A Fearless Freak Production

A Fearless Freak Production

 

SkiAndBoarding.com met up with our friend Cal Thomson who runs Fearless Freak Production and wanted to share his awesome Ski edit with everyone.

 

Cal Thomson’s Blog -

I have gotten to a point in my film-making career that I can confidently produce many different types of videos. I can shoot, edit and distribute promo and short films. The only problem now seems to be content. Original short films are great but to avoid being type casted as a one trick pony I wanted to try something new.

I contacted Simon Bellamy from The University of Manchester’s Ski and Snowboard Society (SKUM)

asking if I could come along to a freestyle session one day. He happily invited me along to a small competition being held at :


‘The Chill Factore’ in North Manchester

http://www.chillfactore.com/

I shot the video in a few hours using a few different pieces of kit.

Camera: Canon 550D 720p 50fps
Lenses: 18-200mm 3.5/5.6 50mm 1.8
Stabiliser: Glidecam HD1000

The Glidecam HD1000 is an amazing piece of kit and is what makes the camera look as though its ‘floating’. It does however take some practice to get good at it so be prepared to put the hours in, below is a blog post which goes into more detail about the glidecam.

To create the epic slow motion effects I used a plug-in called ‘Twixtor’. Twixtor has the ability to slow footage down to 5% if not lower than the original footage. Twixtor then blends the frames to create a smooth slow motion effect. I did however shoot this video in 50fps to help twixtor out. I feel if its used in moderation it can really enhance a video so don’t go mad with it.

Just type in twixtor into youtube and you’ll find hundreds of examples of the software.

The music was created by an upcoming dubstep DJ called ‘Zomboy’. I contacted his management and said I would be interested in using his latest track ‘Organ Donor’ and would they oblige. They happily agreed for me to use the video as long as they got to see it first. This is my first large collaboration with another artist so hopefully it works out for the best for both of us.

Check out his awesome music on his facebook page:

Overall I would like to thank SKUM, Manchester’s Chill Factore, Zomboy and all the featured riders for their amazing skills.

A Video found on the web and brought to you by SkiAndBoarding.

Now that snow is covering the mountain peaks and temperatures are dropping, Burton Snowboards and host resort LAAX are gearing up for the 12th annual Burton European Open (BEO), taking place from January 8– 15,2011.
Over the years, the BEO has grown into Europe’s biggest on-snow event, showcasing the crème de la crème of international snowboarding and contributing to the progression of the sport with innovative slopestyle courses and a perfect superpipe. The BEO is also the premier breakthrough competition for upcoming riders, who often kick-start their snowboarding careers after excellent results in LAAX.

Snowboarders like Olympian Peetu Piiroinen (FIN) and Enni Rukajärvi (FIN) got their start at the BEO where top results gained them international attention in the early days of their careers.
