Stripped: mountain bike movie

Graham at Go Clipless posted recently about capturing flow in mountain bike photography and since I read his post I’ve been on the lookout for good examples, particularly in MTB videos.

The trailer for Stripped seems to do a good job at capturing flow, and the video isn’t confined to just one style of riding as it spans XC, downhill, and freeride. According to the Clean Cut Films website this isn’t an accident as they used a number of methods including helicopters and cable cams to get the amazing footage. While normal helmet cam shots do a pretty good job at capturing the flow of the ass of the rider in front of you, you can really get a much better feeling of “flow” through creative filming techniques.
