Lake Tahoe Summerfest is a world-class celebration of the arts that enriches the cultural, educational, and economic vitality of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Our quest is to provide extraordinary music, art, theatre, and seminars to local, national, and international audiences. This was a tough one to shoot as it was hard not to just relax and enjoy the amazing music and experience in front of me…
Carson Valley is a pretty amazing place…And, there’s no lacking in things to do there and in nearby Lake Tahoe. We’re helping them get the word out by producing a video series showcasing the winner of their Carson Valley Rider contest checking out all that Carson Valley has to offer. Here’s the first video in that series:
I’ve been a bit antsy of late with not quite enough snow to be hitting the backcountry but too much snow to take out one of my mountain bikes, so I decided to rent a Fat Bike from Sierra Ski and Cycle Works here in town and I gotta say, it was tough to bring it back. I felt like a little kid playing in the snow. And, after a couple of days on it, I started to realize how much potential Fat Bikes have – and not just on snow, it was great in mud and tacky dirt too. Fat Bikes are really bringing year-round mountain biking to just about every area.
Here’s a quick clip thrown together from the past couple of days riding solo (none of my friends have a Fat Bike – yet). I put a Panasonic LX7 on a Xsories bendy tripod to supplement the GoPro shots). So, nothing crazy for the production value (or the riding), but some nice views and some Fat Bike stoke. Check it out!
Winter and Summer are what the Tahoe area is most well-known for, but Fall is a pretty amazing time too. Mountain Biking, Fly Fishing, and taking in the Fall colors among the wildlife…not too shabby. We put together this 30-second clip to showcase Fall is just as good a time visit Tahoe as the beach days of summer and the pow days of winter. Check it out:
The Ragnar 24 hour trail relay came to Sierra at Tahoe recently and we put together this highlight video of the action. This was a really fun event and a great example of what First Tracks can do with even a small budget. Anthony was a one-person crew this day shooting the photos toward the beginning of the video as well as all of the video (including the aerial shots). See what 24 hours looks like in 1.5 minutes:
Late Spring = Waterfall season in Tahoe South. So, First Tracks set out to capture five different falls and showcase them in one two-minute video. Take a break and enjoy…
We have almost as much fun filming with Lexi as she does riding…Even when she ends up in the frigid waters of Lake Tahoe, she still has a smile on her face. So once we got her out, we didn’t feel bad laughing. Lexi still has a lot of filming left, but check out some what she’s been up to in her 2013 teaser. Her full video part will drop sometime this summer.
