Shooting sports video is as exciting as the event that you are filming. However, each sport or venue calls for a different approach. Shooting for one player or team can also change your focus or how the audience views your project.
Typically you should use a type of camera that can film a large scene at a time. Sports field are much larger then a stage or a room in a house, so you should be able to film the whole sports arena in one shot if you have access to a camera that lets you.
Getting an interview with players on the teams is also a great idea when trying to make a sports video. Hearing their side of the story is a great way to connect with the audience and getting both sides is an ever better way to share the game you just filmed.
