    So cool to see this!
    Can never get enough pinball talk.
    Also has anyone seen the world record for one handed play on BSD? It’s that Stamm guy.

    Great Video!

    I think a great way to add a more personal aspect to the tournament play is to have another camera showing the player as well as the top down camera view. These players can be quite animated while playing and that definitely would make watching a video more fun. Maybe like a split screen deal?

    ^^^^ seconded! I think the opportunities to see some great “drain faces” are being missed. As mentioned in the interviews – actually seeing the players attached to the names on the screen would add a significant “human element” to the whole thing. You’d get more familiar with the people you’re watching. Plus . . . more editing work for MHS!!

    Interviews of top players would be great to spice up the PAPA vids.
    Bowen’s got it right: at the end of the day it’s not so much about the game as it is about who’s playing it.

    We’re going to need some ways to make the editing EASIER on MHS, while somehow adding interviews and alternate camera angles.

    That sounds difficult.

    Editing an hour long video is a pain in the ass.
    It takes skill to make the content look as professional as the PAPA standard we’ve come to expect, it’s a very lengthy process and it requires a powerful PC and solid knowledge of the editing software.

    @ Bowen

    It’s almost as if you have something in mind ;o)

    Doesn’t ESPN 8 have the technology to edit the videos?

    Great interview.

      Glasses look bad in laptop glare, but also help people see.

    If it’s ever on TV you need a sexy girl like Sara Underwood to do the player interviews.

    Also it would need to be turned around a lot faster. No one (other than us!) is gonna tune in to watch last year’s tournament, they want to see it live or at least a tournament from the last week.

    Interesting ideas. I have no idea who Sara Underwood is. We don’t have the capacity or materials to produce a live broadcast right now, and a one-week turnaround time for production would be even more difficult than live broadcast.
