Litewave Media recently stepped onto the green as the Tampa corporate video producer for a project with Golf Magazine and Nike. We traveled to The Players Club at Sawgrass in Ponte Verde Beach, Fla. for The Players Championship – a legendary stop on the PGA Tour.

The Players Club at Sawgrass made an incredible set!

For this A-list assignment, director of photography Christian Schwier and camera assistant Jamie Parslow filmed live interviews and video segments with golf pros Russell Henley, Charl Schwartzel, and Charles Howell III who dished on their Nike gear and life on the tour.

The top-caliber athletes awed our St. Petersburg film crew. “It’s inspiring to meet people who are super-successful and at the top of their game,” said Schwier. “You can learn a lot from their work ethic and apply it to your own life whether that’s on the golf course or in the production studio.” Our Tampa video crew also enjoyed working with Golf Magazine’s video producer John Ledesma on yet another project. “We’ve worked with John for a number of years now. He led the team on the course and is always a pleasure to work with,” Schwier said.

Our Tampa video company is proud to be a go-to producer for top sporting events. Previously we worked with Golf Magazine at the Derek Jeter Golf Classic, and we’ve also filmed the New York Yankees’ spring training as well as the 2009 Super Bowl for the Associated Press. “With sports, you have to capture those special moments as they are happening – you can’t be afraid to move right into the action to get that perfect angle or shot,” said Schwier. “It’s what makes shooting sports so exciting.”
