Commercial & TelevisionProspector

Grit and Thistle Film offers a wide range of services to commercial film projects, from full production to locations scouting. Recent projects include producing the commercial promos for The Weather Channel and their popular Prospectors show. For this shoot, we set up full video and still backcountry studios at 12,000 feet using 4WD trucks and ATVs, and provided a line producer, DIT, emergency medical staff, craft services and full equipment rental.

We also work with the production company making Prospectors, as Second Camera operators and ACs.

On a more regional level, we produced a 30 second spot that appeared on NBC and finish line jumbotrons during the USA Pro Challenge, the biggest road bike race in America. Shot on Red Epic and Canon HDSLR, we shot, wrote, edited on Premiere Pro and uploaded this television spot on a tight deadline.

For a recent energy bar shoot, we were asked to film slow motion scenes of one of the top endurance runners in the world. We used a Red Epic-X at 240 fps to capture the essence of the runner’s motion. We’ve also worked with Universal Studios on Fast and Furious 7 – Locations – in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and created several short films for Outside Television.

Services Grit and Thistle Film offers to commercial film shoots: Field Producing, Line Producing, Locations, Scouting, DP (Red Epic, Sony FS700 and soon Sony FS7, Canon HDSLR, Canon EOS C systems), 2nd Camera, AC, Professional and Creative Writing.
