03/17/17 – Cineasta Digital recently had the chance to team up with the producers at the Pac12 Network to produce a fun little feature on number #2 ranked 135lb wrestler, Joey McKenna, a Stanford sophomore looking to make a statement in the NCAA National Championship competition.
The Cineasta crew spent the day with Joey, on campus, hanging with his team mates and through a grueling practice led by head coach, Jason Borelli. The feature was shot utilizing the both the Sony FS7 and FS700, as well as some gimbal work with the DJI Ronin. With the work Cineasta Digital has done with MMA, this was an easy transition to the wrestling mat to capture a day in the life of a collegiate wrestler.
This piece aired on the Pac12 Network during the championship weekend, this year held at Stanford University. Joey and many other Pac12 athletes will go on to compete at nationals in St. Louis in late March. Big thanks to the Pac12 Network for bringing us on board to produce this feature.
