Sports Days Videos

During the annual school sports day, my job is to supervise a team of student and record the events. As is the case with a lot of school functions, videos are recorded and photographed and then stored. No one is actually responsible for creating videos. When I could find the time, I would work with the footage shot by my team. Here are some of the videos we produced.

Sports Day SFX (May 2009)

This is an three-minute video featuring different special effects made using Adobe AfterEffects.  I created this video so that I could how to use  this software programme. The footage is our school’s sports day, which was held on 16-17 October 2008. I would like to thank the athletes and camera operators. Without your effort, this video would not have been possible.

I produced the music using Sonar Home Studio. The first song is mainly a loop-based composition (with loops from Sound Pool, Music Tech and CM) with some parts added via keyboard (Korg MicroX). The second song was mainly recorded using the keyboard along with some percussion/drum loops. Sony Vegaw was used for the old film effect and Photoshop was used to adapt some of the images. The robot was animated using iClone3. The explosions and fire videos are from
