The Grey Cup Celebration video

Travis Lulay and the Grey CupIt all started with the case of the missing Grey Cup Mountain Top Video Celebration (http://www.cbc.ca/strombo/sports-2/the-case-of-the-missing-grey-cup-mountain-top-video-celebration.html) where heli pilot Brad Friesen and CFL and BC Lion James Yurichuk took the Grey Cup into the back country for an epic mountain top celebration.  As the footage was lost later that day in a late night drinking session they made a public plea for anyone who may have found the SD cards used in the cameras.

As this plea was unsuccessful they decided to re-create the day with a full on camera crew and Loaded Gun Productions Inc was called in to capture the day.  It was an early morning and fog was everywhere.  So foggy that the helicopter that LGP President Jeremy Deichen was in took off and was grounded with in minutes due to visibility.  Waiting that out about 2 hours later they were able to take off and find a way through and above the cloud cover where it was an absolutely crisp beautiful blue sky.  The conditions were perfect and was an epic day.  “ By far best day I have ever had filming out of a helicopter which I have done many of times but nothing like this” Says Jeremy Deichen from Loaded Gun Productions Inc. “The dynamic of having 2 helicopters with a great group of guys was something I have never seen.  Usually you rent a helicopter to film a motorcycle or backcountry snowmobiler but trying to film a helicopter from another helicopter was something else” Adds the videographer.

Jeremy has edited together his angles in a You Tube video.

But since then they have gone up one more time filming and a best of video was completed.
