PRIME TO GO – BROADCAST SERVICES
We’ve got it covered.
For over 20 years, Prime To Go has been bringing stories and events to life. From world-wide action sports programming to pharmaceutical commercials, live event production to financial videos for Fortune 500 companies; no matter the scale or location of your project, Prime To Go has the experience and resources to deliver.
CASE STUDY – THE RED BULL SIGNATURE SERIES
In 2012, Prime To Go Broadcast Services helped launch the most viewed action sports television series in history. From the challenging peaks of the Canadian backcountry to the sandstone cliffs of Utah, the Red Bull Signature Series features innovative competitions from around the globe airing on NBC and the NBC Sports Network. As producer of host stand-ups, editor of eleven episodes and show packager, Prime To Go was instrumental to the success of the series first year.
Crashed Ice World Championships
One part bobsled, two parts hockey, and all-over insanity, the brand new television series kicked off in Saint Paul, Minnesota at the Crashed Ice World Championships.
From scripting through post production, Prime To Go was involved in all aspects of the series launch. Our live event team produced the party for the more than 100,000 spectators while our television crew wrote and produced all stand-ups with Signature Series host Sal Masekela. Shooting in temperatures of 10 below freezing, Prime To Go utilized a Sony F3 package with teleprompter mounted on a 18′ Jimmy Jib. Back at the studio the edit began. Four hours of live competition with seven ISO cams were combined with graphics and sponsorship pieces to create the final show for delivery to the network.
Red Bull Cold Rush
Ever hike a fourteener? Ever do that with a jib? In several feet of fresh powder? Yeah, not easy. But a helicopter sure does help!
Red Bull Cold Rush is a renowned freeski event that pits twenty-three of the world’s most daring athletes in a competition to vie for the distinction of best all-around backcountry skier. Part of Colorado’s Silverton Mountain, the summit of Storm Peak is the highest … and steepest … of any ski area in North America.
It was here that the Prime To Go crew filmed host Sal Masekela in picture perfect powder. In post the event was packaged together, graphics and color correction were added, and the final show was sent on it’s way for national air on NBC.
X-Fighters World Championships: Dubai
Nothing quite says premium like a monolithic stadium built on the beach in Dubai, and what better way to kick off the premier freestyle motocross competition series. Prime To Go was on hand with a dolly and 18 foot jib for the 2012 X-Fighters World Championship series to film the host standups for the NBC Sports Network broadcasts. In post the events were packaged together and delivered not just for national air, but also reformatted and delivered for air internationally throughout Europe, South America, Australia and the Middle East.
We won’t brag about our dirt bike riding through the Arabian Peninsula following the event, but needless to say it’s a good time.
