This previous July the Carlmont Youngsters made a visit out to Northstar California with the intentions of filming a video on their new specialised demo’s. With solely 7 days on the hill, we had our work reduce out for us.
Throughout the raise hours, it was using and suspension testing for Alec and Jared as they arrange their new bikes. On the finish of the day, we took the final raise as much as movie on trails comparable to Boondocks, TNT, Karpiel, Dogbone, Sticks and Stones, Gypsy and Livewire. Throughout thunderstorms with the lifts shut down we hiked up the hill to get some pictures beneath the cloud cowl.
At night time we got down to seize the smoke/mild pictures of the bike. Our authentic plan was to create smoke bombs out of ping pong balls, however that failed for numerous causes. Then somebody had the thought of utilizing a fireplace extinguisher for the smoke. The visuals from the white powder had been unimaginable. A number of of us by accident breathed in a number of the mud, however we will all say it was 100% value it for the pictures.
One of many pictures we received was of Alec scrubbing a velocity bounce on TNT whereas I flew the drone behind him. After a couple of failed makes an attempt, low batteries and nearly crashing the drone we had been prepared to maneuver on. Jared satisfied us to have another go and all the pieces lined up completely. The tip end result is without doubt one of the greatest clips of the video.
This was palms down probably the most enjoyable shoot I have been on and in addition the biggest in scale. It was stuffed with ups and downs and lots of challenges to beat. The tip result’s one thing Alec, Jared, and I are really pleased with and stoked to share.
