Lacrosse Films: “Iroquois Lacrosse” Documents The Political Impasse On Visas Faced By The Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team During The Summer Of 2010 (Video)


This piece, “Iroquois Lacrosse” took 2nd place in the news category for Panasonic’s ‘Shoot It. Share It.’ contest. Here is a note from the filmmaker:

“This summer, the 2010 FIL World Lacrosse Championships were missing one team that made all the difference. The founders of the sport were held out of the competition due to politics. This story produced for US Lacrosse shared a small piece of the good that came out of a bad situation. Shot on a Panasonic-HMC150, the high quality HD footage made for great visuals in covering a fast-paced sport. Traveling light was a major key to success on this project. The best part was being able to use SD cards to capture 2-hour long games plus interviews without having to swap out. Using this effective camera and capture cards enabled quick turn-around for producing news stories each day on this 10-day international assignment.”

“There are no easy games in our 2011 schedule,” Kelly said. “We graduated half of our starting lineup, and we play several Top 20 teams as well as a number of teams that won their conference championships last year.  I think the 2011 squad will be challenged from start to finish, and I hope that our tough out-of-conference schedule will help to prepare us to face our MPSF opponents.”
