Spending The Night With ESPN

8 Feb 2016

 When the British Royal Couple Prince William and Kate Middleton came to NYC to catch a Nets game at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, ESPN was there to capture the moment. Afterwards, we were there to help assemble that moment into a SportsCenter segment. After leaving fully satisfied with the edit (what can we say, we love what we do) we were given another opportunity to create something similar, only this segment was more involved.


Welterweight fighters Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi interview with Rosie Perez before the fight.


And it's a good thing staff editor Derek, ESPN's Gustavo Coletti and Jenna Contreras got on so well, because they were in for a big job in a short amount of time.

"Editing with Gus and Jenna was a blast. The project was two-fold, so we knew we had to work smartly and quickly overnight to finish both segments in time. The segments highlighted Rosie Perez's interview of the two welterweight boxers Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi, before their big fight on ESPN. It was a lot of work, but we plowed through with surprising ease, and finished both pieces with plenty of time to make it to air. The shorter segment aired on ESPN's SportsCenter later that Friday afternoon, and the full 5 minute piece aired Saturday night during ESPN's PBC Boxing, just before the fight began." - Derek Brown, Nitrous editor | colorist

 

Projects like these make us glad our couches are so comfortable for our overnight guests.
