Rumble and Sway

“This video is a mixtape of the 321 different shots we made over the two week period in NYC for the 2013 US Open broadcast on ESPN. One of our consistent gigs the past couple of years has been shooting and editing timelapse for broadcast. Now I’m not talking about live timelapse transmitting or anything impossible like that. We shoot scenics around the city, stylized shots of the stadiums, moving people and whatnot. In terms of this project, we also focused on elements like trophies, racket stringing, hyperlapses through the crowd, stadiums filling up, draw boards going up. Then we render these individual shots, deliver them the next day and feed them into the broadcast unit who in turn uses them to create daily teases, athlete features, and bumpers for the matchups. We give them these clip reels on a silver platter ready to go.”
