Mountain Modern Series

My good friend and fellow video shooter John Considine and myself were hired to shoot a series of promotional videos for Heavenly Mountain Resort and Vail Resorts. We worked closely with the marketing and sales team to come up with an interesting way to tell the stories of three new boutique hotels in South Lake Tahoe. The concept was to give a hosted tour of each hotel, highlighting what makes them unique.

We wanted to give these an organic feel and keep the tour moving through all the different amenities of each place. To give this effect we used a handheld gimbal to stabilize the camera and keep the footage nice and smooth. We followed the host walking through the hotel and then we went back and shot b-roll of each location. For this shoot we used 2 Sony a7s cameras, a 10 foot camera crane and a Kessler slider to keep the footage looking interesting. Check out the finished edits I put together below.
