Josh Haskins, a cameraman and producer for Warren Miller Entertainment gave us four tips to make your ski movie go from YouTube embarrassment to the next “All I Can.”
Location, location, location
The first step is to pick a location that’s both visually stunning and conducive to filming. Haskins recommends taking care of ground logistics first: that means getting permission from resorts and securing forest service permits, sometimes both.
The biggest snags in a production come before injury-inducing wipeouts are even possible. Make sure to touch base with resort coordinators, the forest service, and tour operators to get logistics dialed in.
