I recently produced a little video work for Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland
The video was to promote a new funding grant scheme for Scottish accomodation providers. As riders we all know that finding somewhere to stay when on weekenders away is a challenge, as more or less, nowhere has secure bike storage. This scheme is an attempt by DMBinS to help change that, and improve the range of accomodation available to cyclists.
The riders in the shoot and my willing actors, are members of the DMBinS team, Will Clarke and Colena Cotter. The Hotel in the video, is the exceptionally bike friendly and helpful Peebles Hydro. Seriously if you want to see the high bar for bike provision by an accomodation provider, see what they have done with Genesis Bikes.
The shoot was a fun little morning. We sessioned sections of Daves trail at Glentress, gradually making our way down to the Hydro. Probably one of the more challenging and fun elements of this project where the animated sequences in the second half.
Using a mix of C4D and After Effects I pulled it all together in Premiere. Whilst being fairly simple, I am pretty happy with the overall effect and outcome.
So whilst not being the usual kind of video I make for Stravaiging, it is still MTB related! And thank you again to the Hydro for being so accomodating and to Will and Colena for their acting (and riding) skills!
