About 2 months ago we where given the opportunity to make a commercial for Tele2. Since then we have been trying to push ourselves to the absolute limit in therms of stunts and camera work. We chose three of the most challenging extreme sports known to us. Downhill, Paintball and Skydiving.
We knew from the very beginning that this project had to be related to some of the work that we have been doing in the past, so we weren't completely amateurs. We had made a downhill movie, but the scope and scale on this one far exceeded to anything we had done in the past.
Going up in the air was a big challenge for the cinematography. I wanted to have all of the footage in the helicopter as stable as possible. So we tried mounting a tripod on the inside of the helicopter, but we quickly realized that the vibration from the rotor made the camera shake more than ever before. So I tried to use the steadicam, and i found that i could actually make it work. We had to connect a wire to the steadicam in case I would drop the camera, but it really didn't matter. All of the aerial sequences was shot using the 5D mark II with a 16-35 f2.8 on a glidecam HD 2000.
We are working as hard as we can on this project and we will release it as soon as we are finished.
