This picture was taken during the filming of ‘Slezhammer’ edit for BMX rider Ondřej Slez. Many people know about this spot but we were the first with no fear to get up and take the shot. It felt like a stairway to heaven when we were climbing up the ladder. This place is located close to the Barrandov Studios but nobody paid attention to what we were doing there. So we could fully focus on the best shot.
Ondřej is an amazing person. His imagination is limitless in all aspects of his life – BMX, tattoo or renovation of his 1967 Ford Mustang. It was one of the most inspirational experiences of my life to be part of the team working on the edit. It was great to see the creativity of the filmmakers (they used 35mm, 16mm and 8mm film).
When I saw all the gear my friends had, it seemed like we were shooting a Hollywood movie – three RED cameras, prime lenses, one 35mm film camera, six people operating the camera and all we got was a four second long shot.
But one of the most intense moments was when we got back to our car and discovered that everything had been stolen. We lost almost all the equipment – thankfully not footage, just a few shots from RED cam.
