When I was 15 years old, there was no Youtube. The only central location I knew about for finding interesting videos was Kazaa. That’s where I found this:
If you know anything about the history of sports, you’ll definitely want to watch it. It’s kinda slow for the first minute, but trust me, the whole thing is awesome.
ESPN’s “Images of the Century” catalyzed my interest in video editing. I must have watched it 100 times back in high school. I remember showing it to several of my friends, and being amazed that this video could give all of us goosebumps. It was the first time I became consciously aware of how powerful images were when combined with the right music, and how pacing and transitions could rapidly seize a person’s attention and put them in a trance.
I owe a lot to whoever edited “Images of the Century.” He awoke my appreciation for the art of editing, as well as my desire to go out and learn it.
