Race Day- Kerndl

Introduction

Finally, assignment three is over with!  I looked at a lot of past students’ work and was really looking forward to shooting my own video essay for assignment three.  Again, I was having a bit of trouble coming up with an idea, until I heard from my old track coach.  He told me he would be in town for the USATF meet this weekend.  I always love going to track meets here to see my former coach, teammates, and their parents.  I figured this would be the perfect place to shoot my video essay, so I brought my camera along and had a great time shooting.

The Life of an Athlete

Assignment 3 taught me a lot about using my camera to make videos. For this assignment I decided to film some of my fellow student-athletes. I used a variety of tight and wide shots to show what an athlete does each day.  I decided to use music to make the video more interesting.

Filming sports was definitely interesting as you can be so creative with your shots. A lot of the time I had to get on the ground just to get the perfect angle. It also took a lot of time just to meet up with each athlete so they could show me their sport. I did see some extreme athleticism throughout this project. Overall I am really proud of my work. I have never done a project like this before so I am happy how it turned out! You can check out my project here.
