Jeffersonville, Vt. (for immediate release) – On the heels of the successful launch of BASECAMP TV, an instructional, online video series, Backcountry Magazine is seeking proposals for film projects, webisode campaigns and video series to be filmed this winter and released in fall 2017 through Backcountry’s digital channels.
“Filmmakers are always coming to us, looking to reach our audience,” says Backcountry Editor in Chief Tyler Cohen. “Now, like with BASECAMP TV, we want to get involved with a select few projects from the start, to help them gain the support, resources and exposure they’re looking for.”
BASECAMP TV, an 11-part, instructional video series, was produced in collaboration with Noah and Jonah Howell and hosted by Andrew McLean. The four- to five-minute videos, published weekly to backcountrymagazine.com, regularly reached Backcountry’s social audience of more than 90,000.
“This project showed our capacity to work with filmmakers, producers, talent and advertisers and net serious exposure,” says Height of Land CEO Adam Howard. “Now we want to expand with new projects and series.”
Projects must be compelling, timely and unique with a strong backcountry hook. Any angle—instruction to profiles to destination features—is welcome. Submissions should include a description of the project and scope, a lineup of team members involved, a proposed timeline for filming and production, examples of prior work and an estimated budget. Send proposals to Louise Lintilhac (email@example.com) with subject line “Backcountry Video Pitch” by February 24 for consideration.
For more than 20 years, Backcountry Magazine has been dedicated to not just fueling stoke but to empowering skiers and snowboarders to travel safely in the backcountry. In each issue, you’ll find more than amazing stories and photographs from around the untracked world—you’ll also find educational pieces and the latest on gear and technology.
