Team Dubsatch sweeps Eye of the Condor in La Parva, Chile

August 5th, 2011 by

The inaugural Eye of the Condor event wrapped up yesterday in La Parva, Chile and all parties involved agree it was a smashing success.

The five teams invited were comprised of athletes, photographers and videographers from all reaches of the globe; the groups were given five days to produce a 3-5 minute video, in addition to a photo portfolio.

In the end it was team Dubsatch who came out on top in both the overall video and photo categories. Their road to the title was shaky, however, as both their cinematographer and photographer pulled out just one week before the event began. Instead of throwing in the towel, they opted to adopt two Chilean locals to their squad; the newcomers had an uncanny knowledge of the terrain and the surroundings, and their expertise helped elevate team Dubsatch to the top.
