Recently CSK Creative/floridavideographer.com was hired to do some videography of the New York Soccer Club to film their games at the elite Disney Showcase tournament at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida.
Having done plenty of sports videography, this was right in our wheelhouse. We’re avid soccer fans and attend plenty of the Orlando City Lions Soccer Club’s home games, but we didn’t expect a terribly high level of play from these high school students. We were wrong. Straight out of the gates these kids played with heart that was inspiring and gratifying to experience. In fact, we had to stay on mostly wide shots because the action was so quick that tight shots would send the ball out of frame in no time.
CSK Creative/floridavideographer.com was referred to the New York Soccer Club by Milton Gooding of Gooding Sports Group, who needed a Florida Videographer who had plenty of sports filming experience. Gooding Sports Group helps student/athletes who show promise make it to their perfect fit at the university level, so naturally having a video of the soccer games at the Disney Showcase made sense both to show scouts and to evaluate level of play.
At this point, plenty of scouts have shown interest in the New York Soccer Club’s players. The combination of Gooding Sports Group’s sage advice and contacts along with CSK Creative/floridavideographer.com’s expert sports filming will show coaches and scouts what these kids are made of and ultimately bring them to their perfect collegiate fit.
CSK Creative/floridavideographer.com has the capability to film any sporting event, whether it’s at ESPN Wide World of Sports or another venue. Here’s a list of sports we’ve filmed over the years:
