Official PbNation Video: The Awakening - Chapter 1: "Redemption" by Steven Schloss

The first installment of the Awakening Series introduces "The Bay State Bandits" led by former professional player, Benjamin Carroll. Benny returns to the sport he loves to repay a past debt and settle his troubled conscience about how he left the game.

We all owe someone in paintball. Whether it is the person who introduced us to the sport, the team that gave us a chance or even the guy who let us shoot our first paintball gun. This film is about more than settling an old debt. It's about a commitment to something larger than ourselves and where that commitment can lead if we put forth the effort as a team.


Chapter 1: Redemption

Nice. The Bandits made the front page of the nation. Excellent team to watch around the New England tournaments.

Good video in terms of editing, camera angles, song choices, stable interviews. But I didn't hear them say where this team is from?

Thank Steven Schloss for making such a solid video. And Jeff Stein for turning us onto the video.

Awesome video. Video commentary in paintball videos always seems to repeat itself, but you guys used some great visualizations through your words to convey what almost everyone in tournament paintball has felt or seen before. Kudos to Steven and the Bandits.

This struck me as odd. The coach said that they lost on a major, when the video shows the ref throwing a minor. (you can tell its a minor because his major is still in the pocket) Was this not the actual video of the game loosing penalty?

Side note, if you look at the players outside pod it completely justifies the minor.
