Fenway Park ballhawking video

Do you remember the videographer that I hired to film me snagging my 6,000th ball on 6/8/12 at Fenway Park? Well, after a couple rounds of edits, the video is now complete. Here it is:

By the way, the videographer’s name is Adam “Ace” Spencer, and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs stuff filmed. He was reliable and fun to work with, and he totally understood my vision. I wonder if he’s willing to travel with me to other stadiums . . .

    congrats on your milestone. too bad you can’t have a video guy there all the time, i so like the vibe.

    You should do these videos all the time! They’re awesome! Congrats again on the milestone. I like Jhonathan Solano. He threw me a couple baseballs out of random when he was with Triple-A Syracuse. Hes a cool guy.

    Are you going to any Orioles games this year? And whats the best way to get a ball at Camden Yards?

    Nice. Kim and I are so close to being in the Paula Abdul scene–we’re about 4 seats out of the frame at the top left, in loge 119, row EE. And I know I was there at that moment because I was taking pics of Abdul with Wally and never left my seat the whole game anyway. Maybe I’ll be in the Criterion Collection version.

    I’d love to have a videographer with me at every game, but damn, can you imagine how expensive that’d be?

    “All the time” is a bit much, but hopefully I’ll do a bunch a more.

    The audio is fine on my laptop. Hmm. Is anyone else having that problem?

    I hope to make it to Camden at least once or twice in 2012, but right now I have no idea when that’ll happen. Meanwhile, the best way to snag baseballs there is to read my old entries about that stadium. You can find a bunch here:

    I wish.

    Sorry you missed the cut. Next time . . .

    Love that video. I had to laugh when some guy said, “That’s his 5th ball already.” People were complaining at Fenway when I had 3!

    Yes to Yankee Stadium. No to the Classic.

    It was rather amusing. They weren’t pissed at me — just shocked.

    I haven’t even looked that far ahead on the schedule, but that’s not a bad idea.

    How much would you charge, and are you good at filming/editing?
