First Tracks Productions…No Longer Grounded. We’ve picked up some new equipment of late and one of the more fun things we’ve purchased is a quadcopter for aerial filming. We’re still learning the ropes with it, but just about ready to use it in projects – and definitely looking forward to it!
Leave the Stereotypes at Home…
It seems like everything from cars to vacations are still marketed with some weird 50s mentality of gender norms about what men like and what women like. We decided to have some fun at the expense of that in our latest project for Tahoe South…

It’s ok, I’m an addict too…
People who visit Tahoe South to ski and snowboard just can’t seem to get enough of it. That’s ok; not all addictions are unhealthy. First Tracks Productions came up with the premise and produced the intro for Tahoe South’s new “Get Your Fix” video. We then mixed in some really strong and fun skiing and snowboarding footage that we shot all around the South Shore to give people a taste of what they can experience during winter in Tahoe South.
See you at the next meeting:
First Tracks, kicking off the Tahoe Adventure Film Festival…
A video First Tracks Productions produced for SkiDUCK will kick things off at this year’s Tahoe Adventure Film Festival on Saturday, December 8th in MontBleu’s theater. First Tracks has been featured in TAFF numerous times over the years – starting with their inaugural event 8 years ago.
If you’re anywhere near Tahoe that night, check it out – you won’t be disappointed.
Alexis Roland – Still Charging at the Advanced Age of 12
It seems like Alexis Roland has to be older. Not only has she been on the scene and turning heads in contests and video parts for years, but she’s doing stuff that older riders just aren’t doing yet. Hiking for powder? Check. Hitting street rails? Check. Tech tricks in the park? Check.
First Tracks Productions only filmed a few days with Lexi this season, but that’s all it takes with her to make a really fun video. Check it out:
Tour de Tahoe – 72 Beautiful Miles On Skinny Tires
The Tour de Tahoe gives riders a great opportunity to do an amazing ride and many do it for an amazing cause. A lot of the riders were raising money to benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research. Even if you’re not in to road cycling, check this out for the gorgeous views…or, at least for the spandex.
2 First Tracks videos getting some love…
The pride we get from doing a good job and knowing we did a good job is all well and good. But at the same time, it’s a cool feeling when our work is recognized by our peers. Our egos need some love too. So, we’re pretty stoked that 2 videos that First Tracks recently produced have received some really positive recognition:
In February, First Tracks produced a video on the opening of the Burton-Star Wars park at Sierra-at-Tahoe — an amazing experience that introuduces little ones to the sport of snowboarding in a fun and unique fashion. Ski Area Management, an industry/trade magazine, highlighted this video (one of only 4 videos they recognized positively) and labeled it the “Heartwarming Video of the Year.” You can see the video here:
Also in February, First Tracks produced a video to help get some attention for a great non-profit, SkiDUCK. The video — a parody of the song “I’ve Been Everywhere” changed to “I’ve Skied Everywhere” — will be showcased at the National Ski Area Association’s annual conference in San Antonio this month. Not going to make it to the conference? No worries.You can see the video here:
