FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does my team need video?
Video is one of the most important learning tools for student athletes & coaches. By having video of your games you will be able to learn from the good plays & bad to prepare for the next game.
Why does my son or daughter need video for college?
If your son or daughter wants to play at the collegiate level then you should start gathering Game Film & creating a Player Highlight Reel as early as Freshman Year. Scouts want to see the progression of the player's gameplay over the years to see what type of athlete your son or daughter has become. Start the process early so you don't have to scramble senior year.
Can I use footage not filmed by you in my highlight reels?
Absolutely! We are completely capable of piecing together footage from any type of video file or video link provided to our editing team.
Do you zoom in on one player when filming for a player highlight reel?
Most of our games are filmed for coaching purposes so they are filmed from a wider angle and following the action. We can however film just your son or daughter if that is what is needed. From our Game Film that we film for coaching purposes we are completely capable of pulling highlights from this footage as well.
Is the footage editable?
All of our footage is delivered in a .MOV or .MP4 format which is editable.
How do I submit plays for a highlight reel?
When submitting plays from a video that is online please provide us the following in an email.

My team needs to review the footage right after the game. Can you upload to our hudl account or give us the footage directly after the game?
Game Film Pros can provide an SD card and give it to the coach directly after the game. Each additional game we film the coach or client is responsible for bringing that SD card to each game. We will not film using a teams or schools SD card due to issues that are not controllable on our end. We can upload to Hudl, Vimeo, or Dropbox. This ensures a very fast and fluid turnaround.
Do we need to contact your videographer before game time?
Nope, our videographer will have all the information provided by you before game time. They will set up at least 20 minutes early and blend in with the crowd.
