I didn't spend much time in them. They were neat, but I'm not sure that they added much value for me. I really like the extras that you find in the MSDGC videos [Top Drives, Top Putts, Bloopers] and it would be really cool if you could get some interviews or other non-golfing footage of the players. I have no idea if any of that stuff is reasonable, but that's something I would find very cool in an Bonus Feature section.

I very much look forward to it. I love the way you followed a single group shot for shot. That's the most frustrating thing I found watching other videos is that they skip over a whole lot of shots and jump between cards which can be confusing if you don't know the players really well.


Have you watched Avery Jenkins filmed by two slow motion cameras simultaneously from two angles? For learning throwing form and comparing to yourself. The other players from single angles are great contrast for comparison. You can learn a lot by watching top players. We have done quick interviews of some players and they should be included in future releases. We wanted to let more people know more players. Especially European players getting better recognized all over the world. Americans are better known all around. So far we haven't done any in depth interviews except one that is half way there. Check out:

On the channel lcgm8 at Youtube we have two shorter segments of Finnish players being interviewed during Finnish Open 2010. There are many more shorter introductory interviews from The Scandinavian Open 2010 that are as of yet unreleased. Then there's this goody:

So rest assured we have talked to many players in front of cameras and interviews are coming up.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Yeah, I've studied lots of the slow motion drives before when working on my own form. It was definitely cool being able to compare the different techniques.

Love that interview! I'd like to see tons more of those, it makes it more fun to watch them play when you know a little more about their personality. What I'd really love to see is a final round with an audio track narrated by the players on the card. Obviously, this would be a huge undertaking and the if the players would do it they probably wouldn't even remember half of what they were thinking by the time you were ready to record the audio, but that would be awesome as a spectator to hear what they were thinking when they make certain decisions. I would love to hear Avery respond to hitting the barrier the second time on the Day two footage. :)

The Clash series and some USDGC vids have commentary by players or other players who know their competitors well. I don't know what the Finnish Open 2010 commentary will include but i'm not the commentator on that. The same goes for the Scandinavian Open 2010 Swedish and English narration. Still it may not be as much about what the players thought. Although the commentators know their stuff. I haven't heard what has been recorded so i absolutely no idea about the content of the narration.

Hi, JR -

I found a listing of some community access TV stations in Finland, and am wondering if you guys in the Mafia have looked into what you might be able to take advantage of locally, broadcast-wise. Here's the link:

I didn't see an English translation, but it might be possible for you guys to submit some of your work for broadcast. Check it out if you get a chance.

Take care,

Joe

They are very local stations and at least one of them is shown in my home town and the neighboring towns that have about a fifth of the population of Finland covered. So we'll have to see what we can see :-)
