2012 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination
Take It Live Productions was nominated for the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year award. Its World Open Water Swimming Association nomination reads, TakeItLive has solved the frustrating technological problem of bringing the beauty of open water swimming and the athleticism of its partipants to the world. Chris Lundie and his brother Nathan capture scintillating footage at ocean and lake swims, both from right on the water and via interviews onshore. Filming live from boats on the course, whether ocean, lake or river, the brotherly duo immediately stream it live for race directors and governing bodies throughout the United States to the delight of family, friends and fans. For their ability to work in dynamic, harsh, challenging conditions, for solving technical hurdles at an affordable price, and for their remarkable ability to bring the exploits of swimmers far from shore directly to the laptops and mobile devices with audio and promotions, TakeItLive is a worthy nominee for the 2012 WOWSA Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
