Work with Me: Races & Events
Do you have an amazing event that deserves more attention? There may be a fit for me to create a film for my YouTube channel, along with related social media posts.
I’m mainly focused on races and events that offer unique storytelling opportunities. This could include having a remarkable history, being in an extraordinary location, or being a particularly difficult challenge.
How it Works
I would ask that entry fees to be covered, along with any direct costs I may incur immediately before or after the race, such as accommodations or transport. I may also require that my travel costs be covered as well (eg. flights, car rentals or airport transfers), depending on the location and timing of the event.
I also retain all creative control and rights to the resulting footage. This is not ‘work for hire’ or an exchange of services. The authenticity of my work comes from the fact that I tell my own story my own way. Having said that, I think you’ll see from my previous work that I always represent organizations and events fairly and in a positive light.
Below are a few examples of the films I’ve made recently in partnership with the event organizers.
Jeff Pelletier is a trail runner and filmmaker based in Vancouver, Canada. Often together with his girlfriend Audrée Lafrenière, he travels around the world seeking adventure in the mountains, while documenting it all on YouTube.
My YouTube channel has over 70,000 subscribers from around the world, and on average my event films get between 100,000 – 500,000 views on YouTube. Additionally, I license many of my films to VOD platforms such as HorizonSports.
My typical audience demographics on YouTube are as follows:
- 18-24 years: 7%
- 25-34 years: 32%
- 35-44 years: 30%
- 45-54 years: 20%
- 55+ years: 10%
- United States: 24%
- Canada: 14%
- United Kingdom: 8%
- Australia: 4%
- Germany: 4%
- France: 3%
