Michael Donegar, an ex-Johns Hopkins All-American, is getting into the video direction game big time. We’ve got a quick 3 minute video called, Game Week: Johns Hopkins, that shows “the Hop” getting ready for their big game against Syracuse back in 2010. With guys like Donegar, Jay Jalbert and BHSVideoDad making more and more lax videos, we’re going to see an exponential improvement in quality. These three guys are leading the way (Jalbert works with Maverik Lacrosse primarily and BHSVideoDad works with Oregon Men’s Lax) but I would expect some other young video buffs to make big names for themselves this Spring.
Lacrosse is a unique sport to shoot (for video), as you need to be in tight to see all the 1-on-1 action, but also need to pan out to catch the whole scene of action. The ball moves very quickly and stick fakes can get even the best videographers moving in the wrong direction. Mix in some black and white shots for drama, add in a nice voice over and some inspiring music and you’ve got a video. Take it to the next level and you’ve got a Johns Hopkins Lacrosse documentary. Good stuff! Thanks to Chris Drouin for sending this over!!
