As it turned out the weather didn't play ball, dark skies and a 20-30mph cross wind. But that didn't stop Chris Davies of Eastwood Media and Wales Adventure fame. Get the kit on, lets go ride and see what we capture. The Italian job offered a great backdrop with Chris and Treebeard (nickname, not Lord of the Rings) got the cameras and angles set up in quicktime. Myself, Ollie and Polly would be riding as a group of friends, out for the day and enjoying the trail.
The drone got up in the air for a few shots, amazed it did given the wind, and was expertly piloted to get up and down safely, without firing its payload of missiles at us!! Sorry, lost the plot again, wild imagination...
Quick run into the centre with drone shots, spot of lunch and back out for photo stills on Hip ty Hop, just in time before the hail and rain started. This seemed to be a theme for Chris, shooting Wales in summer is a challenge, but in winter, simply madness!!
The end product? A stunning 4k film that shows the essence of riding in Wales, even when the snow is down. Year round riding whatever the weather, what ever the bike, whatever the trail. Visit the new site and enjoy the film at www.mbwales.com.
