I'm not clear on what you have a question about. How did they make those great shots? What wide angle lens did they use? How did they edit it together? What is the name of the dog at the end?

Let us know and maybe we can be more helpful.

The answer to the question might be: They cut out all of the shots that did not go in.

I doubt it. I figure that they just only show us 1 out of every 100 shots or so.

Practice.












And lots of burned tape.

i dont see how any of those shots are possible. i was thinking it was like a powerade commerical. like michael vick throwing a football 300 yards or lebron james sinking 6 shots from 100 feet.

This has been cross-posted in the main open forum.

You should leave your thread in just one forum because otherwise things get confusing and out of hand.

EDIT: A moderator merged the threads. This was formerly cross-posted.

Each of the shots are very do-able. You just gotta be good...

Just like 9 ball ... 5 banks is easy when you repeat repeat repeat

And since mini dv tape is only a couples o' bucks per, let it roll.

How is this possible?! Even 1 out of 100 shots seems unlikely. There HAS to be some digital trickery at work here... Right?

Unbelievable.

Keyword: "unlikely," not impossible.

"HAS to" ...? Nope. Cf: law of averages, crossed with lots of time, practice and talent.

Note that this is shot indoors; these guys had all the time they needed to get these clips.

That hoop doesn't look regulation size to me. It would make a huge difference if it wasn't.

You probably could use digital trickery, but I think luck (combined with talent) is cheaper.
