"Alaska Downhill Brigade" is a fully self funded project that JGS Concepts and High Peaks Productions is working on in Alaska. We went out the end of July to "Alyeska Ski Resort" and started this project. We had four filmers, two photographers and some awsome downhill riders to kickstart this project. With Alyeska Resort opening the mountain for us to set up film rigs and get prepared, this was just the start of this adventure. We set up our prototype that JGS Concepts has been working on. This prototype was a five hundred foot cable rig in the trees as a zipline system for filming the downhill mountain bike riders at full speeds.
The day we filmed at Alyeska was one of the nicest bluebird days we had all summer long, making the video footage turn out amazing to work with.
From Alyeska, two weeks later a few of us decided to continue this project by heading north towards Healy, Alaska and meet up with Carlos who has been creating Downhill trails for the last nine years with downhill addictions. We were completely blown away with the trail system that was created. We set up two cable zip line systems in the trees and continued to help build on the trails for filming while we waited for the weather to change so we could do some filming. If you follow the links after this small video teaser you will be able to see some of the video from the two systems we made in the trees.
Since the start of this project we have been out numerous times to film and also continue to set up different areas all over Alaska for next summers continued project. We will be launching our first full Webisode no later then October 5, 2012 from our video session out at Alyeska. With winter right around the corner, we will be continuing this project with some fat bike riding in the winter on some of the same and also new trails systems that have never been seen on film before.
We are starting to pick up some backing and sponsorships to help make this project an actual reality for all the people who have been involved from the start.
JGS Concepts has been working with Contour video cameras since the winter of 2011/2012. Contour makes a great "Point of View" Camera that we are pretty glad to have along with much of the filming we do. With out the Contour camera we would not be able to capture some of the video we have. To see more about Contour visit:
There is much more to this story but for now this is all I have time to write. If you see this video and are interested in becoming a backer or sponsor for our future project that we have dedicated much of our own time and money into feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
