I got my Video on ESPN Sportscenter! #1 in Top 10 other night


Recommended Posts

Hey, this ended up on ESPN Sportscenter Top 10 on Thursday night, as the #1 video, and was played on a bunch of ESPN shows on Friday.  I shot it Wed. night.  I shoot video for fun of the Jacksonville College games and this is Daniel Skinner putting down a crazy dunk from almost the free throw line.  They were playing Tyler Junior College in Tyler, TX.


I know it's not great footage, but guess I at least managed to get the shot.  I was shooting with my GH2 and the 14-140 lens.  I think I had the ISO at 1250.  Not sure I was messing around with it at different times.  Pretty cool to get it on there and the guys on the team are getting a real kick out of it.  Kind of getting crazy as it seems to be going viral.

saw this today..they were discussing if it makes mj's dunk look meaningless. the guys (i forget what show it is, but that dude and his dad) were saying there are more props deserved for the guy who took the charge..at least i think that's what they were saying. it was at work and the tv's are muted (restaurant)


i wrestled, so i don't know who is fouling who, but the dunk is insane. sick you got it captured; with a gh2 nonetheless

Thanks.  Yeah, the shows were funny...  I don't know if I caught it on everything that it might have come on of the ESPN channels, but besides Sportscenter it also came on Highlight Express.  The show you were talking about maybe is, The Numbers Don't Lie, where they were saying that was like 15 feet and compared it to Jordan.  One guy didn't think so, but the announcer thought it was better even since it was in a game and he was going through a defender.  Jalen Rose was also on that show.  The guy and I guess  it is his Dad is the "Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable" show.  They had a really funny segment on it about the guys groin being up in the defenders face.  That was pretty cool.


It was called a charge by the ref, but almost everyone agrees that watched it in slow-mo that the defender is clearly moving back and should have been a blocking call and not a charge..  That's typical of the ref calls around here though.


I was disappointed with the video quality on ESPN.  It looked very low resolution and worse than my Youtube video.  I asked the ESPN desk agent about it today and he said that they just pull it straight off the web in their edit room.  For some reason I had guessed that they would have some method that kept the video at the full level available on Youtube..Guess not.  They never asked me to send the video at the time of the request.  So, I sent him the file raw file later and he thanked me saying that they might run it many more times perhaps in the coming weeks/months and that now the video would look like the original.


It was also on some local TV channels and is really going viral now with various blogs linking to it.  The guys on the team are getting a real kick out of it, so I really like that.

      Hey all! I want to share this trailer for Sennheiser's Pro Talk Season 2 I shot using a Sony FS7, A7iii and A7sii.
      Two weeks before the shoot I decided I wasn't happy with my current slog3 workflow and wanted to change it up. I found Pro Color V3 (at the time, V4 was not out yet) and gave it a shot. I loaded it up on the A7sii and A7iii, barely made a few tweaks to both to match them up, give me a great result and bam. I was sold. I then created a preset in FCPX (yea I edit on FCPX for now) that took my FS7 slog3 footage and popped it into Pro Color V3 matching the other two cameras perfectly. So my new flow is like this, Pro Color on the A7 series cameras and the FS7 shoots slog3, I then match the FS7 to the A7 series cameras in post and work from there. The reason why I needed Pro Color in my life was because I had these beautiful little A7 series cameras but couldn't use them to their full (small) potential shooting slog3. I didn't want to have to tote around an external monitor, etc. There's a lot more to say but I'll leave it at that. Way more to come. Enjoy.

      Hey all, jumping right in here on the forums to share my work shot using Pro Color!

      I've come from the Canon world but now love my Sonys. Pro Color was a God-sent and I am fully embracing it!
      More to come but in the meantime please see this short video of a buddy of mine fishing shot handheld on the new Sony A7iii using a Nikkor 35mm f1.4 ai-s and 105mm f2.5 ai-s. V3 Pro Color was installed on the camera as at the time of filming V4 was not yet out. I applied a Lut of mine, Tenkara, you can grab from my website.
      Thanks Andrew for making these killer profiles!

      For sale is a slightly used Canon SL2. I'm a reviewer on YouTube and bought this camera for a review. So if you buy this, you're getting a very lightly used camera. 

      The SL2 has all the modern features from Canon. Dual Pixel AF and Digic 7 processor. I love the small size of this camera. 

      If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

      Ok this is not the pinnacle of artistic videography or technical prowess, but hopefully it can get by on a bit of story and a location that can't be beat. I'm not very active on this forum but I have learned a lot of technical tips from lurking in old threads so I thought I might share my recent video that I'm actually very pleased with.
      I know you guys love the tech stuff so I'll let you know the expensive equipment I used: Olympus E-M10 with a Panasonic 14mm f2.5 and an iPhone 6. Unfortunately more than I would have liked ended up shot on the iPhone, but what can you do. It was just the two of us up there and the success (and safety!) on the climb was definitely not a sure thing, so I considered it a success to get as much footage out of it as I did. 
      The Google Earth screen capture stuff I was pleased to figure out, but it could have been executed much better. I couldn't get the application to load the full resolution images of El Capitan, so I was stuck using the web browser which was laggy (on my computer anyways) and didn't have much in the way of camera controls.
      Anyways thanks for watching and hope you enjoy.
