Today I was supposed to be working on a video shoot that involves a guy on a Ducati doing some high speed sweeps over a hill and down a curved road. Unfortunately the 45 mile per hour wind gusts, and on again off again overcast have put the shoot on hold until next week. So instead of shooting video of high speed sport bikes burning up the back roads of Northwest Missouri, I am posting a video of a group of young women carving up a mountain outside of Madrid Spain on their long boards.
Carving The Mountains is a short film by Juan Rayos featuring the Longboard Girls Crew. The film features music by the Decemberist, and Pascal Comelade.
The film was shot with a Canon 5D Mk II DSLR. There was no additional info about any other gear on Rayos Vimeo page. The shots are all so fluid and smooth it makes me think he used some form of Steadicam rig.
