Behind the Scenes

Shooting with Lindsey Vonn

by Colin Witherill
Warren Miller cinematographer Colin Witherill gives some behind the scenes details of his shoot with Lindsey Vonn.

I got the opportunity to join the Warren Miller crew for a shoot with gold medalist, Lindsey Vonn, during her home coming to Vail. Our time was quite limited with Lindsey due to her very busy schedule, but we lucked out with about 10 inches of fresh snow which should really make her segment shine. We had quite the large crew during the shoot; not usually the most efficient way to get shots, but despite the 4 on the Warren Miller crew, the Vail videographer, Vail Still photographer, Vail marketing director, ski patrol, Lindsey’s coach and Lindsey’s assistant, we managed to move around pretty well! We shot quite a mix of cameras (2 Arri S-16 SR2’s, Canon 7D, Sony Ex-1) which will be interesting to see how they all cut together. Despite Lindsey not having the opportunity to free ski during the last 12 years, (crazy huh?) she, unsurprising, seemed pretty darn comfortable and happy in the powder!
