FWT TV Production / behind the scenes

The Freeride World Tour’s TV production has undergone a massive step-up this season with live production on all stops, straight from the mountains to your couch. I’m in charge of the production on the 4 european events: Courmayeur, Chamonix, Fieberbrunn and Verbier. This behind-the-scene clip gives an insight of the efforts needed to make this happen.

The Chamonix competition alone involved a team of 40 people working on the various aspects of the TV production, and doing what they do best : shooting, editing, setting up transmissions and satellite connections, rigging a production tent in -15°c, installing gopros, scripting, translating, voicing programs, shooting Phantom, operating the cineflex, etc etc. This massive team effort has been paying off!

This second clip is dedicated to the filming tools and the technology that we use on the FWT:
