Summer or Winter – Cardrona has your adventure covered.
During the summer months you can get your fix of downhill mountain biking on their numerous trails. During the winter it turns into a snow lovers playground with fantastic beginner and intermediate terrain as well as world class terrain parks.
Below you can check out just some of the videos we have produced for Cardrona in recent times.
Cardrona asked us to create a short clip to promote the new trail “Prospector” as part of a series of videos promoting the bike park. We headed out onto the trails with James Mulachy (Cardrona), Alex Kinsley (Outside Sports) and Pheobe Coers (Yeti). They were all super keen to ride the new Prospector Trail.
We did a lap with the DJI Phantom 4 drone and a lap with the Sony FS5 & Glidecam HD200 for the close up slow motion shots. By having the wide aerials we could show off the location and the overall flow of the trails. That mixed with the ground cam footage gave us the ability to give textures and more of a first person view. All in all we loved this trail and quickly edited together this promotional clip for the Cardrona Bike Park.
This Is My Real Job – Jamie Greenway – Trail Builder
Check out how the magic happens up Cardrona during summer! There’s definitely some elbow grease involved with building our mountain bike trails but a fair amount of fun too! Cardrona asked us to film a video to showcase a day in the life of Jamie Greenway – Trail Builder.
Junior National Ski and Snowboard Championships
In the winter things look a little different. Cardrona’s Ski and snowboard facilities are world class and make for a perfect place for extreme sports filming. Many international competitions are held here including the Burton High Fives, NZ Freeski and Snowboard Junior Nationals.
Here is a video we produced for the Junior National Ski and Snowboard Championships…
The Bike Park Opening
The bike park opening was a big deal. The first ski and snowboard resort in the area to offer a year round pass and downhill mountain biking. They needed a promotional video to launch.
We produced a webisodic video series called “Stagging Around” filmed exclusively at Cardrona. We worked closely with the marketing department to film and edit a series that was fun, cheeky and a took a real look into a snowboarders season, while maintaining public decency and keeping it PG. Hamish “Buckwilde” Bilzie Martin was the host and guide. He has been riding in Wanaka for many years
Here is episode 4 of ‘Stagging Around’….
