The Changing Face of Action Sports Media

Friday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Four Seasons
San Jacinto
98 San Jacinto Blvd


The action sports media industry is in the midst of a major shift. Film, the long standing dominant medium for showcasing extreme sports and its stars, is no longer the only outlet. The explosion and success of action sports videos on the internet has proven that these sports are as mainstream as traditional sports. Teton Gravity Research has been on the cutting edge of adapting the film model into an intricate long tail content model that encompasses film, live events, social media, short form, syndicated content partnerships and editorial to capture and expand its audience across multiple platforms. Join Teton Gravity Research, athlete Angel Collinson and 60 Minutes Sports producer Keith Sharman as they discuss the changing face of action sports media.
