In April 2013, supporters of Denver Mountain Parks, Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS), and Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) gathered at Red Rocks Amphitheatre Visitor Center to celebrate a century of protected places to play. The supporters wanted a video to highlight the history of the organizations and their commitment to keeping parks and open spaces available to all citizens. They enlisted All Terrain Studios to produce the 10-minute video.

There was no script going into this project and that’s exactly what¬†the clients wanted. They felt¬†the final video should be created from a dozen or so interviews with key employees and historians. The sound bites would be supported with historic photos and b-roll we were to shoot. Our Director of Photography (DP) setup and filmed over a dozen interviews during¬†the course of three¬†months. He¬†visited as many locations throughout¬†the front range of Denver, Colorado.

While our DP¬†was on the road, our motion graphic artist scanned in dozens of early and mid-20th-century postcards then created subtle animations within the illustrated scenes. The animations included a line of Model-T’s driving down¬†Lookout Mountain and a little girl’s hat ribbon blowing in the breeze. The animations were subtle and¬†delightful.

Several layers of approval were needed before the final version could be aired publicly. Our years of experience with government agencies and non-profits helped us navigate this phase of the process with patience and a smile. In the end, the audience and the client were thrilled.
