is to go to the Dinosaur Park for a day and relax."
Nearly 40 days, 30 games, this is the task of the broadcast staff of the Asian Games Channel in the Changzhou Division. However, this is not over. After the start of the competition in the Chinese Premier League championship group, they will return to Changzhou and restart their work and life. Only in this way can fans understand the process and the game in such a special season. result.
