The Red Bull BC One is an international b-boying contest which has reached its tenth year.
We could deal with it like a service, trying to highlight the best b-boying actions and that's it.
The director decided that it could be interesting to show a process, the b-boys trip to the event, giving the idea that it's not only a competition because it's connected to passionate lives and hard training days.
We asked Red Bull to give send some gopro cameras to the finalists to collect a videodiary. Some of them did it better than we expected. The whole clip it's just a 6 minute coverage of the whole event, so it's just a taste of it.
Moreover the judges' presence was very inspirational for the guys and for us too. Junior, Wing and Cico have been very patient during the shooting session.
We decided to portrait them in front of a famous graffiti by Blu, which shows immediately the geographical location from a deep hip hop point of view.
We hope you enjoy it.
