Here are a few tips for capturing video of your athlete:
1 – You can use your own camera. No need to pay someone to come out and video tape your athlete. Use the $200 – 400 to buy a great camera. I just took advantage of a Black Friday deal on Amazon and got a great HD camera for $199.
2 – Practice taking video of moving objects! Sometimes it’s hard to keep from watching the play and video at the same time. If you get a camera with a built in viewer, you can do both.
3 – Start and stop the video on each play. That makes it easy to incorporate the videos into a video editor.
4 – Take videos of skills as well. Doesn’t always have to be game footage.
5 – Get a video interview with your athlete. Have them introduce themselves, name their sport and position and how much they’d like to play at the next level. Also talk about work ethic, commitment and other things they do outside sports including grades and community service.
If you choose to, you can create your own video. iMovie is a great editor and there are other software packages out there. And, if you want some help, we can create your video for only $99.
