JSE – Action Sports TV Producer

Xcorps Action Sports Music TV Producer Stu Edmondson

JSE -TV producer back 20!

Hello…for those interested in adrenaline sports and producing ACTION videos I can help you produce your own ACTION SPORTS TV series for the web or broadcast TV without a BIG production crew and without a traditional major budget!  Currently I produce a broadcast TV series called the XCORPS which airs and is distributed worldwide.

Extreme TV production!

My 20 year background includes training in journalism and still photography and then getting fully hooked on ACTION or as some say EXTREME sports in the mid 1990’s when I met a small group of videographers, editors, musicians and extreme sports people who were producing a sports TV show called PLANET X out of a condo in San Clemente California!

I helped produce over 100 episodes of the show which was airing nationally on a TV network called PRIME SPORTS which later was aquired by the FOX network.

Our guerrilla TV production group had created an Action Sports TV show that was airing on national TV at least 6 months before the new ESPN network began broadcasting the first X GAMES and it was a BLAST watching our own Action Sports show air every week on TV!

It was also very exciting shooting crazy unique sports like snowboarding, MX motocross, BMX, pool and mountain board skating along with fully unique X sports like SNOWBIKING and BASE jumping!  The Xcorps productions feature the women of Action Sports as well as the men!

Not only were the sports unique but the TV production methods we utilized were not taught in most film schools! The line was beginning to blur with the introduction of ‘Prosumer’ digital cameras!

When all the other big production shows were shooting with big expensive Beta SP cameras and linear editing on tape to tape decks we were shooting on the new Sony digital VX 1000 and editing non-linear digital with the then pre Apple New Tek Amiga Video Toaster Flyer computer – 150 MHz and 64 MB of RAM – running Lightwave 3D!

There were NO small POV cameras like GoPro on the market at the time so we were using Ewa water bags and custom surf housings to shoot water and snow sports!  So yes it can be said that we were ahead of the TV production curve! In 1996 we did a shoot with Baywatch babe Donna D’errico and our web guru Eric Ducharme had her video running on our website…it was postage stamp size but it was up and running LONG before most sites had any idea on how to put video online!

What struck me constantly was that how a small guerrilla TV group could  actually get a show on air and not be a BIG Hollywood production house! It was all about having the right ‘Roll Action and Cameras’ attitude and about filming the most extreme action we could find!

In 2001 one month before 9/11 I trademarked TheXcorps and started production on a new Action Sports TV series which added a Music emphasis to the show format. As of 2015 the series 62 episodes currently air worldwide with a 100M home broadcast coverage area.

On this website Action Sports Music TV  I will make available not only great examples of Action Sports and Music content but also the techniques and equipment needed to actually produce a broadcast level TV series with the goal of getting ON AIR!  This is not an easy thing to achieve but in the least I can help your videos look like they SHOULD be on TV!
