Andy and the Sports & Entertainment Media crew are the best of the best! We pride ourselves in ultra high-end production and the S&EM crew made our team shine. They were also a VERY integral part in our EMMY winning production of The Avett Brothers. There is nobody we would rather share this award with than Andy and his incredible team.
Today’s world is based on get it now, time and attention. The consumer need for mobile live streaming is growing daily. Sports & Entertainment Media has opened my eyes to this technology and made me realize that this type of video production is a huge marketing tool (Worldwide). I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sports & Entertainment Media on several live shows at the Open Chord with proven success!
It’s always a pleasure to work with Sports and Entertainment Media on live streaming and recorded events. Andy’s professional approach and equipment assure a quick and trouble free technical setup which results in a more creative production process.
For over a decade as a NASCAR crew chief, I watched the coverage that the In-Car cameras provided. Even sitting on top of the pit box, the In-Car cameras brought me closer to the action then ever before.
Sports & Entertainment Media’s work is stunning. They have an amazingly creative eye and ‘real’ world knowledge on how to translate a great shot from idea to reality. Enjoy working on music projects with Andy.
The in-car cameras take fans closer to the action than any other sport out there. As a driver, my fans can follow me throughout a race and the sponsors obtain a powerful outlet for their branding.
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Sports & Entertainment Media on several music projects. One was a live concert with an audience, another was a 4 song music video shoot and, most recently, they did a multi camera shoot of a LIVE concert involving multiple guest artists, tie-in multi media videos during the show plus 4 one hour “best of” videos that were live-streamed to multiple social media platforms allowing me to Live Chat the shows. This massive undertaking came off seamlessly and the SEM team were a pleasure to work with.
The quality of the final product speaks for itself but the professionalism and attention to detail also made these experiences relaxed and enjoyable.
I’m also looking forward to working with Sports & Entertainment Media again very soon as they delve further into video streaming technology. The idea of presenting my Music live from a concert venue to an online audience feels like a natural next step in digital marketing. I highly recommend Andy and Sports & Entertainment Media… a wonderful combination of high tech and down to earth.
Sports and Entertainment Media provides us great service for our NASCAR production. They understand the unique challenges that working with the race teams, sponsors, officials and production personnel can have for every event. Andy Jeffers and his team do an outstanding job making sure that all of the stakeholders get the most out of the in-car platform.
As a producer, in-car cameras are essential in giving the viewer a complete picture of the race. Whether it is a driver’s hand position on the wheel, a tight pass or a wreck, in-car cameras often tell the story better than any other image available to our telecast. As a live element they show speed and the danger associated with it, thus, allowing the viewer to feel a part of the action. As a replay tool, in-cameras often show the nuances of an event that can not be seen from any other exterior angles. In other sports it is difficult (if not impossible) to give the audience an idea of what it is like to block a linebacker, dunk a basketball or make a diving catch but with in-car cameras we can give the viewer a realistic feeling of driving 180 mph with a field of competitors only inches away.
In NASCAR for years, we have had amazing in-car camera shots to bring the action closer to our viewers at home, but lately, these shots have gone to a whole new level! Could you imagine seeing exactly what the eyes of Patrick Mahomes, or Aaron Rogers see as they drop back to pass, well we have just that with our “Visor Cam”. The viewer at home is able to see everything the driver is seeing from their vantage point inside the race car!
Sports & Entertainment Media enjoys and understands great music and production. They are total pros with insane equipment and they have as much fun as the musicians do. I love opportunities that bring us together to make magic!
The in-car camera provides excellent brand exposure during all the action of a NASCAR race when customers are most likely to be watching.
In-car cameras give us a drivers perspective of the race, allowing us to see the challenges they face and the perilous conditions they experience. It’s by far my favorite way to watch the action.
Sports & Entertainment Media made a huge impact on the East Tennessee community by creating Music For Meals at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will always be grateful for the incredible amount of detail, creativity, time, passion and commitment that Sports & Entertainment Media put into this project. They went above and beyond to help in the fight against hunger by setting out on a mission to create awareness and funds for those at risk of hunger. They were able to capture our mission so beautifully and made a tremendous difference in the lives of thousands of our East Tennessee neighbors.
While the experience and expertise of the guys at Sports Media and Entertainment go a very long way, to me, their vibe is most important. As an artist, while immersed within your own headspace, and creating under pressure, these guys effortlessly usher you through with an infectiously positive atmosphere. Magic happens when everyone is comfortable and at ease. I absolutely love working with these guys.
Working with Sports and Entertainment Media is always a breeze! Andy is a genius for any live streaming or recorded event. He’s quick, professional and always available for any technical support help. With great attention to detail and tons of experience, the final product is always exciting to see. Looking forward to collaborating on many more events in the future!
Sports & Entertainment Media and VFL Films have been partners in producing television for The Tennessee Vols for many, many years. The ideas, the writing, the productions, the editing …they are all vital to our mission, but it’s the passion and dedication from Andy Jeffers and his company that we simply can not live without.
State Water Heaters has been involved in NASCAR for more than a decade now. Our activation strategy is multipronged, but consistently one of the most productive and valuable elements of our program is the use of in-car cameras. Andy Jeffers and the Sports & Entertainment Media team have always performed and allows us to leverage our on-track investment to produce the highest exposure value. In fact, our greatest levels of TV exposure have always been due to the use of an in-car camera. We plan cameras into most of our on track efforts due to the value delivered at a very reasonable price point.
In car cameras provide many benefits, not only from a driver’s perspective, but also for the fans and team partners. In this sport, you always have to be conscious of how you can maximize a brand’s exposure, and being able to include in-car opportunities prove to be an invaluable asset.
