72 hour Filmmaker Showdown

I was very pleased, when asked if I could help with filming for 72 hour Filmmaker Showdown during Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival. Filmmakers are tasked to shoot, edit and produce a 3-5 minute short film within 100km radius of Whistler over the course of 72 hours. I have never done any video before, however thanks to Jonathan Peterson – the master of this film, I completely felt in love with making movies. Despite 72 hour challenge, I was amazed how relaxed Jon could be and how much time he spent showing me some tricks while filming. There is so much pressure to make this crazt deadline and this only shows how talented and composed Jon is. Ollie Popley was the second guy behind the lens, however the film would not happened without a great crew in front of the lens and behind the scenes. Despite my already crazy schedule, I was happy to find some time to help these guys with filming. My contribution was fairly small comparing the rest of the crew, however I loved being part of this creative crew, sharing the ideas and feeding of each other. The film – Good Times – made the finals and we were all stoked to see it on the big screen in front of 1800 strong audience!
