Who We Are

Coldest Shoot: 22-degrees below zero.
And we’d gladly do it again.

After what now seems like an out-of-body experience working in the political consulting field, Anthony Cupaiuolo founded First Tracks Productions in 2001. Through 2009, First Tracks focused on snowboarding videos, releasing full-length movies for DVD and network television.

Along the way, Anthony and his team of riders and producers started picking up contract work for other companies — a freeskiing movie here, a tourism promo there. First Track’s reputation as a skilled videography company with urban and back-country on-location experience began to spread. Even Avid, the biggest video editing company, took notice and partnered with First Tracks in 2005.

Today that work has become First Tracks’ focus. With 15 years of filming experience, Anthony can assemble a team that fits your needs and budget, whether you’re looking to hire one person for an afternoon or a full-scale production crew for a week. One of First Tracks’s primary partners is David N. Braun Photography. David is a natural fit for us here at First Tracks. He specializes in fine art photography and videography and has a true passion for the great outdoors. When not behind the camera, David can be found enjoying all that the mountain and coastal West has to offer on foot, bike and board. His work is sold online and featured in galleries around Lake Tahoe.

Even when we’re outside playing and not making videos, we’re still making videos…Check out some POV action from a play day here:
