What goes into making tease videos made for major sporting events?

I found out exactly during my coverage at this years Women’s Final Four in Dallas, Texas from March 28 – April 4 for Clarkson-Creative / NCAA Photos. My first assignment on this day was to cover the ESPN Tease Shoots happening at American Airlines Center.

The point of these shoots are to capture video (and still photos) of all the teams playing in the Final Four games. This consisted of whole team video spots, coach and player interviews, trophy shots and fun clips to be played on the jumbotron during the games and broadcasts.
