Our main operator and all around great guy Paul Watt spent four days and nights on his feet fending off party animals with a Mōvi and an Epic to capture most of the in crowd shots in this video. We were super stoked to be working with Huka Entertainment not to mention the magnanimous man-studs that are Josh Martin and Ryan McNeely from Gifted Youth. We look forward to having a bigger part in the 2015 show that is assuming Paul’s feet and liver have healed sufficiently.
Stu & Shin are even lurking in the video can you find them?
We had a banner year here at Whistler Creek Productions and just want to send out a huge Thank -You to all our clients, partners and colleagues. Our projects this year were varied to say the least, which is one of the reasons we love doing what we do. We put Still shoots together for Aritzia & Pottery Barn as well as Oakley which included wrangling a 1600 pound grizzly bear named Barney. We ran a mini series with Sportsnet & Banff Ice Vodka highlighting some of Canada’s Top Snow Athletes. We were privileged to be part of F-stop’s on going series Life In Focus. Ended up on National Geographic’s Page for our Cineflex Piece highlighting a fall day in Squamish. Produced a backcountry segment for Disney for their Made For TV Movie Cloud 9, and spent a couple glorious days with Arcteryx in their studios producing new content. During August we produced a five day shoot for Microsofts newest brainchild Yammer where we pulled off winter in one of the nicest summers the Sea to Sky has ever seen. Our personal passion project on 10 year old Seth Sherlock the mountain bike mad man hit 300 k views and is still growing, as well it is currently a Finalist In The VIFF. To wrap up the year we helped produce a Labatt commercial on both the snow and ATV’s while utilizing our newest toy the MŌVI. We have used the MŌVI on numerous shoots now and are finding it an affordable solution for stabilized aerial shots, in fact Shin is in Africa right now testing its limits there. We have also added a couple new team members Paul Watt who is as talented behind the lens as he is at teching out all our gear and photographer Mark Gribbon who can wrangle camping for 25 people on a glacier and still get the shot while doing it.
Thanks again everybody for working with us in 2013.
We really love what we do and hope to be doing you soon!
Our main man tech guru and super shooter Paul Watt was out the other day doing a little test with our Movi and Easy Rig set up. Get at us in the new year if you are looking for a stable system to rent.
Last year Tadashi went solo with just one filmer and put together this awesome segment. It is no easy task to shoot a snowboard part solo in the backcountry, long days, fighting weather and snow conditions are just some of the hurdles you face. We love to see someone committed to a cause and pulling it off. Great images in here guys, nice focus Tadashi.
The boys at YES SNOWBOARDS released their first webisode the other day. It is jammed packed with pillow goodness and good times. That is until the end when Romain goes down while riding a stack. It was great to see someone we work closely with Mr Paul Watt step up to the plate and deal with the situation like a pro. Thats the difference when you choose to work with WCP, even our top shooters know how to deal with the problems that arise while shooting in the backcountry. Ask yourself, would you rather have someone that spends his winter in the backcountry shooting your next commercial? Or some penny loaf wearing DP that has to buy a new pair of boots just to come to the location. Get at us we get it done.
