Truth in Motion: The U.S. Ski Team's Road to Vancouver

Wolfgang Held worked last fall in Switzerland and Austria, together with a full crew of cinematographers, to make a documentary about the training of the US Ski Team. It's Truth in Motion: The U.S. Ski Team's Road to Vancouver, a movie telling the unique stories of these elite athletes as they prepare for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

The experience of filming this movie was also unique: it's so great to be so close to the ski team as they work out, to follow them with the camera, to immerse in their universe! I know now very well Wolfgang Held and I envy him for all his filming experiences, near the Olympic team, or on a carrier, or in Beijing in an old German neighborhood, or in Bucharest following the rough life of some kids... and all over the world!

The movie will air first January 30 at 8pm EST on NBC, followed by an appearance on the USA Network on February 6 at 5pm EST. It will also run three times in primetime on the Universal Sports Network.
