We had the chance to work with a very talented producer and cameraman during the UnitedHealthcare team camp in Arizona. One of their tasks during the week was to produce the individual rider bio videos. They brought a selection of high-end equipment including the RED Epic camera. We collaborated on some of the location shoots and shared footage for our projects. We are excited to see our footage used throughout in the final edits. Here is the 2013 UnitedHealthcare Cycling Team via the UHC YouTue channel.
In January during our coverage of the UnitedHealthcare Professional Cycling Team camp we spent some time with FASTER to produce a promotional video showcasing their facility and performance services. The video covers their boutique retail showroom, comprehensive service department, 2D and 3D bike fitting with proprietary software, recovery suite with compression boots, both hot & cold plunges, locker rooms, a clinic offering metabolic VO2 max & lactate testing, and the world’s first commercial grade low speed wind tunnel.
Here are a few video frames from the production:
We attended the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team camp in Scottsdale, Arizona back in early January to produce promotional videos about the team and sponsors. Despite a cold snap the weather was sunny and manageable for producing video. We spent three days with the team and captured the action on the back of a moto, in the team car, at the FASTER wind tunnel, and during a commercial video shoot in the desert. Special thanks to Epic Images for making it possible, FASTER, Video Resources for additional Red Epic footage and the entire UHC team and staff.
Here are a few of the finished videos:

This summer prior to the Leadville Trail 100 Run we produced video content for Competitor Running featuring ultra runner Anton Krupicka. While the first video was released a week before the race, the second video took some time to see the light of day.
Last week Tony Krupicka, Scott Jurek and Peter Bakwin hosted an event at the Boulder Running Company to promote the Ultimate Direction line of hydration vests – The Ultimate Direction Signature Series Launch Party. We captured the Q&A and an overview of the vests:
This was our 4th year producing the official video media for the Denver Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon for Competitor.com. This year we roamed the course on the back of a moto and captured much more of the sights and sounds that make this event exciting and enjoyable for the runners. Denver Nuggets player Corey Brewer took part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Bike tour on his new ride and Trevor Hall played at the finish-line in Civic Center Park.
The second edition of the USA Pro Challenge was even better than the first in our opinion. We teamed up with Bicycling.com to bring the behind the scenes action to the viewers. One of the more memorable moments was at the finish of stage 4 in Beaver Creek – Jens Voigt won after an all day breakaway and simply rolled right up to our camera for the first post race interview. A case of being in the right place at the right time. Here is the video:
The 2012 Tour de France marks our 8th consecutive year of involvement in the traveling circus that is the media. This year we worked with the Bicycling.com team and produced content for their website in the days leading up to the Grand Départ through the stage 9 Time Trial. Here are a few videos from the race:

The beginning of June saw Oskar Blues finish the expansion of their tasting room, The Tasty Weasel, and the Burning Can Beer Festival made its return to Lyons, Colorado. Burning Can teamed up with Lyons Outdoor Games & the Colorado Brewers Guild. Here are the videos we produced for these events:

During the month of May we were pleased to work with the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department on an informative video about Valmont Bike Park. The theme of the video is “know before you go” and provides users of the park with information on what to expect upon arriving and safety tips. The script and voice-over recording were produced by the City of Boulder’s Channel 8 and the aerial footage was provided by Aerial Imaging Productions & Got Aerial. We were responsible for the majority of the location video production and post-production editing.
For our sixth consecutive year covering the Amgen Tour of California we shifted gears and contracted with Bicycling Magazine to produce video content for Bicycling.com. The work detail was similar to years past with daily video interviews, tech features and post race analysis. We were pleased to work with RadioShack-Nissan-Trek rider Chris Horner for daily video diaries. Here are a few links to some of the content we produced:
