[BTS Video] Todd Jones Shoots X Games Athletes at 1,000 FPS with Phantom HD Gold
Who doesn’t love watching the X Games? Those athletes are crazy. Just as captivating, though, is this behind-the-scenes two-part video on The Northface and X Games Baldface commercial. Director Todd Jones pulls out all the stops in this two part BTS documentary, breaking out a Phantom HD Gold, a helicopter, and building one really enormous jump. The crew headed out to Baldface Park for a ridiculous couple days of shooting, and I love listening to Jones explain the difference in approach when you’re shooting with a camera that captures 1,000 frames per second. Possibly the coolest part, though, is in the second clip, where you get to watch the fresh powder explode off the athletes’ skis in slow motion.
