I was hired to turn my camera towards Zach Parise signing autographs for almost 1,000 wild fans at a Total Hockey store in Edina. The scene was full of energy, a bit chaotic at times, but truly a memorable experience. Just like his skills as a hockey player, Zach is awesome off the ice too. He made the day (week/month/year) of so many fans — it was so much fun to see the reactions.
Before Zach went out into the crowd, I staged a spot for him to do an interview, mic’d him up and recorded a two camera interview with the hockey star.
“On several occasions now, my company has contracted out Mr. Deery and his crew for various video assignments. Their equipment is high quality and their work speaks for itself. Every camera operator exhibited a keen awareness of, and appreciation for, their environment, the subjects, and the moments they were capturing. It is clear that they have “filmmaker instincts” and an eye for composition. In addition, they were very professional and quick to respond.”
