Timber Jim

Tonight was Timber Jim’s last game. He has been the mascot for the Timbers since the 70’s. An amazing person and an icon in the city as far as soccer fans are concerned. I decided to try my hand at a little multimedia, gathering audio and shooting stills and then piecing it all together before leaving the park. Let me know what you think. I’m new to making audio slideshow’s and I have a lot to work on. This took about an hour or hour and half to mix the audio (which I am horrible at) and make the show.

    Craig – Thanks so much for capturing Timber Jim’s final moments on the pitch. I am in Korea this month and had to miss opening night – but your montage let me experience what I missed for just a few moments. Gives me chills!
    Hope all is well,
    Kari
