Husky Faceoff: December 13, 2019
Collegiate Student Live Non Game Production 2020
Producer - Mitchell Barnhart Producer/Host - Nik Speliopoulos Producer - Chris Person Director - Paige Jaeger The St. Cloud State Huskies prepare for NCHC action against The University of Omaha Mavericks on a very special night. Husky Faceoff joins the rest of St. Cloud State in celebrating 30 years of hockey at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. The intention of the show was to accomplish two main goals: 1) keep a theme around the celebration of the Hockey Center’s 30 Year Anniversary and 2) to create a sense of seamlessness and flow for the viewer. Beginning with the history of the building, we pivot into a breakdown of the game that lies ahead. In this 5-minute clip, we hear from St. Cloud State’s Captain Jack Ahcan. We talk about the Huskies’ performance in the previous series, look at the matchup in the pipes, and talk to The Rink Live’s Mick Hatten. A variety of graphic animations, video layers, and different cameras around the rink were used to tell the story of what is about to happen on the ice.
