Closing credit help

I recently got my own TV Show. It will be starting in October and I am trying to find a creative way to display my credits at the end of the show. I would love any ideas if you have any.

To give you a quick background. It's a golf show that will air on Time Warner Cable, On demand and I am streaming each show online at the website. It's kinda like "Survivorman" as in, I am doing everything. I think it's going to be a fun challenge and I should gain some good experience in doing it.

The show will be a little more upbeat than your average golf show that you might fall asleep to. I have a great format and segments and I want to try to film the show with sort of a movie feel. It will be in 16:9 and I have a lot of cool ways I'll be shooting things, that should or I hope make it fun to watch since it's a bit different but nothing extreme.

I wanted something cool for the credits, I read so much great advice on this site I would love to hear some input. My idea is to have a close up shot of a basket of balls from the range on it's side. As I take the golf ball out one by one with my club the credit will be on the ball and I will hit it away and take another. Something simple but a bit creative or different.

I don't post that much, but try to read and learn from everyone else. I look forward to reading your ideas if any.

Thanks so much,

Hey Matthew, first of all congrats on the new show.

I like your idea with the balls from the basket so i'm really just expanding on your idea, You could do the same thing with all the normal things that happen on a golf course ,for example:

start with your balls from the basket then

The next credit could be on the club as he puts it back in the bag,

The next credit could be on the front of the electric golf cart as it rolles over the camera (only if there is enough space under the cart),

The next one could be on the putter after taking the shot,

Then on the ball as it rolles up to the hole you could freeze frame for the credit before letting it fall in ,

and so on...

That way you're moving from place to place which is always more visually interesting.

Hope it helps.
