This is a video of the 2009 Sammamish Lacrosse Season. It features athletes in 7th/8th grade from both the Red and Black teams this season. This is a 5 minute version of the video so some of the plays are short. There is a 35 minute version that we are going to make available to team members and families on the www.sunnywondermedia.com video production site. This is a fun look at lacrosse.
I started videotaping sports events that my sons and daughter participate in when they were very young. I have production background and experience and I like to create a story from video or at least change the long endless amounts of footage into something fun to watch. I noticed how few parents bring video cameras to games so I hope to make these available to families in an easy way.
It is time consuming to create these but fortunately I enjoy it. This 5 minute video and it’s 35 minute counterpart were created from 9 60 minute tapes. I focus on trying to include the close up to medium shots and the goals and other important moments in the games. I try not to include too much wide shot full field footage because I think it is too hard to see the plays and players but I may change that philosphy as I continue doing this. I hope to improve on the music too, someday.
