Caught on Video
By Scot Mondore
On Monday, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum staff members were busy shooting an ad to promote the book: Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame, published by Simon & Schuster in April 2013 – for the Holiday gift-giving season.
Director of communications Craig Muder and Hall of Fame Staff photographer Milo Stewart Jr. discussed several artifacts from the Museum’s collection included in the work. Milo spoke to the nuances of photographing such interesting and special baseball artifacts – focusing on colors, texture and historical/cultural significance pieces that he admires most from the collection.
Also pictured in the photo, behind the camera, are Roger Lansing and Nate Owens of the Museum’s Multimedia department. These two gentlemen will take the raw footage from the shoot, work their collective magic and turn the material into the finished ad. Between the two of them, Roger and Nate have worked on many projects for the Hall of Fame, including oral histories, Hall of Fame member interviews and special event coverage.
Our staff in Cooperstown are always finding new and engaging ways to help promote the programs that are important to the organization. Look for the video to be released in early to mid-November.
