Its been a while since our last post, so I thought I’d put a nice clip from The Players out for your entertainment. Check out Dave Graham on the first ascent of The Island V15. Be sure to get your eyes on the rest of the Dave Graham action, plus Chris Sharma, Alex Puccio, Daniel Woods, and more. DVD’s are available internationally available at www.BSProductions.us

In only a few days of filming, Daniel Woods crushed the boulders in Moe’s Valley! We were there to capture all the action, including a few V13 first ascents (Magic Touch and Escape Artist Low)! Moe’s Valley is a great sandstone bouldering area right outside of St. George, Utah. Only a few hours north of Vegas and a few hours south of Salt Lake. If you’re passing through on I-15, be sure to make some time to check it out! Or if you’re bouldering at Joe’s Valley and get snowed out, Moe’s will most likely have great conditions. The rock quality is some of the best I’ve seen and there are a range of problems for every ability. Here are a few screen shots from Daniel’s segment in The Players. Be sure to check out the DVD, available at www.ThePlayersMovie.com

We started shooting Daniel Woods’ segment of The Players in Boulder Canyon, Colorado. The plan was to shoot the whole segment in Boulder Canyon.  Daniel would repeat all the canyon’s hardest problems, plus attempt to send a long standing project! We were psyched, but the weather in Boulder was getting too warm for hard granite bouldering. After shooting for one day and nailing killer footage of Free Range v12, Daniel decided he wanted to head out to Southern Utah with the rest of his crew!

A few days later, I packed up my car and headed out there as well. You can see footage of all the action that went down in Southern Utah in The Players, now available on DVD at www.ThePlayersMovie.com. For now, here’s the footage of Daniel on Free Range that did not make the cut into the final film. Enjoy!

The third in our series of The Players desktop wallpapers is now available for download HERE!  This is Alex Puccio bouldering Dead Serious (v10) in Hueco Tanks, Texas. This photo was originally shot by Andy Mann, while shooting for our film The PlayersMarc Russo adapted the image to the grafiti style for the inside DVD packaging art. Then I addapted this art into the wallpaper! Be sure to check out Alex Puccio’s segment in The Players. I shot Alex as she crushed Trice V12 on Flagstaff Mountain, Colorado.  We then followed her on a quick one week trip to Hueco, where she did numerous V10’s, including Dead Serious and Power of Silence! Alex also put a really strong effort into Slashface V13, doing all the moves except for one! Help support our productions and pick up your copy of The Players today at www.BSProductions.us

The second wallpaper in my series from The Players is of Joe Kinder on Ghostdance V6 at the Millenium Boulder in Colorado. This boulder problem was not featured in the film, however, its graphic nature worked well for the grafiti style DVD cover and artwork. The photo, originally shot for the cover of Urban Climber, was applied to the 3d brickwall by using a combination of techniques in Illustrator, Photoshop, and Maya. This gave us a full 3d model of the wall for the films opening motion graphics. We then could apply different lighting affects and see how it looked on the wall. Maya is a pretty amazing program. Thanks to Marc Russo for graphics skills! I’ve taken the films cover art and adapted it into a downloadable desktop wallpaper. More wallpapers coming soon!

The new Urban Climber Photo Annual just dropped and I’m psyched to have my shot of Chris Sierzant rockin the cover! I shot this about a year ago during a long weekend trip to the South. In three days, we shot portraits for the cover of the UC Interview Issue, filmed the first ascent of the Ebola Project for MVM, shot photos of The Orb at Rocktown, Apes on Acid at Castle Rock, and some bouldering at Little Rock City (The Stone Fort).  Chris is always great to work with, as he puts in the extra effort needed to take the product to the next level. Puck up your copy of UC today!

To get this shot, we headed out to Little Rock City in Tennessee at about 6am to catch the early morning light. The sun was actually only lighting the tree in the background. I used two AB800’s to light Chris and the boulder, adding warming gels to balance the colors. I wanted to incorperate that colorful tree in the background, so I shot with a fisheye lens to bend the tree and frame the boulder. It’s always been cool to see my work on covers, but a photo annual cover has always been a goal. Its an issue all about what I do, photography. So having my shot represent the whole issue gets me psyched! I can’t wait to check out the rest of the issue!

Check out the commercial we recently produced for our latest partner Deadpoint Magazine! Footage from The Players and Spray. Beats and voiceover by O-Dub.

We’re putting the finishing touches on our new film The Players.  I’ve been working on Alex Puccio’s segment all day and am really psyched on how it’s coming together! Alex continues to forge her own way and push the standards of female bouldering. I shot her on the first female ascent of Trice V12 at Flagstaff Mountain, Co.

Soon after, Alex headed down to Hueco Tanks in Texas for a short getaway. Our cameras were there to document this trip. Alex didn’t waste any time, giving really solid attempts at Slashface V13. Although she was unsuccessful this trip, she was able to do all the moves except for one. In only 30 min of working the problem!

On the last day of the trip, Alex decided she wanted to return to Power of Silence V10. She had tried this problem during her last trip to Hueco and came pretty close. After numerous attempts, it all came together! Be sure to check out all the action in our new movie The Players, coming to DVD this May.
