Chopshop Shoots Transworld Riders’ Poll Awards to Air on FUEL TV

What happens in Las Vegas doesn’t always stay there. Especially when the crew from Irvine-based production company ChopShop travels to Las Vegas to shoot the Tenth Annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll Awards for FUEL TV, then returned to Orange County to create a half-hour show that will air on April 6.

ChopShop Creative Director Zach Lyons, Lead Producer Sean Osborne and crew traveled with equipment in tow to shoot the event at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in high definition using five cameras. FUEL TV Executive Producer Shon Tomlin, TransWorld Executive Producer Michael Starobin and TransWorld Producer Mike Lyons were also on location.

Cameras rolled as on-air personalities Pat Parnell and Tina Dixon interviewed snowboarding pros Danny Kass, Annie Boulanger, “SketchyD” Dennis Buongiorno, Peter Line, Rob Kingwill and Scotty Arnold along with award winners including Marie-France Roy who won the Reader’s Choice Award and Women’s Video Part of the Year; and Travis Rice – the Stand Out of the Year – and winner of the Readers’ Choice Award, Men’s Rider of the Year and Men’s Video Part of the Year awards.

The Tenth Annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll Awards, presented by Gore-Tex, was hosted by Todd Richards and ended with high-energy performances by Volcom bands Kandi Coded with Jamie Lynn and Tweak Bird.  The Tenth Annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll Awards will air on FUEL TV on Monday, April 6, at 8 pm ET/PT.
