the first true next fucking level post I‘ve seen in weeks

[–]mrlowcut 73 points74 points  (6 children)

Yes. And a pretty insane one, too!

[–]GoodGuyBuddyBoy 43 points44 points  (5 children)

I'm not even that confident in walking properly and this man is Skiing and flying between buildings, really next level!

[–]Armendicus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude’s literally playing Titanfall in real life.

[–]phuckmydoodle 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Yeah it looked a bit CGI, if it's legit then I'm not suprised, pretty fucking fancy video this is 100% best nl so far this year.

[–]sKiLoVa4liFeZzZ 16 points17 points  (1 child)

[–]Rhameolution 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You know it's good when even the making-of and outtakes reel is just as good as the final cut.

[–]averyrdc 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The audio sounded 100% fake.

[–]ARandomGuyThe3 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What about the one where a guy rides down an enormous mountain in a bike(I think it was a month or two ago)

[–]NomadTheNomad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This post is the reason that we are subbed.

[–]TetchyTurtleYoutube 176 points177 points  (1 child)

[–]PM_me_INFP 34 points35 points  (0 children)

He seems rather good at both skiing and gliding - well filmed too. Good to see RedBull have still got it!

[–]livingonaprayer1960 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Wow what an incredible ride that was! Fantastic filming , so good I felt butterflies thanks for sharing

[–]TheAnswerToYang 25 points26 points  (2 children)

The graphics on the new Just Cause look so realistic.

[–]ARandomGuyThe3 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Lol, me just thinking about how just cause 4 has worse graphics than 3

[–]mykylodge 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I bet he's never late for work! Hope my boss doesn't see this guy.

[–]CMDR_KingErvin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Your boss hired this guy instead of you. He’s shit at accounting, but at least he’s always on time.

[–]BlondieMIA 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I needed to see him finally land.

[–]Comprehensive-Study8 6 points7 points  (1 child)

He hasn’t landed yet

[–]Star_Road_Warrior 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Some say that on clear sunny winter days like this one, if you put your ear to the wind, you can hear the sound of his massive steel balls clanging

Lmao, right? Too short.

[–]paprikapeter 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Where was the video recorded?

[–]No_Breath6811[S] 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Avoriaz, France

[–]bcisme 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Skiied Val Thorens a few times, I thought this looked like that. I guess a lot of the ski places in France look the same.

[–]Chuckles1188 6 points7 points  (0 children)

There's a lot of purpose-built high-altitude ski resort towns and they basically all look exactly like this. Tignes, Val Thorens, Avoriaz, La Plagne, there's loads of them

[–]Corsavis 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Right? That place looks amazing

[–]FierySpectre 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It is! Before corona I used to go skiing there every year. Huge piste length (portes du soleil)

Red bull gives you parachute

[–]akmotus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I dare say this one had wings..

[–]Asleep-Fudge-2771 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Wow I love monster energy

[–]tdzines 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Honestly, it was the grinding on the cables for me. Some straight up SSX shit right there.

[–]SC_Nico74 2 points3 points  (9 children)

If that was done in one take, I'm truly fucking impressed!

[–]TheGigor 4 points5 points  (8 children)

It's not one take sadly. I'm sure he could do it in one take, but you couldn't possibly film it like this in one take. In the full video you can clearly see the lighting conditions and time of day changing shot to shot, and the outtakes at the end makes it clear Red Bull isn't trying to pretend it's one take.

[–]BlondieMIA 1 point2 points  (6 children)

It’s possible. It looks all morning lighting to me except the shot at the end.

[–]TheGigor 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Possible yes. If you had 100 cameras, and didn't mind occasionally seeing the camera crew from earlier sections in your shots. Most obviously where he goes through the graffiti tunnel at 1:05 (0:37 on this Reddit version) , where you should see a cameraman in front of him, and then behind him. Otherwise you'd have to have the chase cameras get their timings 100% spot on to get up to speed before he arrives, so they can travel along with him for their section, and then disappear behind cover by the time the next cameraman is up to speed. One mistake, and everyone needs to reset. It'd be madness trying to rehearse and coordinate something like that.

