Freeride World Tour takes extreme athletes to breathtaking heights

Freeskiing and snowboarding tour delivers stunning video straight from the mountainsides of Alaska using Adobe Creative Cloud and Premiere Pro CC

Forget the artificial jumps and groomed slopes of typical skiing and snowboarding venues. Freeriding takes these winter sports back to their roots by challenging athletes to master an all-natural mountain ridge. Competitors start at the summit and must make their way to the finish line, but each athlete must decide on their own route down the mountain. The result is an exciting and unique run every time.

The Swatch Freeride World Tour (FWT) pits top freeskiers and snowboarders from around the world against some of the most beautiful, untouched peaks across Europe and North America. For the 2015 world tour, FWT took its riders somewhere completely new: the mountains near Haines, Alaska. A small town in the Alaska panhandle, Haines boasts undeveloped mountain ranges and Pacific weather conditions that make it an ideal venue for freeriding.

David Arnaud will be presenting the session “Delivering Event Coverage from Remote Destinations with Creative Cloud” in the Adobe stand 7.G27 at IBC 2015 on Monday, Sept. 14th at 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm and Tuesday, Sept. 15th at 11:00 am.

Taking up the Alaskan challenge

FWT produces up to 45 hours of raw footage for each stop in the tour, with deliverables ranging from short web clips to hour-long TV digests. Highlights must be released just hours later, giving editors little time to comb through footage and start producing videos. As a result, FWT sets up a video production tent right on the side of the mountain and using a combination of Adobe Prelude CC for logging and ingest and Premiere Pro CC for editing they are able to turn edits around quickly.

Siân Fever, short-form aficionado

Top editor brings energy and organization to short-form projects with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Siân Fever will be presenting the session “How to Make It in Short-Form Video with Premiere Pro CC” in the Adobe stand 7.G27 at IBC 2015 on Friday, Sept. 11th at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm and Saturday, Sept. 12th at 10:30 am.

Siân Fever knew that she wanted to work in video production when she was just a teenager. She consumed a steady diet of MTV and gravitated towards behind-the-scenes videos featuring famed music video director Joseph Kahn talking about his work. After hearing raves about it from a fellow Blockbuster employee, she knew her path would involve film school.

Fever studied at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, the same school attended by alumni such as Adele and Amy Winehouse, and then Bournemouth University before taking her first job at MTV. Throughout her career, she has primarily focused on short-form content, and believes there is a lot to be gained by working in this genre.
