Raleigh Crew Gets Dunked On

Featured image

March is basketball and Raleigh Cameraman Jimmy Hall has been in the thick of it.

We spent a couple of days in Alpharetta Georgia telling the story of Shaquille Johnson (AKA 747), who many in the US consider to be the best high school dunker in the country. We emptied our pelican cases on Shaquille, shooting with three different cameras:  Panasonic HDX 900 (with Nano Flash), Canon 5D Mark 2, and the Go Pro Hero 2..we also pulled out our new versatile 5ft MYT slider.

We interviewed Shaquille’s family, friends, and coach, we were looking for the voices that had inspired and drove this young man to his success in high school athletics.  We wanted to showoff Shaquille’s dunking mastery, so we did some really cool setups to expose his diversity and agility.
