Game film, it is extremely important to coaches, but here at Roster Point, we make sure that game film is at the front and centre of your profile. Now, what does that mean for you? Well, you get to showcase clips of your best games, and naturally, I would hope they are the positive aspects. No matter if it is an amazing shot, or just simply a great defensive backcheck, game film is part of the reason that you are going to get to the next level. With that in mind, we are going to look at how to best film and edit that precious tape.

Filming

Look, we do not live in a world where your dad’s VHS tape recorder is going to work, and if you do not know what that is I have in fact dated myself. However, that does not mean you will need to drop thousands of dollars on a camera. Go Pro’s work great, and with the attachments that are possible you will absolutely love the great angles you will be able to get. Make sure that you are able to focus on one zone, this way you can showcase both your defensive and offensive game. Now hit record, and make sure that you have enough space on the memory card!

Editing

Editing is not fun, but it will allow you to splice the game up to better showcase your shifts, and add extras like circling yourself for scouts to easily find you. Editing software has gotten better over the years, but it will still cost you an arm and a leg if you want a quality program. As well, not all programs work on Mac and Windows, so do your research and start testing out some basic editing tips. YouTube and blogs will be a great place to pick up the basics!
