It was a cold, rainy, Saturday morning in the Midwest. A perfect day for college football, and what better match up than the Stanford-Notre Dame rivalry which always lives up to the hype with some of the better finishes in recent memory. I got the call to head to South Bend and cover the game with Pac-12 report Ashley Adamson. We shot a standup before the game at the Notre Dame tailgate with a contingent of Stanford fans who made the long trip to be in attendance for the game. We then fed the footage we shot before the game back to the Pac-12 studios via a Live U pack which uses cell phone service to act as a Satellite truck and beam the footage to the satellites waiting in California. Once the footage was all fed they were able to edit it together with a feature on Stanford’s quarterback and air it before the 3:30 EST kickoff!
Ashley and I retired to the warmth of the press box for the game and waited until the game had ended to shoot some post game reaction and interviews. The game came down to the wire as expected and Stanford lost on a heartbreaking play in the final minute of the game as Notre Dame threw a long touchdown pass on third down and long. We caught up with some of the Stanford players to get their take on what happened and shot a stand up on the field afterwards. We sent this footage back to Pac-12 and they aired it on their late-night wrap up show.
If you want to catch some of the post game footage I shot you can find it here!
Any openings anywhere ?
So I am looking for an lcd viewfinder/monitor to use with my Canon 5DMKIII and also the occasional C300 rental that I do.
I have used the Zacuto Z Finder, but have not been so impressed by it nor the price. I like the Small HD DP4.
Anybody have experience with either and can discuss the pros/cons of each?
Vanderbilt University, a smaller school in the SEC is preparing to go up against UGA. That is the story…Shades of David and Goliath. How can a team prepare for such an overwhelming opponent? This is the story we told under the watchful guide of Intersport. Using the Sony F-3, we trained alongside the Commodores, went to their team meetings, listened to their pep talks, and shared their hopes and fears. Over the course of the week, we shot handheld, we shot on sticks, we shot with ENG lenses, we shot with DSLR lenses, we brought out our slider, we shot beautiful scenics, we shot raw emotion, physical stress, the preparation of the body, the steeling of the mind. The week culminated in battle on the UGA field. The story of the Commodores struggle airs on Saturday, November 15, on CBS “College Football’s Open Season” at 2pm EST. check it out.
