I wish I would've read the review before purchasing this video. The video quality is so bad it distracts from the teaching being done in the video. That should be something included in the description of the videos content. All of my other championship productions videos have been excellent, but I am definitely feeling buyers remorse with this one. There are some good drills and teaching of the game by Coach Alford but again the video quality is just so incredibly bad.
I give it a 2 because of the camera work. When it is from a distance and pans out over entire floor it is fuzzy like it is being shot through glass...there is often a counter in the bottom corner as well. When it goes to floor level it is clear and bright but you cant see as much. Very disappointed with the camera work on this one.Championship Productions replies:Coach, Thanks for the review. This video was shot at the Lobos practice facility. This facility did not have a place for us to perch a camera to get a good overhead shot of the floor. They use mounted, remote control cameras (more schools are going to this kind of system) to shoot their practices. So we used their overhead camera angle and one of our cameras for the floor footage. While this is not ideal, we felt it was superior to shooting everything from the floor. This overhead view provides the viewer with a good angle for seeing the action on the floor. Hope that helps!
