Lacrosse Video

Hey all.
I'm in the process of doing a Girl lacrosse championship game DVD. I ran a Canon XL2 for a wide shot of the entire and a small Handycam on the sideline but that fell through after the first half.

Regardless, I'm editing on the entire Production Suite, with Premiere Pro as my main editing program. I'm trying to think of some fun things I can do with the video, maybe some stuff in After Effects for an introduction that highlights some of the key parts of the game... Here is a link to the small trailer I made for the team's website. (Sorry for the awful quality...way too much compression)

Any ideas? I've got interviews with the players/coaches after they won the game, some cookout stuff, some practices.

I just would like everyone getting the DVD something worth their 20 dollars a copy, rather than just a wide shot of the entire game for an hour.

I'm also running Encore so I'd like to make some cool intros for the DVD menu.

Your help is appreciated!

You can definitely cut in some funny bits from the interviews. Use some motion graphics to bridge the shots, such as players' names or generic text (Action! Excitement! you get the idea :). You can even design some bumpers like they have on Sports TV channels (that 2-3 sec long graphics that divide the sequences)

Avoid using those LOONG "Dip to white" transitions, they might look better if only 5-7 frames long. Also, make your shots shorter (faster) in this intro. In the game itself, longer shots are better, so the audience knows what's happening. You can even play with color correction, just DON'T use the cheesy Old film effect, it's way overused in inappropriate places.

Hope this helps.

did some Lacrosse for the first time this year, man its hard to tract that ball ;)

Try to fit as much as you can on there. Make a menu that makes it easy to jump around the game and include a small highlights video of the game. I took the easy way out and just included a video of all the goals.
Only "special" thing I did was got a picture of a Lax stick, cut it out, a ball, put the school logo on the ball, and made a transition out of it.

You can see the goal highlights from games online @ my web site.