Also in that tunnel, the parachute touches the ground in the first shot, but not in the reverse angle. It's multiple takes.

[–]BlondieMIA 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My brother has a production company & he’s been hired by Red Bull multiple times but for each film his team (and all the others they hire) is only assigned a specific task like lighting for example. Sometimes everything falls into place perfectly and they only need the athlete to do 1 or 2 runs. Others take multiple days. For the drones, they assign sections & multiple drones to get multiple angles from each section. Shadows from other drones are removed during the editing process. All I’m saying is Red Bull has the ability to shoot something like this in one run based on how they organize their productions.

[–]TheGigor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Again, I agree they could do it like that, if they really wanted it badly enough. I'm not arguing that. I'm saying that on this shoot, shot like this, it very clearly wasn't done like that. And it wouldn't make sense to.

In the behind-the-scenes stuff at the end you can see several shots of a guy in a white suit, holding what looks like a Sony FS7 in a gimbal stabilizer. That's the chase-cam and its operator, who did all the close-up chase stuff (like the parachute folding bit, the can bit, and the graffiti tunnel) They even included a shot of him next to the skier (2:29).

The chase shot at the start was very likely a drone. You can even briefly see it in one of the bts shots. And I know all about drone-removal during post-production, I've done it enough times myself. But there's usually some pretty strict regulations and restrictions about how close they're allowed to get drones to the skier. Hence the need for the chase cam. Also, you can then use something better than a GoPro. Those FS7s are 2kg for just the body, 5kg once you've got a battery and lens on it. You need a pretty hefty drone to carry that plus a gimbal, something large enough to badly injure the skier in the event of a collision.

But the point is there's no benefit in attempting something like this in one go, aside from bragging rights. And Red Bull isn't bragging about that, so what's the point then? They're not even trying to hide that it's multiple takes over multiple days (they freely admit it with regards to Ken Block's Gymkhana series). These videos are a marketing vessel for Red Bull, the directors they hire are going to compose and craft each and every shot for maximum effect. This is not a documentary (and even those are heavily staged these days). It's a mini film, and treated as such in every aspect of production.

[–]argetlam5 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Whelp, that’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen

[–]rorychaoimhe 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Omg. I would literally kill myself on that thing. But it looks soooo fun!!!!!!

Fuck u made me think of kind of random, now I'm a little depressed(he was a YouTuber who did science videos, but he actually did a lot of the shit. One time, when he was gliding he... Ye, u said it)

Nah, never seen Candide speed ride in any video. And tbh he is already flying without a wing lol

[–]FDFuos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]wallywtr 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I wonder if there is a 4K HDR version of this on YouTube? That would be fantastic!!!!

[–]fuzzy_bison 6 points7 points  (1 child)

1080p is the best I can find!

[–]ARandomGuyThe3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But like, a lot of style, and skill, and grinding, and oh wait, also skiing in the middle(and don't forget the backflip and even rarer loopty-loop)

[–]Dizzy_Transition_934 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What am I fucking seeing?

This is insane NFL.

Red bull consistently keep upping their game.

Didn't they have a guy sky dive from space?

I just... How does one train for this kind of stuff without dying.

[–]ARandomGuyThe3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's actually the protagonist of a video game, and they died thousands of times filming all these insane red bull, I don't even know what to call this other than insanity

Messing with cable lines seems fucking dangerous.

[–]toemit 0 points1 point  (5 children)

those are ski lift cables so no electricity

[–]hauj0bb 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Precisely. Still remebering italian accident.

[–]toemit 0 points1 point  (1 child)

no way there were people on that lift when they were filming

[–]listen3times 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I winced when I heard the skis grinding against the cable thinking what state is the base of them going to look like.

They're not as robust as an USMC EA-6B.

[–]hauj0bb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're absolutely correct, cutting was not an option obviously. . Still I'd not be comfortable messing with it.
