It had been a struggle shooting with Drew Bezanson in his hometown of Truro, Nova Scotia for his ‘Uncontainable’ movie project. It rained and rained for weeks, delaying the shoot for almost a month.
His idea was to build a bunch of ramps on shipping containers with potential for huge air but the highlight of the set-up was this 30ft, flat take off drop into a steep wooden landing. He practiced into an air bag for a week before actually trying it for real into the wooden landing.
When it came time to go I'm pretty sure Drew was nervous. All of us watching were definitely nervous. I set up two cameras, one shooting colour on the clean and paint-ed front-side of the obstacle, and this one on remote camera with a 15mm fisheye lens shooting black and white with all the leftover equipment and wood hiding in the foreground of my shot.
He started by successfully strait airing the jump then slowly working his way up to harder and harder tricks. Here I captured him doing a 360 X-Up halfway though the jump. Moments before it started to rain again, ending the shoot for the day.
