Phil and Emma in HIGH DEFINITION!*
Phil and Emma doing what they do best in St Anton March 2011.
In early January this year Phil and I were contacted by a company called SG Television Productions. Managing Director, Simon Golding is a well known sports commentator and I got to know him whilst working with Eurosport commentating on Alpine Events.
Simon’s brief to me was, ‘We need: sunshine, powder and great skiing to test a new HD camera.’ As anyone who skied last season will know, 2011 was not the year for powder so I waited and waited and waited! Our waiting paid off and when I checked the long term weather forecast in early March for St Anton , searched out an untracked area (although it hadn’t snowed for 2 weeks), I was finally able to give the crew a go ahead!
If you watch closely you’ll notice us walking up the mountain – hence we found almost untracked, fabulous snow which after a 2 week snow draught would normally be unheard of in St Anton which is usually an off-piste mecca!
SGTV put this video/audio edit together for us – but there are limitations on rights usage, so we’re not taking advantage of the footage for broader promotion… but hope you enjoy watching it nevertheless!
