11 Jun Following a Dynasty – Chicago Crew spends day with Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse
Shot another Big Ten Game Day Experience feature! This time it was right in my back yard, Evanston IL. The Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse team is building a dynasty as they have won the national championship 7 times in the past 8 seasons. It was awesome to be able document “a day in the life” for this championship team. We chose to shoot all of the footage on the Sony FS700, with a few Go Pros scattered about, of course. I went with the 700 because it truly is a beautiful camera, with the Super CMOS 35 sensor capable of cranking it up to 300 fps at 1080, it was perfect for the style I was trying to achieve. I fitted the camera with our set of 8 Nikon primes and my MYT slider. Capturing fast action, slow motion footage on a slider, well that’s all in a days work for me. Along with our interviews and b-roll, I shot some stylized hero shots and locker room cut-aways to add some drama to the piece and compliment the slow motion footage I had captured at practice. We went outside of the box for our Go Pro shots. Multiple mounting positions such as; helmets, crossbars, lacrosse sticks, time lapses and even used one as a lacrosse ball. Check out some of the still frames from our shoot as well as my interview set up!
