“Dad wanted to show the game the way Hollywood portrayed fiction, and that is, with a dramatic flair,” adds his son, Steve.
Once upon a time, Ed, 87, held a world swimming record and served his country in World War II. But he found himself selling topcoats at his father in law’s factory. And Authenitc Deandre Levy jersey Big Ed, as he’s known, wasn’t happy.
“In fact, I used to tell my wife all the time it was like going to the dentist every morning,” says Ed.
“I was doing quite well. And it wasn’t the Authenitc Womens C.J.Mosley jersey money. It was the fact that I was not happy doing what I was doing, and my hobbies all my life were sports Mens George Johnson jersey and photography. And I said, ‘If I ever get another job, or go into business, it’s gonna be something that I like, that I wanna get up in the morning and enjoy it.’”
The epiphany came when Ed got hold of a 16 millimeter movie camera. “I shot everything that moved,” he says. “I have more movies of my wife getting in and out of an automobile than you can believe. Out and in of the automobile was my favorite.”
Actually, his Elite Blue Barry Sanders jersey favorite was filming his son Steve’s football games. And he was very good at it.
“After the games Kids Dan Orlovsky jersey were played, dad would get the film processed. And then the coaches would come back to our house,” recalls Steve. “And I was in fourth grade, and they’d sit around and my mom would serve pretzels and apple cider and beer. And they would watch the films of this fourth Elite Kids George Johnson jersey grade football team playing games.”
By 1962, Big Ed had his own little film company, Blair Motion Pictures, named after his daughter. And he approached NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle with a $3,000 bid for Haloti Ngata jersey the rights to film the league’s championship game.
“I wanted it badly. I had to have it, and wasn’t gonna let $1,000 or $2,000 stand in the way,” says Ed.
He got it. But he got more than he bargained for. The game in New York between the Packers and Giants was played on one of the coldest days of the year.
“The film started breaking, you know? It was getting so brittle,” says Ed.
“We had cameramen with frostbite. And dad was so nervous, he had diarrhea,” adds Steve. “So he didn’t see much of the game.”
Ed admits he spent more time in the men’s Elite Dan Orlovsky jersey room than he did on the sidelines because he was nervous about making it a success.
Despite all the mishaps and hardships, the league was so pleased with the film that it decided to Elite Womens Deandre Levy jersey buy Big Kids C.J.Mosley jersey Ed’s little company. But there was a catch: they wanted him to produce films for every team in the league.
“That was very important. That was No. 1,” says Ed. “You must supply each team with a half hour film of their season Youth Haloti Elite Womens Barry Sanders jersey Ngata jersey highlights. And we gotta get them quickly. I just said, ‘I’ve gotta go out and get some guys.’ We went out and hired cameramen in each city Elite Kids Deandre Levy jersey and school teachers, Authenitc Kids George Johnson jersey or gym teachers doctors, guys who it was their hobby I had to get it done.”
And he did. But some of the early results were less than Authenitc Mens Deandre Levy jersey artistic.
“When I look at that screen, and it was fuzzy, or it was too light or overexposed, I couldn’t stand it. It used to make my stomach turn,” says Ed. Gradually, the style of NFL Films evolved.
Rule Elite Womens C.J.Mosley jersey No. 1: Shoot film Authenitc Youth C.J.Mosley jersey and only film, even though it costs much more than videotape. To connoisseurs, it is the difference between an oil painting and a print.
“We’re storytellers; we’re romanticists. If ‘Lord of the Rings’ Authenitc Kids Dan Orlovsky jersey had been shot on videotape, it wouldn’t have the same sense of wonder, of majesty, of magic about it,” says Steve. “We’re historians, we’re storytellers, we’re mythmakers. We’ll always stay on film.”
Rule No. 2: Have at least one camera shoot the action entirely in slow motion, even though it consumes more film and costs more money. That rule turned brutality into ballet.
“The whole game, every play, we’re gonna shoot in slow motion. I said, ‘I don’t care what it costs. If we get two great plays that they never saw before, it’ll open their eyes,’” says Ed. “You remember the quality long after you forget the price. Of anything. And the quality always comes first.”
“Dad always said, ‘Let the film run like water. Let the film run like water,’” adds Steve.
Rule No. 3: Don’t ignore the sound. They put microphones on coaches and players, many of whom seem to speak English as a second language.
Rule No. 4: Use the voice of God to narrate the films, which they did when they hired a local Elite Blue C.J.Mosley jersey newsman named John Facenda. “He could make a laundry list sound like the Constitution of the United States,” says Ed.
“Dad always had the great saying about Facenda. He said that if the Last Supper ever had an after dinner speaker, it would be John Facenda,” adds Steve, laughing. “He had this great oaken voice. He was the Walter Cronkite of Philadelphia. And I remember the first script I ever wrote for him.
a collection of political cartoons on the economy.] The incident has rightly produced a host of denunciations of the NFL’s Women Tyler Ennis Jersey hazing culture and the influence it may have had in prompting Incognito to act as he did. “I think the NFL in Youth Tyler Ennis Jersey the same Elite Ryan Oreilly Jersey way it banned all bounties after the New Orleans Saints’ scandal must think about banning anything that Kid Derek Roy Jersey Elite Ryan Oreilly Jersey reeks Authentic Gold Zemgus Girgensons Jersey of hazing. Just because this tradition has been handed down doesn’t make it smart, or right,” wrote Sports Illustrated’s Peter King. But the Dolphins case has also provided a stark reminder that bullying is not something isolated to the Authentic Blue Tyler Ennis Jersey playground Authentic White Ryan Oreilly Jersey or a middle school cafeteria. According to the Workplace Bullying Institute, some 35 percent of Americans have experienced bullying on the job, with another 15 percent reporting that they witnessed others being bullied. The majority of that bullying is same gender harassment, the Institute found, “which is mostly legal according to anti discrimination laws and workplace policies.”
what is happening to pro ballers but you can say they at least got paid millions. But what about all the kids who never get there but had to sustain all the trauma? Yes, Authentic Blue Evander Kane Jersey there always a chance of a concussion in many sports. My daughter does gymnastics, so I aware of the risks. But football, that a given for each play. Like I stated, I really do enjoy the game. But something has to change. Your concern is well taken. There is a reason why the NFL has Men Pierre Turgeon Jersey the lawfuit issues it does over concussions. Even at the high school and Pop Warner levels, there can be serious accidents resulting in head injuries. I not opposed to sports either, but as a safety consultant working in and around the insurance industry for 35 years (before retiring), I read too many claims reports coming from head injuries, usually in football. At the same time, we can take some comfort in the fact that the helmet manufacturers hav devoted considerable dollars and research to helmet design. It is pretty amazing actually, but
