Red Bull has yet again set the bar higher for motion capture capabilities combined with sheer awesomeness. And to answer your question, yes it involves more flying. In this epic behind the scenes footage we see the workflow for creating high speed footage while flying through the air with the subject on skis. If this sounds dangerous it's because it absolutely is. Check out the full video spot below.
I think the most exciting part about all of this footage is that we are still very much at the beginning of seeing what is possible with these new cameras and devices that augment the footage. In this video we see Nick Goepper break down his slope style tricks. Go follow RedBull on Youtube for more videos like this.
