We The Fans: Section 250 is an ESPN documentary series about Chicago Bears fans. Our contribution was to shoot the opening sequence that played before each episode.
Inspiration for the video came from Leonardo Delassandri’s Watchtower of Turkey video. The two aesthetics that influenced our approach were movement and transitions. Our gear list included a RigWheels car mount and Freefly Systems camera gimbal. As a result, the gear allowed us to film dynamic shots and smooth movement.
We kept in mind that the sequence was going to be a montage, and we filmed shots with reveals to provide natural transitions in editing.
The eight episode series aired on April 11, 2017 on ESPN. The series is also available via subscription on YouTube.
