Background


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.
