How To Use Game Film
Why do you need video and what do you do with it?
The purpose of purchasing film is to use it for the college recruiting process. Players should start compiling a library of game footage in preparation to create a highlight reel. When contacting a college coach, one of the first things they'll ask for is to see your highlights. Other benefits of having film are to review your game play, show friends and family, and share on social media.
"Film from First Scout has been an essential investment. When it came time to begin contacting college coaches, we were ready with high quality, professional footage. We will look for you at future tournaments!” Laura Wooten - Parent
"First Scout Team is extremely professional and very responsive. They have a very experienced team who know the impact a strong highlight reel can have in the recruiting process. They know best length of time for your reel, and what coaches are looking for as they choose their clips. I would definitely recommend First Scout for your next reel." Julie Rosga - Parent
“We highly recommend First Scout Productions. We tried another sports video company because they were less expensive and were disappointed by both the service and results. First Scout helped our son get recruited by many colleges and universities for lacrosse.” Kristin Patrican - Parent
How does film help me get recruited?Film, specifically an edited highlight reel, is a powerful tool in the modern recruiting process. It showcases your BEST plays from a potentially vast amount of material and efficiently allows college coaches to see what you're capable of. Film is not the end all be all in the recruiting process as there are many other variables involved, but there's NO DOUBT that it's become a necessity in modern recruiting. "My son was fortunate enough to be contacted by 53 college coaches and every one of the coaches requested film.” - First Scout Customer. Coaches will ask you for film. What will you send them?
Why do college coaches use film?Plain and simple it increases exposure during the recruiting process. Coaches have limited time and budgets to view high school players. They are limited by NCAA regulations as to the amount of communication they can have with a player and are even subject to blackout periods where they cannot view tournaments or programs. During these periods they watch footage - more specifically, highlight reels of players, a compilation of their best overall plays from multiple games only a couple of minutes in length, approximately 15-20 plays total. At tournaments, there are only so many athletes a coach can see and often the coach’s assistants are sent to help with scouting. The coach’s assistant will take notes on players and report back to the coach. Having the ability to compare notes with actual game footage, or better yet, a highlight reel, is crucial in the recruiting process.
Can I edit the film myself?All of our videos are fully editable and delivered in either a .MOV file or a .MP4 file format with an H.264 Codec. Full game downloads (only available with multi-user licensed packages) will be delivered as a .MP4 file. All clips generated and downloading from game film will be delivered as .MOV files
Can I download the film?The way you download your video depends on the license you purchased. With a Team Package you get multi-user license meaning you can watch it streaming online anytime, download the full game file at once, or use our online clipping tool to splice out your athletes specific clips and download just those. With our single-user license you can only use the clipping tool and watch the game streaming. All cut up clips can be used in any editing software and in no way stops you from creating a highlight reel of the athlete. All games remain on our systems indefinitely and can be cut up or watched anytime.
