I thought it would be cool to get a little creative for the first #MGBB Mix of the 2015-16 High School basketball season. The #MGBB Mix are highlight videos that I create of players around the Memphis area and post on www.MemphisGirlsBasketball.com. The highlights I create are about 2-4 minutes long. I really didn’t have an idea of how long this one would be but it came out to a little over 9 minutes.
So on November 7, I spent all day at the gyms of White Station and Arlington high schools recording footage from their play days. Because it was so much footage, it took me 2 weeks to edit. I had a general idea of what I wanted to create. Then of course, I had to make some adjustments to the ideas. It was a lot of work. A lot of long hours. However, I’m happy that I decided to try something different.
“The people that was laughing saw an ugly picture.. I saw something totally different.”
A few weeks ago, I posted a “not so good” sketch of an idea that I had for my MemphisGirlsBasketball.com site. I had posted the sketch on Facebook and so many people laughed at the sketch. But the funny thing is — The people that was laughing saw an ugly picture.. I saw something totally different.
Here is the sketch:
This is what I was visualizing as I was drawing the sketch. (These are two pictures that I took during my Fall Exposure League)
Since we are in the midst of the basketball early signing period, I decided to sign a National Letter of Intent to keep you informed (to the best of my ability) on what’s going on in Memphis Girls Basketball (at MemphisGirlsBasketball.com) by cranking out blog posts, pictures and highlight videos… Ha!!
