After making a lot of presentations to schools/business/boards, etc where the people have a hard time “getting” the energy and excitement of a FIRST event, we decided to address this problem with our latest video. Meant for showing while “selling” FIRST to schools - trying to encourage the growth of new teams, that is - we really tried to capture the feeling of a competition, and I think our video editor did well.
Without further ado: here’s the video itself.
Of interest to you guys (and girls):
- 0:30 - 217 (Thunderchickens) performing a beautiful hurdle
- 0:50 - 148 sped up… but only a little. Very fast robot there.
- Fredbird (yes, the mascot of the St. Louis Cardinals) appears throughout, joining the team mascots and FIRST judges in some harmless fun
- 1:35 - Andy Baker doing the infamous trackball dive
What do you think? Does the video perform it’s job well? Comments, suggestions, compliments all welcome.
