Lambeau Field line painting

This could be a pretty cool video story. A day or two before every home game, the packers field managers drop about 170 gallons of paint on the field in lines and logos. It's an all-day job making the playing surface accurate and beautiful for fans and television audiences.

I was happy with this assignment and really tried to work it well.
