During the Olympics I worked for Channel 9 and Foxtel (Australian broadcasting). I was lucky enough to have my camera to capture a couple of nights of unforgettable sport. The atmosphere in the stadium was electric. I wanted to create a video that slowed down the madness and lingered on the powerful emotions of the athletes and media.
I hope you find this footage gripping. Please leave feedback if you wish.
I shot the video with my Canon 550D and Sigma 18-200mm lens, (I tried especially hard to keep a steady hand when filming). I edited the video on FCPX on my 15inch Macbook Pro (Retina).
