Basketball Fantasy: Shoot the winning basket

Posted on Updated on

The crowd is going wild. The cheerleaders are pumped. Brian coolly dribbles in, shoots and sinks the winning basket.

Brought to you through the magic of a green screen.

Members of Lifestyles Media Department traveled to New Dorp  to join the high school students at Staten Island Tech for some cool sessions in their TV studio.

In addition to a control booth and three video cameras, the studio is equipped with a green screen. The creative juices were flowing with all the possible visual effects provided by the digital backdrop.

For Brian, that meant hearing the roar of the crowd as he launched the game winning shot.

PHOTOGRAPHY “MOTXILA 21” -PAMPLONA

Mila Barricarte and Daniel Muñoz told us about us their experience:

On Thursday, March 23, Mila and Daniel went to photograph Motxila 21 [a band from Pamplona that includes many musicians with Down Syndrome]. “We arrived at 7 a.m. They rehearsed in the district of La Chantrea. Roberto and María José were waiting for us. ” On entering, Daniel says he saw several soccer buddies and Mila who noticed that there were many instruments (drums, a bass drum, a drums, a bass …) and photos of the group: “it was a very cool place.” Daniel also told us: “We were a little nervous, because it was the first time we photographed people we do not know. They played several songs while we took pictures of them. ” Mila says that the camera did not work well, that it tried to shoot but it did not obtain it. Daniel did not dare to approach so many people and so many cables. “We took several photos and stayed for a while to listen as they played. In the end they took a picture of us all together. We had a great time and we would like to repeat. ”

Many thanks to the components of Motxila 21 for giving us the opportunity to photograph them and make us a gap in their calendar that we know they have very tight.

FOTOGRAFIAMOS A “MOTXILA 21”

Mila Barricarte y Daniel Muñoz nos cuentan su experiencia:

El jueves 23 de marzo, Mila y Daniel fueron a fotografiar a Motxila 21 [una banda de Pamplona que incluye a muchos músicos con síndrome de Down].  Quedamos a las 7. Ensayaban en un local de la Chantrea. Allí nos esperaban Roberto y María José”. Al entrar, Daniel dice que vio a varios compañeros de fútbol y Mila que se fijó en que había muchos instrumentos (tambores, un bombo, una batería, un contrabajo…) y fotos del grupo: “era un sitio muy chulo”. Daniel también nos contó: “Estabamos un poco nerviosos, porque era la primera vez que fotografiábamos a personas que no conocemos. Tocaron varias canciones mientras les hacíamos fotos”. Mila cuenta que la cámara no funcionaba bien, que intentaba disparar pero no lo conseguía. Daniel no se atrevía a acercarse con tanta gente y tantos cables. “Hicimos varias fotos y nos quedamos un rato a escuchar como tocaban. Al final nos hicieron una foto a todos juntos. Lo pasamos muy bien y nos gustaría repetir”.

Muchas gracias a los componentes de Motxila 21 por darnos la oportunidad de fotografiarles y hacernos un hueco en su calendario que sabemos lo tienen muy apretado.

Meredith Arout chose to “attend” a concert of R5, her all-time favorite band.

“I didn’t really know what I was going to do ahead of time, but I have been to an R5 concert so I know what it was like,” said Meredith.

She looks right at home dancing on stage.

“It was funny when I ran off the stage,” she laughed.

Was she nervous about being “on stage.”

“No. I was excited,” she beamed.
