NBC World of Adventure Sports to air TGR 3D Stevens Pass segment

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 27, 2010 12:10 pm

During Winter 2009-10 the Teton Gravity Research (TGR) crew of athletes and cinematographers captured the most jaw-dropping footage ever witnessed for their new movie, Light The Wick. Continuing to push the limits of technology, TGR shot the first-ever 3D snow sports segment with skiers Byron Wells, Sammy Carlson, and John Spriggs at Stevens Pass.

The logistics of shooting a 3D segment was not an easy task – it required hours of modifying camera mounts and a lot of guesswork. In the end, the shoot was a huge success as the groundbreaking dual RED One slow motion aerial shots will make you want to reach out and touch the action.

To mark the achievement, this Saturday’s NBC’s World of Adventure Sports will feature a behind the scenes look at what went into making the shoot possible. World of Adventure Sports airs on Saturdays at 3 p.m. EST.
