How to get your meet Video-Taped by The Track Show
We will film any meet as long as we aren't booked for the day. It's first come, first serve. We can do two cross country meets in a day but only one track meet. The cost depends upon the number of races in cross country or the length of the meet in track & field. We pay people to film the meet, convert the videos and upload it to the internet. It takes a lot of time to do that. We don't care if we make money but we don't want to lose it.
A cross country meet can range from $150 (small meet) to $300+ (7-8 hours). An average 5 hour track meet can be about $250. That includes almost 100 heats of races. In cross country, we send two camera people to cover different parts of the race. How many spots we can get depends on the course layout and if we get just the leaders or most of the field. In track, we have two people so they can take turns filming and converting. We can add someone to do interviews as well but that would be extra.
We recommend that you get a sponsor to pay. In return, we post a big banner ad on the top of each video page with a link to their website. It would say "meet coverage sponsored by ????." An example would be here. We can also do special things for the sponsor like "special sale for The Track Show viewers" to get more hits to their website and more feedback. The sponsor can decide how much the sale will be.
Don’t end up as a meet with no Track Show coverage! The coverage gives the athletes, coaches, parents, relatives and friends a chance to watch and re-watch the race as many times and as long as they like. Most importantly, it gives the meet a buzz and can increase entries for the next year.
