Down to the Sea
We hooked up with Tintagel based mountain biker Jack Stocker to make a short film about his downhill shenanigans on the North Cornwall coastline, using aerial imaging from drones and ground based filming.
The combination of Jack’s natural enthusiasm for throwing himself off anything on his bike and the beautiful scenery, made this an extremely fun project to work on. Although there were a few ‘heart in the mouth’ moments, no mountain bikers were hurt during the making of this film.
Our Cinestar 8 Octocopter was the perfect tool for tracking Jack down some amazing coastal trails towards the ocean and the MOVI-5 gimbal kept everything smooth and stable in both aerial and handheld modes. We really are blessed to have such amazing scenery on our doorstep, not to mention characters such as Jack to strut their stuff.
Hopefully this won’t be the last time we work with Jack so watch this space. We have already identified some new ones for Jack to attempt but this will most likely have to wait until next Spring.
