Wilson HS boys Water Polo team demonstrated this weekend that they had the power and determination to go all the way, winning the Pennsylvania HS State Championship Tournament in water polo.

You can go watch the final Match recorded as we streamed it, live, via uStream.  If you want to watch that match (or many of the others from the Tournament) go to

I realized, as I was going through the site here, that I had failed to actually post last year’s CVHS commercial that we put together when CV Boys won that same title, defeating none other than Wilson HS for the honor of being the 2008 Champions.  That was the same year that we put together the “Wilson… is Going Down!” video before the dual match at CV.

Today is the first day of the two day PA State Tournament, and Cumberland Valley is defending their title.

To help motivate the team I did this week’s water polo commercial.  I had asked Matt if he wanted to do it, but he said he wanted to be surprised with it–so this one is mine.

This commercial was Matthew’s first attempt at a real video commercial for Water Polo, blending music, and action, and so forth.  This was “all his” including music selection, and editing the music down to the appropriate length, and so forth.  Enjoy

If you like this work, or any of the other graphics work you see on this page, email Matt and let him know.  You can reach him at his “new” graphics company email

(nb:  we have two versions here.  The first is an h.264 mpeg codec version, and the other is a flash video.  I would really appreciate feedback from you on which ones played for you (or both, or neither…)

Not in Our House

This evening is the biggest “head to head” match of the season for Cumberland Valley Water Polo.  Wilson HS Bulldogs come into CV’s House seeking revenge for their defeat in the State Championship last year.

This “commercial” sets the tone for that match-up. (Oh, and it’s Senior Recognition Day too.)

I have uploaded three versions.  The first is a Flash (.flv) version.  The second is an MPEG2 file (mpg) and the last  is a Quicktime file (.mov)

Matthew has finished a few new computer desktop wallpaper graphics.  So far, still sticking with the Football theme but he is working under contract for some “non-football” graphics.  This round contains Royster, Tebo, and Wisniewski. (Two are Penn State players…)

Check out his latest on the Matthew’s Wallpapers page (Tab is above, or click on the link)

If you like what you see, and would like to commission a work for yourself, feel free to contact him!
