Filming Skiers for Ski Film
I am a college student working on creating a ski film and I just had a few questions that I was hoping some people could answer.
I will be at some mountains in Colorado in the next few weeks and I don't really have many great skiers to film. I'm also a student doing this for fun so hiring skiers to film with isn't an option. I was wondering if I'm allowed to just set up in the terrain park and film people as they ski down. Would I need to get their permission or could I just keep rolling until I hopefully get some good clips?
I'm really curious about this and hopefully someone can help. Thanks!
You should ask the Ski resort if you can film skiers/snowboarders going down the terrian park.
Get a written consent first. Never know when someone is trying to hide. Also, just showing up at a park wont get you footage at all. Unless its a major resort, all you will get are 5 year old with their moms.
The key is organization. Make sure you can visit your riders before shooting and get to know them. They may have different aspirations about film making. On ads and stuff, most people will answer with big talk but will never show up; especially people with little experience or credibility.
Yeah, I quoted myself, that just proves how awesome I am
I got it...You do future spins, you get PAYED! it's that simple!
2.Do future spins in competitions
Which mountains? Some areas have better riders consistently than others.
I was actually wondering about something similar. I may possibly move to SLC in the near future and was wondering, if I just stood at the top of the Three Kings lift and asked people if they wouldn't mind being in a free edit, would people be down? I like filming and editing but it would blow if I didn't have anyone to film.
I really couldn't see why not, especially if you have legit gear on you. I hope the ski community is still chill enough that people wouldn't be freaked out.
