Also on camera I had Jace Leroy, Kristen Hillier, and Josh Contor who had full freedom to pick their own shots. We also had several other people help who jumped on camera for a little bit while we were filming.
Shout out to the Ensoul team, a team of extremely talented bikers , break dancers, poppers, and free runners. We had several of there team members doing the stunts for the video. You can check out there facebook page here…
We had one person get hurt filming the video, he was the second crash that appears. He ended up with 6 stitches in his knee cap. The week before we filmed someone had broken their neck on the jump.
On a technical note, it was filmed on a Canon 5D Mark II, 2 Canon 2Ti’s, and one EX1. I used a glidecam 4000 HD for all the smooth shots. You can check out the exact model on their official website here where you can also buy them.
We also had an assortment of lenses, Canon and Nikon. My favorite personal lens that I used was a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L series lens. I used this lens and the Glidecam 4000 HD for the opening couple shots with the biker before the jump.
For the shots with the camera on the biker, we used an HD Surf GoPro. It was my first time working with a GoPro, and I was super skeptical at first because of the small size of the camera, but with its slomo, and easiness to use after you spend a little of time with it, it worked great. And I was surprised how well it cut with the footage from our Canon cameras. No disappointments. All the GoPro footage was shot at 60fps as well, and 720p.
