Jay Jalbert had a standout collegiate career at the University of Virginia and then went on to play professional lacrosse in Major League Lacrosse and the National Lacrosse League, as well as on the U.S. National Team. Today, you probably won’t find him on the lax field as often as you’d like. He is much more busier capturing video footage of extreme sports such as kayaking, rafting and mountain biking to name a few.
World renowned sports production and distribution company Jalbert Productions International (JPI) (www.jalbertfilm.com) today debuted “2010 Teva Mountain Games,” a one hour network syndicated OTO program chronicling America’s largest celebration of adventure sports (kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, road cycling, World Cup Bouldering, fly fishing, stand up paddling, trail running and a half marathon) and lifestyle events in Vail, CO. JPI’s accomplished team of cinematographers battled the elements and pushed the envelope of creativity to capture on high definition film the stunning beauty of Vail and the unparalleled action and brotherhood of athletes. The “2010 Teva Mountain Games” program is the result of a partnership between Jalbert Productions International, the Vail Valley Foundation and the title sponsor for the games, Teva®, (a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation, NASDAQGS: DECK).

Acclaimed sports director Jay Jalbert and his award-winning team of sports cinematographers used high speed cinematography cameras, mounted cameras on the helmets of kayakers, perched cameras precariously on rock outcroppings and employed a cable activated camera systems to capture the character, drive and the passion of amateur and professional athletes as they battled each other and the
mountains of Vail.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our technological capabilities, creativity and editing skills,” said Director Jay Jalbert. “It clearly shows that there is no location in the world that our seasoned video and film crews can’t handle.”
