Video: Prodigies

History finally arrives!

You’ve seen most of them here before: Domino, Renhigotrare, VenomIndustries, Dinoman. They’re mixmaking’s best and most honored hobbyists. Today marks a special day in mixmaking history, as they conclude Prodigies, a massive undertaking that took over a year to complete. This combination of rare high school footage, interviews and highlights easily ranks first among the largest amateur video mix projects in history. Of course, no words can do the project justice, but who better to describe the video than the producers:

“The mix details the careers of three young high school prodigies (Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James) who skipped college to change the NBA game forever. Prodigies is more than an NBA mix, it’s the evolution of three men from young phenoms to superstars. Prodigies goes beyond basketball in its attempt to define three incredible careers that revolutionized the game as we know it. It’s a celebration of their competitive drive, passion and intensity, and is ultimately a story of redemption. More than one viewing of this mix is required to get the full grasp and understanding. It’s not about wins or loses, it’s about the love and passion for the game that drives these individuals to sacrifice so much.”

Enjoy. Soak. Repeat. Share. Tell. Enjoy again.– Ed.

    One of the best pieces of basketball video I have ever seen. Big props for this.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Seriously, that video is fantastic. The fact that they told a beautiful story of 3 different players in ten minutes, using only visual and audio clips that they mixed together is astounding. What a great viewing experience.

    When Bryant is announcing his intention to go to the Draft, he looks exactly the same as he does today. Thats scary.
    And their athleticism after 1/2 years in the NBA is far superior to high school. Get higher, more creative, more powerful.

    Incredible is all I can say about this. Check my website for where these mixmakers, some of the best I’ve ever seen, post their newest works.

    I just can’t believe how they do it and how they make it so professional and perfect. I’m always at awe.
