07 Dec New York Video Crew On the Ice with Olympians and TSN
Our New York video crew, Reid Petro, partnered with TSN: The Sports Network on a special piece following Olympic figure skaters Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje as they prepare for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Olympic Figure Skaters Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje
Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje are two-time World medalist Canadian figure skaters. For this piece, we filmed as they decided to change their free dance just one month prior to Skate Canada. They called it a “labor of love,” especially with the 2018 Olympics right around the corner. The new piece they’re dancing is all about a love story that doesn’t have a happy ending. Thankfully for us and TSN, the shoot and final piece did!
Go Behind the Scenes with TSN: The Sports Network
Our New York video crew got an exclusive behind the scenes look into the day to day lifestyle of Weaver and Poje through the lens with TSN. The day started at an ice rink in Hackensack, New Jersey where we filmed the couple as they ran through their routines, strategized and practiced select sections of their piece. After a long morning at the rink, we traveled to lower Manhattan where we filmed the couple during an outfit fitting session. It was a fun and interesting workout trying to keep up with Olympic athletes on a camera all day. They are non-stop and go-go-go!
It was so motivating to experience what these athletes go through to be the best of the best. Spoiler alert: it’s a lot of hard work and discipline. We have a lot of respect for that kind of work ethic at Go To Team. It was a pleasure working with TSN: The Sports Network.
