I’ve just got back from a two week trip down in Queenstown where I stayed at Snow Park to film the Red Bull Snowboarding Performance Camp with the NZ Green Room team. It was an epic half a month working with a really talented group of people (above) who are all really passionate about their area of expertise. It was an international event so we were filming the worlds best Snowboarders in the world who were constantly amazing me with their enthusiasm and their amazing skills. The stay at Snow Park was incredible with such friendly staff and awesome facilities. Red Bull looked after us really well and we were very fortunate to have so many blue bird days in such a jaw dropping location. Here’s the first video from the trip:
The Chuck Berry Red Bull Chronicles Feature is now available online after airing on skysports 3. It was an incredible trip filming Chuck jumping out of the heli and wingsuit flying down the Remarkables in Queenstown. Here it is:
I was asked to film and edit the Red Bull Stereopticon in Auckland, unfortunately I couldn’t make it as I was down in christchurch shooting a short film. However I was back in Auckland the next day and had fun editing the Red Bull Stereopticon footage which is now online. Feel free to check out the edit:
A couple of months ago I went with Red Bull and NZ Green Room Productions to film Chris Birch showing off his Enduro racing skills. It was an epic shoot seeing Chris Birch ride across incredibily unstable terrain and make it look so easy! Above is the edited version of the video we shot of Chris Birch which aired on Sky Sports last month.
25 episodes later and it’s the end of filming in studio for the very first series of the ‘Red Bull Chronicles’. We finished with a wrap party at the Red Bull HQ where everyone had an epic time dancing the night away. There’s been lots of good times, filled with lots of laughs and Red Bull! I’ve been very fortunate to be part of such an awesome crew who’ve all contributed so much to the show! I’m going to miss being around them all and can’t wait to work with them again! I also have to mention the lunches which were amazing and made the day that much better (thanks Anna). Here’s some photos of the behind the scenes and a preview of the next episode:

Just over a week ago, NZ Green Room Productions and Red Bull went down to Tokoroa to film FMX super star Nick Franklin on his farm. As it seems with every Red Bull Shoot this year we had great weather and an awesome time. Nick showed off his skills with back flips, the super man and some crazy combos that looked insane. Shooting was intense as Nick was flawless with almost every single jump which meant we had to nail the shot the first time so he wouldn’t have to keep doing it over and over again. When Nick took his first jump I had to pinch myself, it was unbelievable how much height he was getting and how easy he made it look. I can’t wait to see this episode on the Red Bull Chronicles, it’s going to epic!
