How to Film

  • Tape from a high perspective when possible (at least several feet from the ground). A tripod is highly recommended.
  • Do not zoom in and out. The wider the angle the better.
  • Imagine the field separated into thirds (offensive, middle, defensive). When the ball is in the offensive or defensive third of the field, film the entire 18-yard box and beyond. When the ball is in the middle of the field, film the entire middle third.
  • Show enough of the field so that we are able to see the player’s vision, runs with and without the ball, use of space, combinations with teammates, etc.
  • Coaches want to see the progression of each play so you need a wide enough angle to capture multiple players, but they also want to see foot skills and technical abilities so do not lose focus on the primary player you are recording.

When it comes to recruiting, Go Big or go home!
