2013 Highlight Video

November 7, 2013

Have you seen the 2013 highlight video yet? This is one of the projects that I look forward to tackling each year. It’s also one of the most difficult. Condensing a season’s worth of fantastic shots and moments into a 4-5 minute feature is a challenge. What makes the cut? Well, there are a few staples that I try to include each year:

  • players who won GAP Majors, as well as the Junior Boys’ and Senior Amateur champions
  • the Players of the Year (Junior, Senior, Super-Senior and William Hyndman, III)
  • a neat golf course scene (sunset at Fieldstone Golf Club, site of this year’s Middle-Amateur Championship, for example)
  • candid moments among players (fist pumps, caddie chats, hi-fives, etc.)

Music is also important. This year’s video features “World on Fire” by The Royal Concept and “Elevate” by St. Lucia. The video opens with rapid scenes from 2013 cut to match the beat of the music. Screens of James Kania, Jr. blowing a kiss and Joe Gunerman congratulating Christopher Crawford multiply to match the ending of “World on Fire.” Matching music with video is a must to me.

When we posted the video yesterday, it wasn’t accessible on mobile devices and tablets. We fixed that. You can watch the video here.

Enjoy, and thanks to all who made the 2013 season so memorable!
