Go To Team Atlanta Crew | US Courts Sewanee Project
|In 1899, Sewanee College’s football team played five games in six days. Unheard of, right? With an undefeated season, the only team to score points against Sewanee during this time was Auburn.
Go To Team partnered with US Courts to capture interviews for the 1899 Sewanee Project, a documentary covering the historic season!
Go To Team’s Atlanta DP, Nate Silverman, worked with US Courts to help document this impressive period in football history. We were able to get the behind the scenes stories from College Football reporter Tony Barnett and Ken Stephens, historian for the College Football Hall of Fame.
Setting up in the offices at the College Football Hall of Fame, Nate lit the interview with a Bron Kobold 400W HMI through a silk. He also used a Generay Bi-Color Light Panel for an edge light! The camera used to film the interview was a Sony F5 with Canon L-Series lenses.
After the interviews were over, Kent Stephens gave us a tour of the Sewanee College artifacts and the exhibit of Henry Seibels, the only player from the team enshrined in the Hall of Fame!
The artifacts included items such as jerseys, pads, helmets, and even what a football looked like in 1899! For these shots, Nate created an interesting b-roll by putting the camera on an MYT Works 4ft slider, creating some dynamic camera moves.
Go To Team had a blast learning more about the history of college football with US Courts, and we look forward to participating in similar projects in the future!
