WEST HARTFORD,Conn (July 18, 2013)
Bluefoot Entertainment, based in West Hartford, CT collaborated with ESPN on it’s Open Championship coverage for the sixth year in a row, producing essays, bumps and multiple Opening Sequences that will air throughout The Open this week at Muirfield. The videos showcase the unique faces and places that make up the beautiful country of Scotland. From the historic city of Edinburgh to Aberdeen and Inverness, the team traveled over a thousand miles, capturing images from each unique region. The videos touch on iconic aspects of Scottish history and culture, including bagpipers, kilt making, the famous Military Tattoo, scotch whiskey, and even a haunted castle. Bluefoot partnered with Ian McShane to voiceover the pieces which were written by ESPN’s Wright Thompson. Open Championship viewers can look forward to getting a real feel for the country.
“We have been so lucky to travel to Scotland and England on many occasions to cover the Open Championship,” says Bluefoot founder, Timothy Horgan who directed, edited and produced the Scotland shoots. “We’ve been to every corner of Britain and have always showcased the natural beauty and majestic landscapes that vary so much from region to region. So this year, at Muirfield, it was a real treat for us to finally tell the story of the people of Scotland and their unique way of life and history. We hope you enjoy watching, as much as we’ve enjoyed putting the pieces together.”
Bluefoot collaborated with ESPN on more than 20 Scottish video essays to give viewers a rich visual experience of Scotland. They will air throughout the Open Championship and can all be viewed at www.bluefoot.tv.
The 2013 Open Championship will be the 142nd Open Championship, held from the 18th – 21st of July at Muirfield Golf Links in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland.
