All Summer long I have been going to the AST Dew Tour for work. We made stops in Baltimore, Cleveland, Portland (which I missed due to the Olympics), SLC, & Orlando. For those who care, I helped coordinate the International Feed of the event. While the show aired on NBC, it was simultaneously airing on Eurosport and Fox Sports Australia. I helped ensure that they had everthing they needed; Sat. Coordinates, VOD Bonus Material, etc.
That boring stuff being said, here is a brief photo essay of the final stop of the 2008 tour:
BMX Dirt is one of my favorite events. The hotel I stayed at is back right. That is a commute I could learn to love. Not to mention you can go home to take a shize.
Here is the arena setup from the nose bleeds. It didn’t take long to figure out why this section was called the “O-Zone”
Our NBC home away from home. If you call the production manager’s office in NY, the phone rings here. I love how that works.
See Jack’s Production Trailer, straight out of an Ikea catalog.
Production Truck 5 minutes before we are on air. Shockingly also 5 minutes before all hell breaks loose.
I’m not much of an FMX fan anymore, but it is very photogenic…Did I fuck up here?
