Filming Sheep Dog Trials

Gathering the scores at such an event as the ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials

 

This is a major undertaking but was well organized under the authority of the ISDS. There were a total of 10 judges covering the 4 days of the World Trial and all of this information, scores, etc., has to be collected and sorted out.

The ISDS was also responsible for the gathering of all the data for the runs (at the World Sheep Dog trial), from the 3 different qualifying fields, and the Semi Finals and Finals events, and sorting through it, checking it out and posting it for everyone to see. They were also responsible for putting the information and a short write up of the day’s competitions up on their web site. They were helped in this latter work by Peter Hall and Stacey Scott. Peter and Stacey also took many of the photos for the ISDS. It was a major job gathering and checking through all of this information. Peter and Stacey took lots and lots of photos during these 4 days of trials and so each evening they all had to be sorted through and then a decision had to be made as to which ones should go up and which handlers should be represented in these photos. They also had to be cropped, enhanced, some color changing if necessary and then sent up into space. There were many evenings when they worked through until midnight so that the folk in other parts of the world could get their information as to the happenings at these sheep dog trials.
