My name is Shanawar Cheema and I am a senior at Etowah high school. This is my first year attending this school. I was in Kell High School for my freshmen, sophomore and my junior year. One of my biggest goals is to get to college and get my education done. One reason why I want to finish my education is because of my dad, he wants all of his kids to get as much education as they can. My dad couldn’t finish his education because his father died when he was in high school and he didn’t have enough money to finish it. My senior project is on sports cameramen and how they film at different angles to make it more viewer friendly or keep the interest of the viewers into the game.
My research paper’s topic is a sports cameraman. I researched about the first camera company which was Kodak and the founder of that company, his name is George Eastman Kodak. His company revolutionized the camera making industry and many companies came into being after the success of Kodak. I also researched one of the biggest leagues of soccer in the world which is UEFA (United European Football Association) and how they use as much as they can of their camera crew because the more cameras you have the more shots from different angles you will have, also I researched the quality of cameras. The past decade and so the picture quality of cameras has changed from 3d to 4k to Ultra HD and how cameras have changed from being a huge box made out of wood to a small camera like go pro. Go pros have become popular among athletes who want to have a closer look to themselves while playing or performing in the field.
My final product is an edited version of the two high school football games that I filmed during the whole senior project process. My final product relates to my senior project by showing that the type of camera, the number of cameras on the field, and how different camera angles can affect the interest of the viewers. I used a Panasonic dslr which is a low-quality camera, and I was the only one filming the game so the variety of shots are very limited. I am working on a limited budget and have access to low quality products so my shots are not that much high definition and they will not be viewer friendly to people who are really into sports. One of the obstacles that I faced during the entire process of my senior project was to make my product look perfect. The lack of resources and the quality of products did not help me a lot in creating my perfect product. To overcome that obstacle, I watched couple of YouTube videos and I also talked to my project facilitator which helped me to bring my final product a one step closer to perfection.
The demand of sports cameramen has increased over the years because of all the interest that sports has gathered from its viewers. The camera technology keeps on getting better and better because the sports industry wants to please their viewers with cool and extraordinary shots. One thing that I learned about myself is that I am a kind of a person who wants everything to be perfect but during the entire process I learned that nothing you get or do is perfect all you can do is come a step closer in being perfect. I want to go to Kennesaw state university and pursue a major audio and video tech. After graduating from college, I want to free-lance for a couple of years, so I can get the experience of the outdoors and hopefully some sports company hires me as a on field camera man
Camera quality and the quantity on the field really determines the variety of shots you are going to get while filming for a sports industry and to operate those there will always be a cameraman. Thank you for your time and considering my senior project.
