Here in the Revolution Digital department, we're always trying new things. For me, I am obsessed with iOS apps and all the great things they can do to help create cool content. Last night felt like a good night to try out a new app I recently grabbed, iMotion HD. This is essentially a time-lapse application for the iPad and iPhone.
So, I pointed my iPad2 out the press box window, set the app to take a photo every three seconds and let it run from about 6 p.m. (when gates opened) to 9 p.m. (when the match ended). Below are the results, with a little contrast and music added in Final Cut Pro.
See if you can pick out where Lee Nguyen and Jerry Bengtson scored!
Only thing that would have made this better is well, if it was shot on a new iPad or (the iPad2 camera isn't that great), but I think I can live with this for now. Enjoy!
We all know by now that Jay Heaps has lived up to his promise to attack. So, starting with this Saturday's TV broadcast on Comcast SportsNet, you'll be seeing some of this attacking in a new 30-second spot before the match and during halftime. Select Xfinity customers will also start to see this on their big-screens throughout July and August on various channels.
Here's a sneak peek:
Do you love cooking for pre-game tailgates? Why not share your favorite recipes with other Revs fans?
Starting this Saturday, June 30, we want to see what you’re cooking for each Revolution home game.
Here’s what you do:
- Whip up your favorite tailgating food.
- Take a photo of the finished product.
- Eat it (duh).
When you get home or when you’re reliving the match on your couch, submit that photo you took of your masterpiece and post both the photo and the recipe (recipe as the photo caption) you used to make it to the Revolution Facebook timeline (facebook.com/nerevolution).
All recipes posted to our timeline will be plucked from there and pinned to our new “Tailgaters Recipe Book” on the Revs Pinterest page (pinterest.com/nerevolution).
The recipe that receives the most re-pins by will be named “Recipe of the Match.” Re-pins will be counted for three days after the match (Tuesday for a Saturday game, Wednesday for a Sunday game, etc.).
Have fun and let's see those recipes!
Both the Under-18s and the Under-16s were in action on Tuesday, so the day saw players and staff going every which way.
Everyone ate breakfast at the hotel by 9 a.m., and the teams met one after another for lunch and meetings shortly after noon.
Scheduled to kick off at 4 p.m. local time, the U16s boarded the bus and left for the fields at 2:45, while the U18s returned to the Italian bistro for a pregame meal.
The U16s played Albertson SC to a 2-2 draw in their first game of the Development Academy Playoffs, before heading back to the hotel to shower and change before a postgame meal at the restaurant.
The U18s hopped on the bus at 6:45 to go to the fields. Kicking off at roughly 8:15 p.m., they suffered a hard-fought 4-3 loss to Chivas USA.
Following the game, both the U18s and U16s shared a genuinely heartfelt moment. Despite the loss, the U18s had displayed an unforgettable amount of heart and commitment to battle for each other, and the group took a few moments to appreciate it.
On Wednesday, the Under-16s will take on Pateadores in their second game of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Monday was day one of the Development Academy Playoffs and with a game scheduled for 8 p.m. local time, the day was a fairly low key one.
After a long travel day, the Revs’ youth teams have made it to Frisco, Texas, and are preparing for day one of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs.
