A few months back, Future Sports Video we’re chosen by British Cycling to produce an in-depth series of technical cycling skills videos for their members. So far we have produced 25 skills videos for road cycling (Sportives), 8 for cyclocross and 8 for mountain bike.
For each of the shoots I was the lead videographer and was extensively involved in the storyboarding and planning stages. Despite being very challenging due to the complex nature of the skills, atmospheric extremes such as torrential rain, the health and safety concerns of filming with car mounted cameras on open roads, the shoots have been hugely satisfying.
You can see some of the videos on the new British Cycling Insight Zone
Here’s one of my favourites which is nice and clear and includes a few pretty tricky camera shots.
Top work by Chris Urmston for the blinding post production skills.
