Tahoe Production House recently wrapped production on producing a 2018 “Athletes for the Earth” PSA for Earth Day Network. We shot on location at Snowbird Utah with Louie Vito. We had a great crew for the shoot, and shot beautiful 4K footage for the spot. We worked closely with Louie for his thoughts on Global issues, and what he is doing personally to try and make a difference.
He rose to prominence on the professional snowboarding scene at age 17 by completing a backside 1080 at the Australian Open Snowboarding Championships – making him the first rider to successfully pull off the complex move in an Australian competition. This helped propel Vito to the top of the podium, capturing his first of two consecutive championships there.
Vito is currently the reigning Winter Dew Tour Overall Champion and U.S. Grand Prix Overall Champion.
Vito also competed on the show “Dancing With the Stars.” Partnered with professional dancer Chelsie Hightower, he rehearsed for the show at the same time that he was training for the Olympics[when?]. Three months later, he represented the United States at the 21st Olympic Games in Vancouver.
Production went very smooth and Louie Vito really shined through as an ambassador for our Earth. The produced spots are below, take a look and give them a share and a like!
Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in nearly 195 countries to build environmental democracy. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. We work through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.
