Bryce & Escalante Light Jogging Series – Casey Fields

September 17–19, 2020

Bryce Canyon’s crimson spires are both incomparably beautiful and easily accessible–ideally suited to a light jogging series. The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is companion to Bryce in proximity and visual appeal, but boasts a completely unique character of its own. Deep canyons, cliffs, and gorges grant this area both visual impact and surprising diversity. For relatively flat terrain, access during the current pandemic, and a variety of visually stunning locales, it doesn’t get much better than this. In just three days of production, Casey will take us on an adventure through 75 million-year-old paleontology, coral pink dunes, slot canyons, a ghost town movie set and across some of the most stunning landscapes nature has to offer.

Location Brief

Video 1: Red Canyon

Kanab’s Peek-a-Boo Canyon (Red Canyon) is an incredible slot canyon off the beaten path as it takes some fun, sandy off-roading to get into the canyon itself. The deep orange, sandstone walls are most scenic for photography along with ancient Moqui steps made by Puebloans, which are hand and toe holds carved into vertical sandstone surfaces.

Video 2: Coral Pink Sand Dunes

These unique, warm-pink-colored sand dunes feel like shifting water beneath you, sitting next to red sandstone cliffs from the Middle Jurassic geologic period. Winds can move these mountains and hills up to 50 feet each year.

Video 3: Toadstool Hoodoos

Just as the name suggests, these rock formations resemble mushrooms or fondly referred to as “ghosts” and “goblins” that can be explored in just 1.5 miles roundtrip.

Video 4: Paria

This wilderness area full of unique plateaus and deep canyons covers area in both northern Arizona and southern Utah. It is one of the longest and deepest slot canyons in the world. A natural film set, where more Westerns were filmed than anywhere outside of California. Some include: The Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke, The Apple Dumpling Gang and many more.

Video 5: Bryce Canyon Basin

A forested plateau, having undergone freezes and thaws for millions of years makes this desert floor a hotspot for winter sports. Historical evidence shows that people have been fascinated with this area for at least 10,000 years; Paleo peoples hunted here towards the end of the Ice Age and later on, was harvested by Pueblo and Paiute peoples and Mormon Pioneers.

Video 6: Bryce Canyon Rim

At an elevation of 8,000 to 9,000 feet, this expansive alpine environment reserve in southern Utah has formed natural, colorful limestone amphitheaters and spire-shaped formations, making for impressive overlooks at sunrise and sunset.

Video 7: Grosvenor Arch

A rare massive arch, reaching 150 feet above ground that is actually a double sandstone arch with two windows you can walk underneath for a beautiful sky view. It was named after National Geographic Society president Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor in 1949.

Video 8: Cockscomb

Featured in Utah’s Colorado Plateau region, natural wear and tear of this steep strata became a long ridge, resembling the colorful “comb” of a rooster’s head. Both visitors and geologists come from around the world to experience it because of its impressive geologic history also known as “Utah’s Pyramids.”

Photography

Still Photos are just as important as the workouts videos themselves! If we don’t have killer photo thumbnails for each workout, our users won’t select the workout and will never get to experience the program. This means we will block time in each workout to capture still photography (i.e. 20 minutes).

IMAGE USESHOTLISTFORMAT / SPECS
• Thumbnails on the machine console.
• Marketing materials.
• Social media.
• 4-6 awesome photos per workout. Shot before, during, or after the workout. We like variety – action shots are great!
• Landscape images.
• Cultural images.
• Mostly landscape with sharp background.
• Use flash to fill in shadows.
• Subject middles, left, right (for cropping and overlay print).
• Trainer Clothing to match each workout.
• Raw originals and edits provided.
• Sync date and time on cameras + GPS location. and reset image numbering to 0.
