Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition “Olympic Day 2012”

Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition “Olympic Day 2012” from Bryon Evans on Vimeo.

On June 22nd I had the privilege of documenting Olympic Day for the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition. Olympic Day is the anniversary of the modern day Olympics and is celebrated by cities around the world. The Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition put on a wonderful event helping to spread awareness about the Olympics and the campaign to bring the Winter Olympics back to the Reno/Tahoe area. The public had the opportunity to pole vault, snowboard and ski, play soccer, run marathons and participate in many other Olympic events.

One of the exciting experiences for me was the opportunity to meet and interview Olympians and Gold medal winners like Jill Savery, Tamara McKinney and the highly decorated gymnast Vitaly Scherbo.

I also had the pleasure of working with the amazingly talented photographer Chris Holloman. Chris’s photography, which I used throughout the entire video complemented the footage so well making for a fun and interesting mini-doc.
