I love when NFL Films mics up some of the league’s star players. It’s cool to hear the turmoil and fun and hard hits happening on the field. These guys at BLR (Bad Lip Reading) did an hilarious spoof of the conversations happening during games.
Last year, (Summer 2011) we teamed up with a local (Washington, DC) all women flag football league. We were asked to capture the skill, intensity and sorority of the league’s women on the field. Inspired by the awesome NFL Films “Mic’d Up” series of videos … we made the risky decision of using our body microphones to mic up the quarterbacks from either team.
It’s flag football and we don’t have the budget for lots of spare (and expensive) mics … so we asked the ladies to not to hit the floor while playing.
They didn’t listen.
But we got some good in-game commentary!
