MUST SEE VIDEO: RSL Youth Player Gabby Okito
Stop what you're doing and watch the clip above (or here in HD to get the full effect). Two amateur filmmakers, Van Wagenen & Isaac Halasim, made a short film about African-born Real Salt Lake youth prospect Gabby Okito that in my opinion is better put together than every non-U.S. Soccer or ESPN produced piece I've seen this year. The story is compelling, the color is vibrant, the editing is crisp and the audio is well mixed; if anyone from an MLS front office reads this, please pick up the black courtesy iPhone and give these guys a call.
This is the type of content fans should see. Something attractive, something energetic, something revealing. And frankly if these guys can do it on a lark in 2 days, you should be able to do it over a season with a budget. Seriously, someone give these guys a job. Try checking out the first goal at Rio Tinto through the lens of their camera without drawing slow breath. It's impossible, unless you are Jon Conway.
