Director's Notes

Home "Baseball"

Shot Structure

My approach is to build a miniature story out of all these vignettes. It'll be a nice thing to have even if we don't go that route for final delivery. An example for the home page would be a sequence of 4 shots that play out like this. 

  1. "Sliding into Home Base" Top down shot of kid sliding into home base. Dust and dirt flying in slow motion...
  2. "Team Celebration" Our "hero" kids celebrating together. 
  3. "Family Celebration Segue" Kid running towards family I see this being a silhouette shot into sun
  4. "Family Celebration" This scene will be my main focus. I will make sure we have multiple options from wide to close here.

Scene 2: I want to create visuals that look good in slow motion. Adding a flying particulate such as liquid , dust or dirt will add visual interest to these shots. Here is an example of  the boys spraying a beverage. Dumping the Gatorade cooler on the coach is always a classic.

Alt Scene 2: This could also be accomplished by the kids throwing their gloves in the air full of dust and dirt.

NEW Home page idea

Here is a completely new idea for the home page for your consideration. Water looks amazing in slow motion. It's actually easier to feature family too. This could be shot at a waterpark, public fountain, or even in the backyard. Let me know what you think.
