Sportel: ‘Colors of Winters’ Takes Slow-Mo Kudo

Monaco’s Sportel gathers broadcasters, sport media right Holders

MONACO—Short “Colors of Winters” has nabbed Sportel’s Georges Bertellotti Golden Podium Award. Directed by d.p. and producer Max Larsson, and produced by Sweden’s Husky Motion, “Winters” strikingly captures the majesty, joy and energy of surfing giant waves. Images were shot in December 2014 at Nazare’s Praia do Norte, a beach 80 miles north of Lisbon, and in Peniche, also in Portugal, where some of Europe’s best waves are formed.

Always loving to work out in the nature, “My goal from now on is to work on bigger commercials in the U.S. I’m right now in the process of getting an agency to representing me as a d.p.,” Larsson said to Variety.

Sport celebs at the event included Belgian athlete Tia Hellebaut, U.S. former boxer Evander Holyfield, French rugby player Yoann Huget, Belgian jockey Christophe Soumillon, French judoka Loic Pietri, French athlete Ladji Doucoure and French former rugby player Daniel Herrero, among many others.

Pan-European TV channel Eurosport, a TF1 Group/Discovery Networks International joint venture, took the Best Sports Broadcaster plaudit.

CEO Peter Hutton was crowned Media Executive of the Year while shingle’s parent –Discovery—received the Best TV Rights Deal Award for its agreement with the IOC for pan-European rights to the Olympic Games in 2022.  Formerly a co-CEO at international media rights company MP & Silva Group, Hutton joined Eurosport very recently, in March 2015.
