I got my first college press pass Friday, giving me access to the sidelines during the ‘Battle of the Bell’; OU’s rivalry game with the Marshall Thundering Herd.
Regardless of how pumped I was to be on the sideline, the Bobcats blew Marshall out of the water by nearly 40 points. It made for a really cool first game.
The actual reasoning behind me getting the “seats” that every Ozone (OHIO’s student section) kid wanted was that I was shooting video for The Post. Despite major camera issues and such I think I got a good experience out of the deal and have my foot in the door towards more similar opportunities in the future.
The only negative of the whole deal is that now I want to buy a better camera. I had total lens envy. My little baby Cannon can’t hold a match to any one of the photographers’ cameras that I saw the other night. On that same note, look for some stills to be uploaded soon as well.
In the end, the footage and editing was good, not great. If anyone knows someone looking to get rid of a good camera let me know. Life is good.
