Well from those mad bad and glad it’s not me guys that gave us the Human Slingshot video we now have downhill Trike Racing. Great vision, with some behind the scenes shots showing the cameras and rigs used to film this crazy scary footage.
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 L series lens
Canon 70-200 F/2.8 L series lens
Canon 10-22mm EF-S
For the “aerial” looking shot in the video, my friend Jace climbed to the top of one of the mountains to “get the shot”, he had to travel through crazy amounts of dense forest and a river creek to get it, so shout out to him for making that happen.
Film was made by Devin Graham
For the filming of this video my friend Jace LeRoy was a huge part of it. He spent the day filming it with me, running his camera (Canon T3i).
This video would not have happened if it wasn’t for my friends Danielle Jensen and Tyce Jensen. They are the original creators of the modified trikes that were rode in the video. They even had a speedometer attached to the bikes they were riding, and they clocked in going 55mph down the road we filmed at, passing cars in the process.
We shot this in a place called Powder Mountain Utah.
As far as the sound design for this video, we actually didn’t use a SINGLE piece of audio from the actual day of filming. For all the bike sounds and shoe noises, we recorded those the next day in a parking lot. I had my friends Scott Clarke and Ryan Faulkner help me record the audio for it. We recorded the sounds by getting a broken bike and throwing that against the cement for bike crash sounds. We then towed me behind a truck with my feet dragging against the cement to capture the same noises that were made the day of filming with the shoes skidding against the concrete.
