Hi-Ground Media Chooses Element Technica for Red Bull Shoot
“The location was in the rugged, dusty mountains of Virgin, Utah, in close proximity to Zion Park,” explains Hi-Ground’s Greg Katano. “The ridge began at about 6000 feet, and the rugged, rocky terrain required us to move cameras/rigs into position each day via SUVs and manpower. We knew we would encounter everything from rain to wind storms as we followed these riders as they prepared for the event, built their ‘lines’ (the path they would take down the mountain course), interview them and capture their practice sessions during the days leading up to the event.”
“We’ve been working with Element Technica for two years, beginning with the inception of their line of 3D rigs,” adds Relan. “The rigs are robust and the technical support is of the highest quality. They bring state-of-the-art technology and technical support to maintaining their rigs. We needed that, as we put the Pulsar, which carried a high-speed camera system with DigiPrime lenses, through its paces in the challenging environmental conditions which required daily movement.”
Element Technica’s Pulsar is engineered to stereoscopically mount mid-sized and box-style digital cameras such as the Scarlet, Epic, SI-2K, Sony EX3 and P1. Element Technica rigs are renowned for their robust construction, and for the ability to be set-up and precisely aligned in a short period of time. Additionally, ET 3D rigs are camera agnostic, and the same rig can be configured in side-by-side or bean-splitter modes.
Red Bull Rampage: The Evolution is now in post production at Hi-Ground MEDIA studios in Los Angeles, and will be slated for release later this year.
