Sportsnet Countdown

Working with my friends at Gleam Media, I’ve been hired to on-line the series that countsdown the top 25 whatevers! It’s cool, fast and there are a lot of shimmies and shakes to apply to each show. I’m also in charge of cutting the intro montage for each episode. Here's one of the intros for the show...

We've just wrapped the 2nd season of SportsNet Countdown and the workflow for this show is pretty smooth at this point.
It starts on set as stand-ups are shot and delivered to our editor. The show is edited in PPro. The PPro project file is sent to me via Dropbox.  All lower thirds are created and delivered to me and as I get the footage on a hard drive or through a download and I open up the project relink everything... I then go to town on the on-line.  Add the requisite flashes, shimmies and shakes... a little colour here and there, cut an intro and then send off an OMF to our sound guy.
The mix comes back, I throw it in, render it off then create an international version and deliver both to the end client, go to lunch at Boston Pizza and see the show on 28 screens over some shrimp tacos or a perrogie pizza.

In case you missed it, last weekend was the CIS Championship Weekend and Rogers Sportsnet covered and broadcast a lot of it. I was brought in by Gleam Media to help create some player and coach profiles that were played throughout the weekend coverage. It was a fun bunch of videos to help create, cause I do dig my sports…
