Outdoorgames MédéO : The perfect shot

Few words to introduce the "MedeO’z movie", made for the Outdoorgames at Chamonix. The idea was: Seven teams of film production companies had to create three differents projects in only five days!!!!

  • A 5-minute short film
  • A photo gallery
  • A 1-minute making-of short film

Our idea was to combine all the projects in one, instead of doing three separate projects.
We approached this contest like a global concept, relating the film, the photo and the making-of.

  • A 5-minute short film movie featuring 5 different sports: mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, paragliding and base jumping. All the footage and editing had to be done in five days, from Monday to Friday and had to be shot in the Mount Blanc range.

    The idea was to tell the story of our photographer, who wanted to take the 5 sports in one picture, instead of taking one picture of each sport. This picture took us a lot of work and energy!!

  • Photographers of each team had to take 20 pictures, with at least one picture of each sport.
    The ‘project’ of our photographer was to shoot the 5 sports, but in one picture.

    • 3/ THE MAKING-OF :
    • Then check out the “Making-of” short, the logical conclusion to this first film.

      The rules of the making-of competition were to create a 1 minute short film, including footage of the movie creation, the backstage of the film and the Nissan car loaned to use for the week. As you can see, everything is connected, and that’s what we wanted to do.

    • 4/ PICTURES :

    Thanks again to the crew, who got really involved in the project, even late into night!
    Thanks to MedeO, who really managed the creation of the film.

    A huge thanks to Liv, who really got into the moment, ice and alpine climbing with both a photographer and a filmmaker. Not an easy task!!!!

    Thanks to Tony, the spirit and star of the film. His hard work helped bring the film together.
    It’s sometimes easier to be an elite athlete than to be a great actor!!
