Behind the Scenes at Rapids Open Video Shoot

The Rapids Game Entertainment department, who got their first chance in 2009 to fire up the state-of-the-art production equipment at the stadium last night and dust off the cobwebs while producing the Mexico vs. Bolivia match, are back to knee-deep preparations for Rapids Opening Night.

One of the elements that fans have to come to expect from the club is the Rapids' annual tradition of creating a new Team Open Video that sets the tone for home matches at the stadium, and runs prior to team introductions.

The Rapids are continuing their yearly efforts to not only top last year's Open Video in terms of theme and theatricality, but also to set the standard league-wide for creating entertaining in-stadium elements like these music videos that celebrate our players and our club in an exciting manner for fans.

This year's production has involved four different on-location video shoots involving the stadium, coaches and players, and is currently in post-production.

Here's a sneak peek photo from behind the scenes with Gary Smith and the "Rapids Studios" staff directing a shot on the green screen in the KSE production studio.

Fans will get the first chance to see the 2009 Rapids Team Open on Opening Night vs. KC on March 28.
