I worked as a camera man at the inaugural ChampTruck race at PIR working the live broadcast on the last turn before the main straight stretch, and also doing the video work for all of the live interview segments in the pit area. The video below is quite long since it covers a full day of racing but there are some great highlights especially at the end of the last race on Sunday, October 4th.
I was brought in as a camera person to shoot the flat track motorcycle races at Castle Rock, WA, and I manned the camera on the last turn of the race track. As they line up on the front stretch I got the backs of the riders, but I was able to capture the racers at all positions around the turns. You can see my work in the following videos.
I was brought in as a videographer to help film B-roll for an episode of Mountain Bike Mania. I shot all of the scenes of biking out in the big open clearing where they were jumping as well as about half of the scenes of them riding through the thick forests.
I had a fun time up in Castle Rock, Washington shooting the AMA Pro motorcycle races. I had my camera set up on a hill right in the center of the track so I could capture a full 360° shot of the race. AMA also had GoPro cameras mounted on bikes, and a couple of other angles of the action from right along the track. During the interviews I took the wider angle of the two. I did videography on this but did not edit the videos. Check it out:
I traveled to Eugene as a representative of MaxPreps and CBS to video the presentation of the Army National Guard National Rankings Trophy. The spokesperson from MaxPreps was not a good public speaker at all, so I stepped in to assist with the presentation and let him off the hook. For a last minute change up, I think I did quite well.
I provide high school sports coverage for MaxPreps.com, a CBS affiliate, and a segment that I shot and edited was featured as a part of their Friday Night Live broadcast on October 5th, 2012. The feature highlights running back Thomas Tyner who set all kinds of records a few weeks earlier with 10 touchdowns in a single game. The feature starts at about 9:15 into the video below.
You can also watch the same segment on the Vimeo link below without trying to find it in the middle of the show.
Once in a while I like to post links to projects that I enjoyed working on, or am particularly proud of how they turned out. Enjoy!
