Get Ya New York Sports Here!

For three stars, I chose to do the Sports Mashup Assignment. This assignment called for creating a compilation of great sports within a theme. As an “avid New York sports fan”, I chose to do a New York theme for the montage, and layered Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind over it. The process was fairly simple, as I had plenty of moments in mind, and the brunt of the work was searching through youtube for the best quality videos. After I selected the clips I used Keepvid to download the files to my computer. Once I had all the files I used iMovie to trim and edit the clips. Here’s a screenshot of my screen during the editing process:

One aspect of the final project I am a bit disappointed in is the quality of some of the videos. Several of them were very fuzzy, and I think it took away from the overall quality of the compilation. Anyway, here is the final product.
