Chiefs Update #2

Hey, everyone!

I have been trying to find time to write a post to update all of you guys on what I have been doing with the Chiefs.  I have been incredibly busy, and I am working like crazy.  Here is what I have done so far in a nutshell:

– worked an NFL game
– seen a B2 bomber
– filmed a Redline Chemistry show
– been to training camp
– seen how to produce a live event like a Chiefs game
– seen the Rams practice facility
– talked to a sniper who just got back from Iraq…

I have also met Lenny Dawson, Dick Vermeil, Mitch Holthus and many more.

I have already gone on several shoots this semester.
I have be able to work (so far) with two different kind of gear setups.  My favorite is most defiantly the Canon DSLR Kit.  They have a Canon 5d and Canon 7d in the kit.  These two cameras are unbelievable, and I will be posting some of the footage I have shot on my first couple times out.

I have learned a lot in the last few weeks about professional editing and how a large media company stays organized.  I am soaking up all this new information and really trying to find out why I am doing things instead of just learning what buttons to push.

During the open Chiefs practice tomorrow night, I will be shooting with the 7d, which I am very pumped about.  If you want to see the first thing I shot to go to KCChiefs.com, and check it out here.  It isn’t the most creative thing in the world, but give me a break—I have only been here two weeks!

Chiefs Update #1

and so it begins…

Tomorrow I begin my work with the Kansas City Chiefs.  I am currently writing this post from the Famers house, where I will be staying this semester.  I will keep sweitzer media as updated as possible during my time here in KC.

I know that I will be on my first shoot of the semester on friday. When I find out more about it, I will put it here first.

Basically, bookmark sweitzer media.  Lots of awesome things are gonna be happening here in the next semester.
