Happy Valentine's Day...Nordic-Style!
This Thursday (Valentine's Day) our production heads to the Solitude Nordic Center, for the Nordic Skiing portion of our project. Snow or shine, we will plan on filming U.S. Ski Team Cross Country Sit-skier Chris Klebl. Due to the technical difficulties involved in shoot, we needed someone who had excellent nordic skiing experience.
Originally, we had anticipated using a snowmobile in conjunction with a steadicam to shoot all of Chris's tracking shots. Due to logistical issues, we have decided to forego the snowmobile and ski alongside Chris instead. The Nordic Center has been amazing to work with during our pre-production. We chose Solitude because of its beautiful surroundings and accessible terrain.
Thursday should be amazing. This will be our first winter sport, with Alpine Skiing, Snowmobiling and Sledge Hockey to follow.
