In the Heart of Crankworx

Bridgette is completing her last course in the Marketing Media Manager Diploma program. She chose to use her new skills learned in at WAS to work at the Crankworx Bike Festival working with the broadcast production team. What a great way to do your co-op hours! The Crankworx World Tour is a multi-stop series of mountain bike festivals, bringing together the best mountain bike athletes to compete in elite-level environment. This is just one of the many events that are produced here in Whistler.

The Crankworx Crew

“Doing an internship with the broadcast production team has been an amazing experience! From assisting in the finish coral with athlete interviews, spotting for cameras and listening to the live broadcast from the TV truck for the Canadian DH, being front row of every live event and watching the planning and logistics to bring the broadcast to the screen with BoomBox Group working alongside the guys from Redbull TV has been incredible. Every day was different but always fast paced, exciting and something new. 5 live broadcasts over 7 days. Watching how replays are done on EVS and the engineering team, all of the camera guys, chaperoning world class athletes to interviews to make content, it’s been unreal to see how many people and steps it takes to make a broadcast.”
– Bridgette Dobinson, Marketing & Media Manager student at WAS.



Crankworx + Class = Pure Vibes

We snuck out of class to watch and evaluate the Crankworx Event, The Ultimate Pump Track Challenge, Pro Finals – LIVE BROADCAST!
It was a great time and very informative to actually see events from a planning point of view including safety, structure, activity line-up, capturing video and more.

We met up with WAS alumni Joey, who was working one of the video cameras for the event. A photo below with Joey and Lore, a current WAS student.
