From the guys at Teton Gravity Research comes this latest installment of their Mind the Gap series. Here in episode 5, the guys are at Coast Gravity Park in BC. Darren McCullough is the videographer and he enlists Brett Rheeder as his subject. What’s cool about this video is that McCullough gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the lighting, rigging, digging, setup and filming process. If you’ve ever wondered how they get that certain shot, check out this video showing the cranes, jibs, track sliders, dollies, and drones. Watch as night is turned into day and the crew works long hours just to get the perfect shot.
