A few weeks back i had the opportunity to step up to the plate and try some new things for the promos department at @nbcsports
! as a shooter who has worked primarily in the doc sports side of things for the past 6-7 years... i’m used to dropping into situations unplanned, handling everything myself, nailing shots on the fly with no 2nd chances, pull my own focus, charge all my hundreds of batteries...it’s become my comfort zone and standard operating procedure.
i quickly learned on this shoot that yes....although i can do many of those things myself, if i build a solid team, come with some bigger ideas and lots of technology....i can accomplish soo much more through collaborating with others than trying to be the “jack of all” that i’ve had to be in past situations. this is growth and i’m happy to be growing.
thanks to the trust and unwavering support of joseph lee, @drmudd221 @jobrien85
, for just letting us play with the @notredamedrumline
after we wrapped the shoot the drumline asked if they could do their pregame ritual cheer in the middle of the field!!! “hell yes” was the answer...we fired up the cameras again and came up with a game plane and this is the result. ironically....this unplanned scene ended up being the first actual footage i saw from our shoot out in the wild. thanks to the whole notre dame drum line for letting me....this “ex band nerd/drummer” geek out and shoot some rad footage with you! i’m sure i’ll be back! let’s dream up bigger ideas! look for more footage from our shoot in promos throughout the season on nbc.
