Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame to launch newest publication:
Football In Focus:Five Decades of Filming Pro Games
by Darrell Davis & John Solilo
The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and co-publisher, DriverWorks Ink Publishing, invite you to the official launch of the 37th book as part of the Sport History Project.
Some of the earliest visual recordings of Canadian football were accomplished with bulky, hand-wound cameras which held three minutes’ worth of black-and-white film and had to be reloaded about 20 times per game. Football In Focus: Five Decades of Filming Pro Games tells the story of the importance of the “game tape”, the people responsible for them, and the evolution of the technology from film to video cassettes to digital recordings. Football In Focus tracks this historical journey and the personal commitment required.
Please join authors Darrell Davis and John Solilo as we officially launch Football In Focus.
