Storm season came to a sudden end a couple weeks back. The season went by fast and ended fast, so I figured I should take a second to highlight my favorite videos of the sesaon for 2011. None made the splash that Brian Aglers "Stanky Legg" did last season, but it was a fun season nonetheless.
#3 - Swin Cash Grab - Fans and players all like Sue Bird Racing, but from a video perspective, my favorite of the mini-games is definitely Swin Cash Grab... in no small part thanks to Swin Cash, who may be more natural on camera then anyone I've ever worked with.
#2 - Sue Bird and Swin Cash Reflect on 9/11 - I put this video together for the KONG broadcast of our last game of the regular season on 9/11/11. It was a nice change of pace to be able to step outside of sports for a minute and be part of the larger national conversation about what the 10th anniversary of 9/11 means to people.
#1 - Playoff Intro Video - The playoff intro video almost always ends up being my favorite video of the year. It's the kind of video you only get to make working for professional sports. The over the top seriousness and intensity woud be, well, over the top in any other context. Also, this was my first stab at rotoscoping. I'm glad I learned how to do it, but at 6+ hours PER SHOT for the opening sequence, I'm not exactly eager to do it again.
