We wanted to create a quick blog that gives you a good idea about what happens on the day, when you choose to film with us. This means you know what to expect and you understand what kind of process is involved. So, let’s get stuck into it.
The Pre-Game Prep
Before the first whistle blows, the WD Sportz team engages in thorough pre-game preparations. The first thing, is to transport all the equipment to the stadium or venue. Prior to this even, we will have spoke to the team we are filming for to arrange the date, time and location. We will then get to the game, set up our equipment and do checks on these.
Strategic Camera Placement
Positioning is everything when it comes to capturing the heart-stopping moments of a game. WD Sportz employs a strategic approach to camera placement, utilising a combination of fixed cameras for wide-angle shots and handheld devices for dynamic, close-up action. The goal is to create a full view of the game, getting all the amazing moments on film. Once we are all set up, we can begin to capture some pre-game content such as warm ups, team talks, cross bar challenges and more.
WD Sportz stays at the forefront of technological innovation to deliver top-notch game footage. High-definition cameras with advanced zoom capabilities capture every part of the game, from the intensity of a penalty kick to the jubilation of a last-second goal. We also use wide-lensed cameras as well as camera poles to get a birds eye view of the match from start to finish.
Live Streaming Magic
In some games, we will also use our network of over 15,000 people to LIVE stream on TikTok or YouTube. This not only shows our capabilities but also gives a shoutout to the teams we are filming for. Feel free to check out our Insta, TikTok or YouTube on @wdsportz
Once the final whistle blows, the real magic begins in the editing room. WD Sportz editors meticulously sift through footage, selecting the best moments to craft a fully edited match highlights piece as well as several clips for social media. You will also receive a whole match film which you can use for keepsake or match analysis.
Fan Engagement and Social Media:
Once we’ve been to the game, filmed and edited, we will offer you the chance to be the first to post anything on social media. We will then use our own content to post on our socials. This helps us build our audience and showcase what we do too. We will often tag the teams and leagues involved.
