The team at TYTAN had the honor to film a true inspiration to the game of golf – and to anyone who has their own hurdles in life to overcome! Using a technically superior, high-speed Phantom Flex camera, our film crew catches professional PGA golfer and double amputee, Don Vickery, in action at the Wilmington Island Golf Course. Mr. Vickery, who lost both of his legs in an explosion while taking a walk on the property of Fort Gordon several years ago, regained his ability to walk thanks to Roy Rice of Augusta Orthotics and Prosthetics, who provided him with his prosthetic legs. Mr. Vickery is the only double amputee Professional Golfer to be named to the PGA membership. Mr. Vickery is the #1 Golfer in the World with his type of disability. Under the creative direction of TYTAN’S Executive Producer, Jim Stone; Creative Director/Writer, Scott Jacobs and Director/DP, Brad Kremer, the team was able to capture Mr. Vickery doing what he truly loves to do…play golf. The Phantom Flex camera’s capabilities will allow TYTAN to produce cutting-edge footage that can showcase Mr. Vickery’s talent in super slow motion. The final cut is sure to be amazing, and a great addition to TYTAN’S collection of national quality sports films! The spot is currently under wraps for a prominent, national Golf organization and will be released in the upcoming months… so be on the lookout!Executive Producer: Jim StoneCreative Director/Writer: Scott JacobsDirector/DP: Brad KremerColor Correction: John Scheer / Four Seasons Studios LAProduction: Tytancreates.comGrip: Mark NguyenJib Operator: Brad KremerPost Production: Mark NguyenStill Photography: Roxy Stone - www.roxifystudio.com
