Canada’s finest deserve the best. So when we were shipped off to Toronto to photograph top athletes from Canada’s Olympic Team we knew we were in for something big. CBC (Canada Broadcasting Corporation) came to us with a vision to inspire viewers and rally Canadians for the amazing talent they were bringing to the coming Olympic Games. So we created a powerful stage to instill Canadian pride for these exceptional sportsmen (and women). We suspended huge light rigs from above, rigged up a dark enclosed backdrop and lowered our cameras to the floor to convey the incredible power and stature that comes with being a world-class athlete. Additionally we employed virtual camera and frozen motion as we dropped snow while they waved flags and posed triumphantly. The result was a dramatic, statuesque delivery of Canada’s most athletic, inspiring for both Canadian and Non-Canadian alike.
