Matthias Dandois is always on point with media press releases and sent in this awesome press release for his latest project, read on!
I’m really proud to present you my new Red Bull video project: “TOUR DE FLAT 2018”
The technique we invented together is revolutionary: it’s a derivative from the stop motion. It consists in repeating the same succession of tricks in different landscapes bringing a vectorial approach to the image, in 4 dimensions: static shots, traveling shots, circular shots and drone shots. Everything was filmed with a small crew and materials: one camera operator, one drone and one electronic single-wheeled board.
The filming lasted seven intense days. We made eight stopovers: Paris, Épinay-sur-Orge, Nantes, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Hossegor, Montpellier and Lyon. Despite bad weather conditions and non-traditional grounds for BMX Flat, We finally made it!
To find the best spots, I engaged my community through my social networks with the hashtag #DandoisChezToi (literally “Dandois at your home”). It allowed me to meet in person the ones who follow me all year long. The good side of social medias!
The video got so much media coverage already! We made all the French News Channel (BFM TV, CNews, France Info…) and got multiple articles in L’equipe, Paris Match, Fubiz, Le Figaro…) Super stoked on it!
The Making of the video will follow soon!
