Slack Jaw Productions Phoenix Pan Am 2002

New guys on the paintball video scene, Slackjaw productions entered the market with their tape of the 2002 Pan Am Circuit Phoenix, Arizona tournament.

With no ifs, ands or buts, this video is all about the game.  The tape starts out with a short music montage, and then jumps right in to game after game from the tournament.

Slackjaw set up on just one of the eventís fields with two camera towers and handheld cameras on the ground.  Using multiple cameras, they were able to edit the footage together to show not just the good moves, or highlights, but full games as they progressed, picking the best views from their choice of angles. 

A running clock at the top of the screen represents a game clock which is mostly accurate (occasionally the footage would be switched to out of sync slow motion to emphasize a great move made by a player) giving a real-time sense of the game.  It excellently documents the way each teamís strategy unfolds Ė when they push and how long they hold before each move. 

For the strategist, and especially teams playing the Pan Amís 5 man limited paint format, this is a powerful learning tool.  Also at the top of the screen along with the clock are head and shoulder icons which show how many players are still in play for each team.  Icons dissapear as players are eliminated.

Mismatched brightness and color between some of the cameras, tape dropouts (desert dust is very hard on video tape and gear), and dirt on the lens are distractions at points, but this tape does an outstanding job of documenting the games in a new way.
