I didn’t have much time to do a lot of filming or editing this year, but I had some spare time towards the end of the year. I came up with the idea to do something different with the Rainer Spehl footage. We talked about taking Rainer into the second issue of Astronaut Magazine, so I thought I’d do some experimenting with the footage I already got from the Ucon X Rainer Spehl shoot. I found this effect/plugin I really liked and used it in the video. When I finished the video, a friend of mine invited me over to watch Red Bull’s “Art of Flight”, one of the best Snowboard movies out to date. Sadly, they used the same effect (those weird white moving squares) a lot as well, so this kind of turned into an Art of flight effect rip off. But I thought “fuck it, if I can do (of course in a very limited way) what they can do, that’s pretty awesome right?”
So this is only an experiment as I probably won’t have time to shoot an Rainer Spehl interview for Astronaut Magazine in the next three months.
