I had a fun time capturing the excitement of banked track roller derby and everything went off without a hitch (okay there were a couple, but had nothing to do with us. Promise.). The days were long and it really taxed my mind as I had to manage multiple cameras, a switcher, announcing talent and replay. I think I have a new threshold for mental toughness.
Overall, it feels good to play a part in capturing the early days in a sport that will only grow more and more popular as time passes. Those junior derby games were amazing. Plus, I got to meet a bunch of really cool people to add to my ever expanding roller derby network.
