CFOA - Derder Style
By Bill Mills - Nov 2004
Photos captured from The CFOA Experience


In a few short years the Carolina Field Owner’s Association has grown into one of the most prominent regional paintball tournament series in the US.  Derder Productions out of San Diego, California headed east to show the rest of the country what promoters Larry Motes, Jon Morell, Rob Staudinger and Josh Silverman have been up to.

Derder wrapped up highlights from four CFOA competitions – Easley, Atlanta, China Grove and Greensboro, in a single DVD – The CFOA Experience.  

Like their other DVDs, The CFOA Experience does not feature game-by-game coverage of the competition.  Instead, it takes the fastest, most action packed, or funniest shots they captured, and sets them to fast paced tunes, as music videos.  This makes the DVD as well suited to run in the background at a paintball shop or indoor field as in a living room with a bowl of popcorn.  

As with their other productions, Derder shot The CFOA Experience right on the field edge, with 3 chip professional cameras that were handheld, giving a feel of being in the middle of the action.  

This DVD was also shot at a high shutter speed with progressive scan, something that is becoming a trend in extreme sports videography.  While this techno jargon may not mean much to the average viewer, the effect is fast action becomes a little more jumpy, like footage shot on motion picture film, but freeze frames are much sharper and more detailed.  Pause button and slo-mo junkies can crawl through the goggle shots and see every detail of the exploding paintballs. 

Nine songs provide an introduction to the DVD, two chapters from Easley, two from Atlanta, two from China Grove, and one from Greensboro.  The Bloopers reel provides laugh out loud entertainment with a collection of trips, falls, players shooting their own team-mates, and all the other things that can go wrong during a game.

Featured artists include Bouncing Souls, Love Me Destroyer, The Gambits, The Fairlanes, The Teeth, Homemade, Bombshell Rocks, and Stereotyperider.

In all the DVD holds over 30 minutes of CFOA action, with an additional trailer promoting Roadkill: the Derder US Tour, a DVD packed with action from eight US events in 2004.  The DVD carries a parental warning for strong language, as a few players drop the F-Bomb and a couple of other choice words, though these are few and far between.
