New Zealand extreme sports legend Chuck Berry has been working on building a high altitude microlight in his garage for the last three years. He’s finally brought his dream to reality and finished the plane with amazing results. The team at Red Bull have been working hard on making a documentary of his journey in bringing the craft to life. Below is an excerpt from the the doco. It was really nice to see that some of my shots made it into the cut (the shots of Chuck building the microlight in his garage).

In April this year I had the privilege with NZ Green Room and Red Bull to go down and film Ben Brown, a pro kayaker conquering the Nevis Bluff in Queenstown. It was an impressive feat traveling down such a powerful river in something as small as a kayak. It was amazing to see it live and be able to film Ben doing what he loves. Bens a really great guy whose really down to earth and easy going! It was awesome spending a couple of days with him and learning about all his adventures. The piece we did on Ben that went live on Skysports a few weeks ago and is now available online:

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.
I did a job with Red Bull and NZ Green Room Productions filming the fmx rider Nick Franklin. It was an extremely exciting shoot with Nick throwing himself over a huge jump and doing extraordinary tricks.
The Red Bull Performance Snowboarding Camp was an epic trip where I learnt so much and had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented and inspiring people. The highlights video of the 2 week camp is now available online.

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:
