European Gay Ski Week is set in the heart of the Alps in Les Arc. We spent the week capturing the ski, boarding and party as they happened and produced a series of post event marketing videos for use on their website and social media platforms.
European Gay Ski Week was hosted in Les Arcs. It’s an annual event for the LGTB community to get together on the slopes with winter sports, cabaret, Comedy and parties.
The event Organisers got in touch after seeing our high impact events videos and wanted us to produce promotional content for their event.
We drove to France with a car full of kit and a team of 4. Two camera Operators, a photographer and a sound designer. We arrived the day before the guests to find our feet in Les Arcs and work out our surroundings.
We had a lot to capture over the week so we got straight into it. Filming on the ski slope with GoPros at the ready allowed us to capture fast moving action sports. We split up and went off with different groups to show the different levels from beginner to expert.
Working closely with the dancers and drag queens we got them out on the slopes for some extra unique shots. We also used timelapse and hyperlapse to add a little extra to the videos.
Après Ski followed by a night filming the parties, dinners, cabaret, club nights and plenty of dancing was on the cards.
We delivered two videos that showcased the event. Firstly, a short highlights video and secondly an extended aftermovie. The videos will be used as promotional tools for next year’s event, and make a great momento for all the attendees from this year’s event. The sound design really brought it to life, and the client was over the moon with the final production. We have been invited back next year off the back our work and will look forward to filming it all again next year!
