This was an interesting story to produce. TommieMedia did not have video rights for the semi-final game so I had to plug in to the feed from the ESPN production truck and write down the time codes for the shots that I wanted. I was only able to shoot before and after the game and I think that the story is one of the better one’s I’ve produced.
This is a piece on the second round of the NCAA Division III playoffs that I produced for TommieMedia. One of the things I enjoy about this piece is the shot of the bell at the beginning. I experimented all season with different angles to shoot the bell from and this is one of my favorites.
I love this package because I feel like there were some very good shots in the beginning to demonstrate the cold and really help tell the story.
The fun thing about blow outs is that you have more time to experiment with cool cutaways and different shots when the game has already been decided. Here I was able to get some great finds like the football on the opening shot (that wasn’t planted, it was actually just sitting there) and shooting into the sun to get that cool wash out.
This is one of my favorite packages I produced for TommieMedia. I was able to get some cool angles and tell the story from a unique perspective.
I really like how this story came together. It’s always a little challenging to make a 78-7 game interesting and I think there are some good stories that emerged within this piece.
I was blessed enough to cover two Tommie/Johnnie games in 2015 and create some cool videos telling those stories. Here are the packages:
This was one of the first things that I shot and produced for class. The point of the assignment was to shoot a 1-minute video featuring an interview and cut in b-roll footage over the top. It was pretty straight forward but I wanted to have a little fun with the project so I played around with the story.
