We finished another batch of D3 Multisport triathlon specific videos that will be rolled out gradually on their website & Vimeo channel. In addition to a new coach profile video, we produced thirty D3 Triathlon Minute videos that provide specific advice and tips for better training, racing and nutrition for triathletes. The video above tackles a common question: How Do You Urinate During a Race?
We were on assignment for Competitor Running in August to document the Leadville Trail 100 Run in Leadville, CO. Having covered the 100-mile mountain bike race in 2010 and 2011, we were familiar with the town, surroundings and portions of the course used for the run. The strategy was to cover the front of the race while capturing scenic shots along the way. The majority of our coverage was on Hope Pass (12,620 feet), which was the major climb of the day and situated near the turnaround point at Winfield. The video above showcases the racing of the day. Congratulations to Rob Krar, The North Face, finishing in 16:09:32.
We also produced a short piece on the UROC Race in Copper Mountain, CO on September 6, 2014.
The 2014 Tour de France was our 9th consecutive Tour. This year, as with 2012 & 2013, we were on assignment with Bicycling.com. We produced daily video interviews, features, product overviews and Tour Talk, a daily stage recap with James Startt and Frankie Andreu. Here are some of our favorite videos from our coverage of the 2014 Tour de France.
We produced this technical video for SRAM’s New Model Year 2015 Hydraulic Road Brakes. This video was on the heels of SRAM’s initial hydraulic road brake launch which went through a recall. After the recall we produced a couple of updates including two featuring Stan Day, President of SRAM. The videos were published on SRAM’s popular YouTube channel – SRAM Road Diaries.

Competitor.com had a strong media campaign leading up to and during the 2014 Boston Marathon. Much of our footage from 2013 was used in the creation of the following videos celebrating the event, people and city of Boston.
Over the past 6-months we have been working with D3 Multisport, a top triathlon and endurance sports training & coaching company in Boulder, CO. The project consisted of beginner and advanced coaching videos taking on a variety of topics from what and how to eat during training to proper swimming techniques and much more. We also created a few individual videos introducing the coaches, history in endurance sports and their expertise. The beginner videos are completed and we are currently working through the final edits of the advance series. Check out their website to see how they are integrating the videos into the content on the page – D3 Multisport Strength Training While Traveling Nutrition on Race Day Learn to Smile
We were involved in the post production of DU’s “Voices of Experience” keynote featuring Zayo’s CEO Dan Caruso. The event was held at Daniels College of Business on February 24, 2014. Dan’s speech discusses the rise, fall, & resurgence of the fiber industry. He shares battle stories and lessons learned from his career and the growth of Zayo Group. We were able to turn this project around within a day of receiving the source video files.
Here is our video highlight of the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon, which for the first time featured a Bike Tour in addition to the half and full marathon options. This was our 5th year covering this event and it’s nice to see the growth over the years. Most of our shots were captured from the back of a moto and we enjoyed the post race entertainment – Atlas Genius.
