What a crazy spring!! Snow in late March, rain and thunderstorms, reschedules, three & four games a week, team dinners, practices, post season, a graduation! Spring just flew by! Can’t believe it is over already. Seems like just yesterday we were trying to put everything on the calendar and schedule it.
This lacrosse season brought us 4 schools to film, some all season, some just a few games. Salesianum and Caesar Rodney Lacrosse brought us on for full seasons, while we also went to Tatnall and Wilmington Friends for recruitment films.
This was our 5th season with Salesianum lacrosse and it proved to be jam packed just like every other season, lots of great games and top competition. While their season ended slightly different than they planned, adversity builds character! So no doubt the underclassmen will come in with a renewed perspective and lots to gain next season! Each year we produce their banquet film and team highlight! The tradition, brotherhood and their “playing for others” motto, are always key in their film. Combine those items with the stick skills, defense and sick goals on offense, it makes for a highly entertaining film.
We started with Caesar Rodney last season for some recruitment films, this year thanks to some very supportive sponsors, we were hired for the full season highlight package complete with banquet film and team film. Advantech Security, Inc., Aloe & Carr, P.A. and Vision Quest Eye Care Center, Inc. sponsored the Riders regular season and gave us the opportunity to provide Caesar Rodney lacrosse with their first full season Nkognito Production. This season was also the 20th anniversary of the program. The season was filled with goal after goal after goal. Their season ended in the semi-finals giving us more highlights to incorporate in their film.
Our recruitment films at Wilmington Friends and Tatnall gave us an opportunity to meet new people, new athletes and enjoy watching more talented individuals around the state. All the games we filmed for girls lacrosse at Wilmington Friends were intense to the last minute. Great close games are always fun to film and watch!! It is always great to see so many student athletes working hard and playing the sports they love.
The end of spring also brought us to Lake Forest for the 4th year in a row to film their graduation. It’s a long night but seeing so many young people accomplish high school and set out on a new chapter is always touching.
With graduation done and two banquets completed, its time to spend the next month to two months editing in the studio. Many films to put together in a short time. Recruitments, two team films produced and shipped, graduation film produced and shipped as well as a host of individual cinematic films. Summer is our in studio busy time, which is okay, just in time to turn on the AC!
