Starting September, Fantag -- a pioneer in mobile video technology -- will be rolling out a new video experience at sports events in Northern California. We’re now in the process of training students to take part in that roll out as videographers -- what we informally call fantographers -- at these events, which will include high school and pro games at a number of NorCal venues. If you are a high-school student -- or know a student who might be interested -- please refer to the Fantag Videographer Academy (FVA) registration page.
This is a big moment for sporting events, and we are excited that students will be a part of this.
Three reasons why:
A cool new skill with great value. This is an opportunity to learn a cool new skill that students can begin using in the Fall. But the value extends beyond that. As a graduate of this one-hour training -- conducted via the Web -- students will be certified, and potentially eligible to cover games at other Fantag-ready events, both school and pro sports events. No experience necessary. If you have ever used a smartphone to record a live experience, you are already halfway there.
The best kind of training. Led by Fantag CEO Brian Dombrowski -- who got his first pro experience as a high schooler, supporting the videography team at the NHL's San Jose Sharks -- the training will cover not just the basics of covering a live event, but tips and tricks of the trade that students will want to hear about as they begin applying what they learn. Most trainings will be 1:1, with an opportunity to follow up with Brian at games this Fall (depending on schedules). It’s a rare opportunity to learn from someone “who’s been there” and who is now taking sports videography to higher level.
A breakthrough technology.Best of all, this is an opportunity to be part of the roll out of a technology may be poised to change the way live events are experienced. Fantag enables sports videographers and their teams to build big audiences by making it easy for their fans to capture, relive, and share their favorite moments with a simple tap of a button on their apps … without having to record the video themselves. As a videographer at these games, you will be part of a crew helping to capture the video for fans, from multiple angles.
Never before have videographers and their teams been able to do this. And never before have fans had this experience. Become a member of the first class of Fantag videographers, and help us make history. Sign up for a training today.
