Born in the Field
Kettlebottom Creative got its start producing an outdoor sports television show, Kettlebottom Outdoors – which continues releasing content to this day. The challenges of filming hunting and fishing content shaped Kettlebottom Creative early on to value compact efficiency. Shooting in foreign locations including Ireland, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and across the United States, necessitated self-sufficiency and judicial selection of essential equipment.
Through years of developing and producing several television productions, working completely in-house from pre-production through post-production, we have gained the knowledge and experience to complete in-depth projects without requiring any external resources.
Working under challenging and unpredictable conditions has taught us to be highly mobile, self-reliant and flexible.

Ty began working for Kettlebottom at its inception as an outdoor television production company. With a strong recreational background in fishing, hiking, diving, and lifelong interest in nature he was given the opportunity to become the first full-time employee in order to capture and ultimately edit hunting and fishing excursions both locally and around the world. Expansion into extreme sports increased the difficulty due to the speeds involved, the technical aspects of such sports as rock climbing or alpine skiing, and the extreme weather necessary for sports such as kiteboarding or ice climbing. The steep learning curve presented by long hours in the field, unpredictable weather conditions, and increasingly remote destinations led to a necessity for self-sufficiency, mobile gear, and the flexibility to adapt to virtually any challenge on the fly. Addition of George to the team in 2011, as well as increasing demand for client video work, allowed Kettlebottom to grow organically, increase our technical expertise and diversify our offerings.
