🎥🎥🎥3 VIDEOS. SWIPE RT TO CONTINUE OR LINK TO FULL VIDEO IN BIO🎥🎥🎥 When @nbcsports producer, @kgerringer , call me up and told me about the opportunity to shoot the US Olympic Skating team on the Ice in San Jose for some Winter #Olympics Promos......I was 100% on board.
I’ve been on the ice before with my @freeflysystems #movipro before but never with this large of a setup.
Nothing was choreographed between the skaters and cameras and we only had about 5-6 mins on the ice with each single or pair. Kristen and I would explain to each skater the types of shots we were looking for, they would perform a section of their routine or just improv and we would follow along as best we could!
Sometimes I fell, and sometimes I got just a little bit too close....but there is no doubt that we captured some amazing images that day that were used on NBC Sports throughout the month of Feb. to tease the Figure Skating events and features.
Director of Photography, @tm5000 , lit the rink beautifully and had good instincts to choose the 40mm #Kowa #Anamorphic lens we flew on the @reddigitalcinema #epicw
AC, Keaton Bowlby, (@ascendingworks )was just off the ice nailing focus off of the @teradek #Bolt1000 wireless feed which allowed me to just focus on framing shots in majestic mode.
Produced by @nbcsports and Kristen Gerringer.
PS: You’ll be happy to know @nathanwchen ‘s skate is fine and my RED monitor only sustained minor injuries.
