Orlando Predators Intro Video

Well it's been a very long few months, but the Orlando Predators Intro video is finally done. It premiered last night at the first homegame at the Amway Arena. We got there kind of late so I kind of missed it, but I'll just go to another game to see it on the Jumbotron. XD

It was shot using the Vivid RGB preset on the A1 with the Merlin Steadicam and it was edited in Final Cut Studio 2. The ending graphic I didn't do. I got that from the arena.

I put it online, so here it is for anyone who wants to watch it.

And everyone should watch ESPN 2 on April 6th to see it on national television. XD

A little on the dark side, but cool none the less.

I have no idea. This is the first time I've used Vimeo.

Click on the right side of the screen on the HD button. You can toggle it off and on.

I put it in Color in FCS2 and used the Film Look FX to crush the blacks and up the contrast, then I made the "film grain" zero.

Nothing at all to say really. Just wanted to bring it to the top because I'm a whore. =)

Just wanted to know what other people thought of it.

Very nicely done. Cuts are nice and sharp and the music helps inform the piece.

Just two things I noticed:

1. The mascot's footsteps sound very fake and "plastic-y."

2. When the camera enters the locker room there is some sort of fog/mist there. When the mascot puts on his helmet, the fog/mist is gone. Its somewhat distracting.


Overall I was impressed.

Just make sure you go about 30 minutes before the game actually starts. I went to the first game and got there at 7 and completely missed it. But I saw it at the second game. XD

Thanks. I'm glad you liked it.

The footsteps from the mascot are actually the skulls on his shoulders bouncing up and down. I recorded him running in place and then stuck it in there a bunch. And the last shot was actually in a different location because I forgot to film it when we were at the Arena. Whoopsie. lol. Hopefully it's not too noticeable though.
