I filmed the 27th St.Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow event on a 40cm thick frozen lake. It was a serious upgrade from my previous 7 years of filming the Polo event. This time around I had a very good second camera operator, a helicopter, steady cam system and 4 different cameras to help us cover all the angles.
The hardest thing about the job was the temperature on the lake. It was anything from -17ºC to -8ºC every day. With hard work we covered the event the best ever and tried extremely hard to be innovative with the camera angles. Filming from the perspective of rider and horse, I tried to bring out the passion behind the sport.
The official new website of the St. Moritz Polo club launches on Monday 14 Feb together with the official event film.
