CIAC Battle of the Fans
The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) announced the Battle of the Fans (BOTF) contest, where schools would produce a video showing the spirit of the student body and their fan sections, with a focus on school events such as athletics and pep rallies. As a student of Notre Dame High School – West Haven, CT and a member of GoGreenKnights, the schools broadcast club I worked in conjunction with Green Machine, the school spirit/fan section club to begin planning and producing the video for the BOTF contest. I had worked primarily on recording and editing the video with occasional input from Green Machine and school officials, while Green Machine worked primarily on the production including interviews and b-roll shots overlayed over audio.
Production was done utilizing Adobe Premiere Pro for the entirety of the project, and was shot using a variety of equipment. Interviews were shot using a Panasonic 1080p camera and an external microphone to capture audio due to the inability to capture audio with lavalier microphones. The recording was performed primarily over the course of a week due to the project timeline and to reduce the time students and athletes would be out of classes.
