Greg Oden HD Game Footage Needed for Oden Highlight Reel!


I am looking to make the final highlight film in my Trilogy (SABAS Arvydas Sabonis being the 1st, https://vimeo.com/38554391, and MAGIC vs BIRD being the 2nd, https://vimeo.com/42322128). The new highlight vid is entitled LEGACY OF ODEN, and I need to have it done by Sunday 9/16 in time to premiere at Portland's monthly short film fest, ATTACK OF THE FLIX @ the Curious Comedy Club.

I have a more emotional attachment to Greg Oden than I do to most human beings I actually know. I remember where I was when I learned we lucked into the #1 draft pick that year, I remember where I was when I learned Greg would be out for the season, I watched Oden's first dunk in that Miami road game about 92 times in a row... etc etc.

I have been horribly disappointed deep within my gut on numerous occasions due to my love for Oden, obviously. But I want this highlight video to be an uplifting experience that helps Blazers fans get that horrible taste out of their mouths. For me, the Glory of being an Oden fan was the dream of his potential... and as someone who watched many of his games, it was a potential that I actually saw realized at many points. When healthy for extended periods, Oden changed the games he played in. I want to focus on the glorious dunks, swats, & beastly rebound totals Oden collected.

The footage I am the most interested in comes from the fall of 2009. I feel like just before that final injury in the Houston game, Greg was putting up Moses Malone-type stats. It is the glory of that unrealized potential that I want to capture in the video. Anyway, I'm hoping the BlazersEdge peeps can help me out with sources for high-quality Oden highlights. I've emailed and called the broadcasting peeps for the Blazers and they've given me the run-around. I'll keep trying, but please please please email me if you know of sites for high-quality stuff. The Oden highlights on YouTube are for the most part low-quality and very scarce.

Check out the links (above) to my previous two highlight films (BIRD vs MAGIC being the better of the two) and if you know of places to score some Oden game footage, especially from late 2009, email me at beekperson@yahoo.com

Thanks peoples!
