On the road again, this time in Knoxville, TN. We were called up to do this shoot right after we had finished up a shoot in Nashville. We all took a little “working vacation” and hung out in Tennessee for a few days. Dave brought his entire family so they could explore while we made TV magic.
We ended up in Knoxville, following a young, talented volleyball player for a feature for Under Armor. I took particular interest in this as volleyball is one of my big hobbies (I play and coach when I’m not shooting). We started with her morning workout routine at a local gym then headed to her house for interviews with her and her family.
The Set Up:
We shot on 2 Fx9 all day. I put mine on the slider for some fancy b-roll. We set up our interview using a couple big lights to try and combat the midday sun hitting concrete. We wrapped the interviews and headed to the court where she got some training in with her club coach. It was a long day, but we got some good footage and got to shoot volleyball!
PH: How did you land the project?
Jeff McGovern: I got the project from word of mouth via an old friend in the industry who uses us as a southern crew all the time.
PH: What equipment did you use?
