I used to shoot a lot of wakeboarding. It was a passionate love affair that eventually got left in the wake (no pun intended) of corporate production and an actual income.
I shot everything on the Panasonic HVX, loved it and had an absolute ball. . .but now the HVX has been gone for quite a while, I got to thinking about what might happen if I turned a Canon lens on the action.
Enter James Boggia, a mate of mine who is fresh from being crowned World Champion in Turkey and happens to be pretty good at the standing sideways on a water board thing.
We decided we would start getting some footage, and this is just a quick and dirty camera test cut of what we have after two very short sets. It’s a major work in progress, but instead of collating footage for an eternity and releasing one 5 minute clip, I thought we’d leak stuff along the way so you can watch things come together. This is here strictly as a point of reference to look back on and probably for Boggia to sling around facebook.
The edit is rough as guts, continuity was tossed roughly aside, it’s ungraded footage straight out of the camera, has no filters applied – this folks, is as dirty as it gets. . .The angles are limited, but it’s a start. . .from here the only way is up and that’s where we intend to take it. . .
All real time footage was shot on the Canon 5DMKII and the slow motion was shot on the Canon 7D.
Stay tuned for more info as things develop and a full run down on the shooting techniques when we’re done and dusted!
