Fall media days serve as an opportunity to capture video and photo content utilized throughout the entire year. The focal point for this year's shoot was the LED video board, serving as a backdrop. Leading the animation direction, my task was to create a combination of multiple scenes without relocating or heavily altering the lighting setup, given the need to shoot with nearly 100 players. Three categories of animated backdrops were designed:
1) Tunnels and perspective to create the illusion of depth
2) A pulsating red backdrop that we could shoot directly against to create silhouettes 
3) Animated text tied with the city of Columbia, SC and the football team
With a variety of backdrop categories, we gain the ability to cut between shots of the same location without being overly repetitive, thus maximizing the lifespan of our footage throughout the year.
