ESPN – Elite 11 Finals

The Elite 11 Quarterback competition selects the top 25 high school quarterbacks in the country to compete for a spot in the top 11 and overall MVP. The camp/competition is coached by former Superbowl Champion Trent Dilfer and a talented line up of assistant coaches. The goal of the camp is to challenge and groom these young elite athletes for the next chapter in their careers. Trent and his team must be doing something right, last season 22 of the starting QB’s in the NFL came up through the camp.

I was one of the specialty cameras on this show, tasked with shooting interviews and creative transitional b-roll elements. Along side my good friend Dane Henry we shot on two RED Scarlet X’s and a Canon 5dmkII. Once again it was an awesome trip working with the talented team at DLP Entertainment, hats off to Executive Producers Micheal Hughes and Mark Mayer. Be sure to check out the 2 part mini documentary series on ESPN August 7th & 14th at 7pm Eastern and 4pm Pacific.

What a good looking crew!

Fox Sports – San Diego Padres Open

I Just got back from a week long shoot in San Diego filming the Padres for Fox Sports and DLP Entertainment. The objective of the project was to shoot the opening montage for the Padres, which airs before every game on Fox Sports. This was a really cool assignment, we shot just about every corner of San Diego in a really artistic and stylized way, basically a camera mans dream. For this shoot we wanted to roll as light as possible, so naturally the camera of choice was the Canon 5d MKII, an arsenal of lenses and Kessler pocket dollies to add a bit of movement to the shots. Check out this slick edit from the boys over at DLP Entertainment.
