New York and DC Video Production Crews Team Up For the NHL Winter Classic with Nick Sports
Our New York video production crew, Reid Petro, and our DC video production crew, David DiFalco, joined forces in Queens to help Nick Sports with “slime time” at the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.
Nick Sports Slimes Hockey Stars
Did we get slimed? No. But a few hockey players sure did! We went behind the scenes of a Nick Sports slime shoot where the Buffalo Sabers and New York Rangers were competing in this year’s NHL Winter Classic on January 1st. It was as fun as it sounds. The day started out with a bunch of B-roll during hockey practice, beauty shots of the Citi Field arena. They transformed the Mets stadium into a hockey fan’s dream. After practice, we played some games with the players. Yes, we slimed them. A lot. It was wild.
Behind the Scenes of the NHL Winter Classic
This game marked the 10th anniversary of the NHL Winter Classic. The Rangers came out on top with a 3-2 win in overtime. Nick Sports has been making strides to keep kids interested in sports. And what gets a kid more excited than by sliming their favorite athletes? The slimes our video production crews shot were aired on the jumbotron during the game that was aired on NBC.
It was a blast to work with a fellow GTT cameraman, Nick Sports and cool athletes. It will go down as one of the best projects of all time. What a great way to start the new year!#MakeCoolTV
