Looking for someone to host a snowboarding web series

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

Hi All,
 
I am looking for someone to host a snowboarding web series that will be run on YouTube. It will be directed by a Discovery Channel Producer and filmed by seasoned snowboard film camera man. 
 
The series will be informational in nature, teaching its viewers how to do everything from spin tricks and rail slides to sharpening your board. I will be happy to share all of the details with you if you send me a personal message. 
 
Applicants must be talented as well as personable. I would like to begin shooting the series at Mount Snow in Vermont.
 
If you are not in the East Coast area I am still interested in working with you. So, please feel free to respond. I think there are ways to do this remotely for those who are not on the East Coast. 
 
I am happy to pay for a lift pass and am open to discussing additional compensation based on your experience.
 
If you are interested just send me a brief message as well as a  link to a video of yourself snowboarding and talking to camera. 
 
Thanks,

Might want to check out Holly Anderson or Terry Duffield (ask through the Mount Snow ski school) or Brian Spier (contact through Stratton school). If they are not personally interested, they probably will give you some good local references.

I recommend Tony Macri at Copper Mountain, Chris Hargrave at Northstar-at-Tahoe, and Earl Saline with the education committee at AASI/PSIA national office in Lakewood, CO. 

 

Tony used to compete, is head divisional examiner for AASI-Rocky Mountain, and is a super nice guy.   He's passionate about the sport and very personable.

 

Chris wrote the AASI/PSIA Park and Pipe Manual and is the Burton Academy Director at Northstar.  Chris has done some video for the AASI education committee and Winter Park when he worked there. One AASI video - http://www.terrainparksafety.org/press.asp

 

Earl - he's a ex-AASI Demo Team member and is Cert 3 in snowboarding, skiing, and telemark.   Just about the nicest person you'll meet.  Incredibly knowledgeable.  He wrote the AASI Movement Analysis Handbook.

 

None of these guys are on the East Coast but it would be a real coup if you could get any of them.
