This long jump shot is one of the best cuts of Tomomi Nishikubo, a trial rider, which was filmed for Red Bull Bike’s “BIKE PENTATHLON” in August 2021. We chartered the whole stadium and set a challenge for the world’s first bike long jump. This is the moment when he made the front-flip long jump.
This filming project was very interesting as Tomomi tried several “Track and Field” events such as high jumps, and hurdles and the long jump was one of them.
This whole project was mainly for video shooting, so it was difficult to position the shooting point where the video crew wouldn’t photobomb me, and at the same time, I had to consider where I won’t videobomb them. We considered so many positions during this shoot and as a result, we were able to take what we both wanted. I would highly recommend you to watch this footage. It’s amazing!
The location of the stadium was also great. Surrounded by the beautiful forests of Hokkaido, and luckily the weather was nice. Mostly, many stadiums have spectator seats, but luckily this stadium didn’t have any around the stadium. I wanted the background to be as natural as possible so I can say that this location was perfect.
