DAS BOAT, SEASON 2 | MEATEATER

DAS BOAT, SEASON 2
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series



We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of the Off The Grid Studios team that produced the second season of Das Boat for MeatEater, Inc. This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with an incredible challenge, not to mention the remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are, thank you!

“Last year we jumped into the deep end with MeatEater on a creative endeavor to produce 6 episodes of a show called Das Boat within a considerably tight turnaround timeline. We pushed our team and delivered a respectable season. You can watch it online on MeatEeater’s Youtube channel.

Roughly 9 months ago, we engaged “the team” in the production & collaborative creation of Season II, with sufficient time to exceed our previous season’s show in every way imaginable.

3 months into logistical planning – all of our efforts were confounded by a global catastrophe. Presented with a crossroads, we were left with two options:

Crumble under the weight of uncertainty, the unknown and unsurmountable challenges, and bail … or get the team on the open road, overcome and just kick ass.

We decided on the latter.

Without further adieu, Season 2, Episode 1 is available now on the MeatEater YouTube channel. Check out Das Boat Season II. New episodes premiere every Sunday. We sincerely hope you enjoy the pride of our blood, sweat, and tears during this challenging year.”

DAS BOAT – NEW SERIES FROM THE MEATEATER FISHING DEPT.

DAS BOAT, SERIES
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series



We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of the Off The Grid Studios team that produced the new fishing series for MeatEater, Inc. It was a few months of long field days, brutal heat, insane humidity, overheating batteries, a few police officers (love you guys), angry non-Florida country club locals, biting bugs, sleepless nights, boiled peanuts, great memories, wonderful people, breathtaking views, wild nature, and interesting characters.

This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with a remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are. Thank you!

One boat, five fisheries, ten anglers, 2500 miles…unlimited bad ideas. In this new series, Das Boat, MeatEater revives an old aluminum boat from a backyard in Texas and explores angling opportunities with some of our favorite folks. The first episode of Das Boat aired on August 15th on YouTube and Facebook. New episodes come out every Thursday. Yes, it’s FREE!

ANIMATION + GRAPHICS | COMMERICAL AD

FINATIC PERFORMANCE ANGLING
commercial work

BGP member Sean McCormick just finished up his latest project, “Finatic Technology Series”, for client Finatic Performance Angling.

Handcrafted work is what we do here at BGP and Sean our go-to man to getting things like technical 3D motion graphic edits completed. Sean, along with Justin Meyer, produced a series of technical commercial pieces full of motion and animation graphics along with a few clever camera tricks. Projects like this are not always easy, being able to meet with clients and understand what they are looking for and then delivering above and beyond takes time, effort and skill. Our clients at Finatic Tackle were thrilled with the final product series, which means, the fellas can now go fishing.

Las Pampas Lodge 2018 Video and Brochure

PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA
New Media for Las Pampas Lodge

Our team headed to Las Pampas Lodge this past spring for our annual Argentina trip. Las Pampas Lodge is located in a charming old traditional town surrounded by towering peaks and small, remote waters with great hatches and willing fish. Tucked away in the heart of the Patagonia, this small town certainly has a big fishing problem.

Many thanks to the lodge team for their time and energy. We truly enjoyed filming this winter with the LPL crew and look forward to our annual return in 2018.

MOTION SLIDESHOW | GAUCHO – PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA

MOTION SLIDESHOW | GAUCHO
Patagonia, Argentina

In the spring of March 2013 a small group set off on an angling adventure to remote inner regions of Patagonia, Argentina. While there our group was invited to help rope and brand calfs with the local gauchos, a rare and special offer. It was a great experience shared by all… one nobody will forget.

Las Pampas Lodge, Argentina

I’m a fan of slideshows, but I do get restless with them quickly. When I was asked to put together a photo slideshow I called Sean McCormick to spruce it up a little. Here are just a few of the many images from a recent trip to Argentina. It’s something a little different; perhaps you’ll like it.

A few of these small backcountry river systems have seen little anglers. The hikes can be quite long and somewhat grueling but all worth every step. One particular spring creek held 6 pound browns and was only 5 feet wide. Mouse patterns were very deadly in most of these types of areas. The fish were feisty and the eats were explosive. It was truly a fantastic trip, one I’ll never forget. I can’t wait to go back next year.
