PSV short

16/05/2009 at 06:11

Back in December I started a project on Eindhoven PSV, a Dutch premier league soccer team. The project was put on hold for a little bit while I launched another effort with SC Multimedia, but I'm excited to be getting back to the soccer story.

I grew up playing soccer and even came to Amsterdam to play in a youth tournament. So it's been an amazing experience to have great access and exposure to the professional Dutch soccer world. The stuff I dreamed about when I was in high school. I spent a week in Eindhoven filming interviews, going to training sessions and roaming the Philips Stadion. I felt like I was 16 again, in awe of the professional footballer dream. And it doesn't hurt that PSV is an incredibly warm and friendly organization. Although I was very tiring week, I was kinda sad to return to Amsterdam at the end of the week.

Hopefully I can wrap up the dream/edit by the end of the month before I move back to the US. I'll share more about the piece then.
