View of Colorado Avenue - Downtown, Telluride. Looking into the boxed canyon.
Trivia: In 1884, Telluride became a haven for Butch Cassidy, where he enjoyed the saloons full of "wild living and corruption". Get the tie-in to Sundance and our founder?
Telluride. It is beyond doubt one of my favorite places. Top 3. For over a decade, my family has skied there every winter. Then, why not? Let’s shoot there in August. After all, the saying among the locals goes something like this: “Come in the winter, you won’t want to leave. Come in the summer, you won’t leave.” After this shoot, I see what they mean.
Some of the highlights from our trip:
|One of the cabins on the property where we shot, a bit out of the town of Telluride. Imagine waking up to that view each day?|
|It takes a village...shooting at the ranch. There are usually 10-12 crew members on set for any one shot|
|Look at these glamorous dressing rooms|
|In town shot from our hotel. An unusual view of Lift 8 with no snow|
|Rush hour at the ranch|
|There are plenty of humongous homes here, but how great is this original local's cabin, right in town|
|We're not in Kansas...A moody moment featuring our faithful Penske|
|An Andy Goldworthy-inspired moment on location, courtesy of our Sets and Props Department. Alas, it never made it into the catalog photography, so a call-out on the blog will have to suffice|
|Our crew members always find the best places to grab a bite|
|It's a wrap! The sun sets on another successful shoot. Cheers!|
