Football | Recommended Recording Workflow
Check out these recording tips to ensure you get the best Assist breakdowns possible.
How to record
- Use high-definition, if possible.
- Include audio in your recording — it helps analysts break down your game.
- If a telephoto lens is available, attach it to your camera to improve film quality.
- Keep things in focus — analysts can’t tag what they can’t see.
What to record
- Capture down markers on every play.
- Catch the scoreboard often, at least after every quarter and preferably after every scoring drive.
Where to record
- Align your camera or iPad with the center of the field.
- Find a vantage point that clearly shows all players.
- Capture the entire field — try to avoid zooming in/out.
- Limit potential obstructions to the camera, e.g., fans or other equipment.
Was your game rejected? Here’s why
- You submitted a scrimmage that didn’t follow the rules of the game.
- The plays weren’t in order.
- The plays submitted were only for one side of the ball.
- There weren’t yard lines, or the yard lines weren’t marked clearly.
- Yard lines were only drawn every 10 yards.
- The game was only recorded from an end zone angle.
If an analyst isn’t able to break down a game, we’ll return it to the coaches so they can upload a new copy. The original turnaround time won’t be guaranteed.
