A year ago I shot a video not knowing that I would be re-editing and re shooting parts of it to make a finalize the opener for this years Ammunition Conference. We used all of the footage in the promotional work, then when it came time to the conference we added in one new final scene. We needed a reason for Aaron to jump, and what better reason then to save the person he loves.
Cassey and Aaron are troopers!! The final shots of the day consisted of them jumping into ice cold pool water, in 60 degree weather. I was in the water ( thankfully in a wet suit) and I was still freezing, but thats what made this one of the best experiences of my life. Also it was a great opportunity to once again collaborate and shoot side by side with Andrew Montero, who also spent the next 13.5 hours at my house editing with me through the night.
This video is different than conference openers in the past, but it was nice to change it up and open the conference in a way no one was expecting.
Special thanks to Mike and Kimberly Loche for letting use their pool, and wet suit.
