The series is going to be about the love of the game and the heights the game has taking players that I’ve met at York college, and how basketball (may include other sports) has helped them learn life lessons. As well as the platform that it has helped set for them. I chose this project for the fact that I am a student athlete and sometimes people assume that because you are that you have it made and there is no real essential talent that goes into it. There are people who play for fun and their are people who play or engage in these activities because it is more than just a game to them. I will want to portray what the game or chosen sport means to each player. For me it was always a form of therapy. Time frame 5-7 mins each.
The first thing i want to establish is the common setting and the connection between the people. In doing so i will do an opening shot of the Health and Physical Education Building of York College more so focusing on the building in its entirety and the scenic setting because the building is the main domain for student athletes and coaches. Each Talent will have a shot of them coming from different directions to the building.
The second thing i want to establish will be there connection to the sport which gives them common ground but their experiences will set them apart. In the sense i will have a coach and player aspect and also show their engagement with the sport and others while they interact with this sport. Will incorporate the interview segment in the body of their segment.
The closing structure is what I’m having trouble with i think i want the last scene to the talent in the gym by their selves with the ball as if in there own zone and a shot of the ball just bouncing and then rolling. Im not really sure though I’m open to feed back. Thanks in advance
