Octagon, one of the nation's leading sports marketing companies, hired Kitay Productions today to follow Olympic snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler as she spent the day on a media tour in New York City.
With just one business day's notice, Kitay Productions assembled a remote ENG crew in the Big Apple, and traveled to direct the work. The day began with Gretchen's live appearance on "Good Morning America" on ABC and continued with a magazine photo shoot at a hotel.
The captured footage, jointly owned by Octagon and Kitay Productions, will have national distribution and be available for sale following the Olympics.
Bleiler is a favorite to win the gold at Torino later this month in snowboarding competitions.
