We’re passionate about filmmaking and being in the mountains. When we can combine these passions, it’s like rainbows and unicorns in a glitter explosion of happiness. Okay, maybe that’s a little fantastical, but you get the idea. We love what we do.

We capture the highest-quality footage and weave it together to create brilliant brand content and tell inspiring stories, from conceptualization to distribution.

After seven years of working as Vail Mountain’s staff videographer, Satchele Burns created Deadline Motion Works in 2012. Since then, our production team has evolved into Steep Motion, a full-service video production team of four, creating everything from documentary pieces for the Vail Veterans Program to promotional content for iconic ski areas like Big Sky and Jackson Hole.

Our relentless approach to capturing images allows us to tell compelling stories as they happen, without disrupting spontaneity. Inspired by and founded in the mountains, we live for difficult and interesting shoot locations, whether that’s right here in Colorado or halfway around the world. Drop us a line and let us help you tell your story!
