As South Park once said, “We’re gonna need a montage… (montage)!” I’ve always found play-by-play to be my favorite form of story-telling when it comes to sports, but a close second in my mind is the montage. This is somewhat ironic considering the two are basically opposites of each other. Play-by-play uses words to paint the picture and describe the game whereas a montage uses a brilliantly edited combination of video and music to do the job. When done right, a montage can create inspiring emotion. I’ve taken a stab at creating a few over the years.
