Diesel Films is excited to grow with our client PSI Sports into year number two of our agency-partner relationship.

The Ventura-based player agency represents top MLB players including Aaron Judge, Scott Kingery and Kolten Wong along with a number of MLB prospects. Our goal with PSI was to build their social media presence, provide them with a consistent branded look and highlight players’ achievements on and off the field every day.

With social media’s evolution, there’s a greater need for providing clients with dynamic video in addition to still images. As people, we process video much faster, which is why oftentimes video performs much better on social than photos with text.

To elevate PSI’s social media presence even more, we created a two-day content capture to gather footage of PSI’s players, workouts and accommodations that make the agency so unique.

Take a peek behind-the-scenes…

THE TRAINING

One thing that sets PSI apart from other agencies is Coach David “DY” York’s eight-week training program.

THE BEACH HOUSES

After wrapping at PSI, we headed to the Oxnard Coast to film scenics of the beach houses PSI provides for its players.

As PSI brings its players to the next level, we look forward to elevating them as a brand as well.

More to come…
