Multimodal Interaction and the Production of the ARD Sportschau


I currently work on a research project on the complex communication processes within the making of the ARD Sportschau. For this project, we (Axel Schmidt, Institut für Deutsche Sprache, Mannheim and I) collected 33 hours of video material in the studio and stadion. The foto below documents the data collection in the booth of soccer commentator Steffen Simon and his colleagues.
