With one event already under our belts, it was time for our team to dive into another Power To Play event - this time in the beautiful setting of Vancouver's Stanley Park! 

Once again, the Power To Be team was instrumental in pulling off this production, ensuring we had the chance to capture key teams in action and the ever-important course map to help our crew zip from location to location throughout the day. 

With our camera stabilizing gimbal on hand, we were able to record some dynamic sprinting sequences as the teams made their way across the finish line. And of course, we had to ensure we were collecting the sounds of the moment as well - and used both on camera microphones and a standalone boom mic to capture the audio that would really make the final project come to life in editing!

In total, the event raised $310,000 in support of inclusive adventures rooted in nature, and we couldn't be more proud to support the cause!

Power To Be is recognized as one of the most influential charities on the province, and when you’re fortunate enough to attend one of their events it’s not hard to see why. Each year the organization helps hundreds of kids explore the outdoors, regardless of their physical or mental abilities – and the key annual fundraiser for these programs is Power To Play.

This spring, event organizers asked our team to get involved and help capture the unforgettable energy of the day. With 35 corporate teams competing in a course that challenges even the most seasoned obstacle course races, we can’t think of a cooler way to raise money for the cause.

Our crew set out to cover the 10 kilometre course with an oh-so-necessary golf cart at our disposal. Between lugging equipment through the woods and running through fields with a gimbal in hand, our day was still only half as strenuous as those in the thick of the competition.

We did our best to collect the unique and interesting angles that would differentiate this year’s video from those of the past, and paid special attention to the sounds of the day as well – capturing clean audio that would be an integral part of the final edit. And arriving at the finish line to watch exhausted teams clamour out of the water and over the final wall to ring the bell made for some of the most rewarding images we’ve shot to date.

In editing we quickly pieced the best moments together for a public release just days after the event, which we’re proud to say raised  $223,000 for the great work carried out by our friends at Power To Be. Our crew will be back on the course for the Vancouver event in September, and we’re already looking forward to it!
