In preparation for ESPN’s telecast of Monday Night Football in San Diego, Director of Photography Bob Sloan leads a Sloan productions high definition crew and shoots the helmets of the opposing teams. San Diego hosted the Denver Broncos during ESPN, ABC, and Disney’s 40th year production of the most popular football telecast of each football season. By hiring local qualified production crews in San Diego, ESPN is able to control costs as opposed to traveling a crew across the country. This shot was used in the opening of the Monday Night Countdown show that precedes the actual telecast. Sloan Productions provides professional production crews in San Diego to networks, independent producers, and corporations.
