BKB Impact 2020
The story of the Impact 2020 Bouldering Competition; Brooklyn Boulders Sommerville’s largest selling climbing competition ever. This event was important not only because of the sheer volume of competitors, but because its existence is solely based off of giving women in climbing equal opportunities.
The BYB production team was brought in to film a behind the scenes documentary short highlighting the all-female route-setting team that was responsible for setting the competition, in addition to creating an event sizzle video to recap it’s success and keep attendees excited for future events at this location.
Filming throughout the week leading up to the event and a culminating 17 hour work-day capturing the event itself, we were able to capture all the materials we’d need to create these deliverables. The full documentary was privately screened for members of the BKB community to great reviews. The event was able to raise money to distribute among the setters involved and charities of their choosing. Check out the event video and private screening teaser below!
