Can’t believe this video hit 50million views on YouTube. So unreal. It’s now the 2nd most viewed video on the @redbull channel thank you
Even though this was the very last jump in the video, it was the first thing we filmed On the first shoot day early in the morning. I was glad to get it out of the way first and then have a free mind for the rest of the shoot.
The takeoff platform is called the “finger” (which is hilarious to me for some reason) We had a worker move the finger for me, so I had exact control about the size of the jump. It was hard to get an accurate feeling for the distance 🧐Since the airplanes surface curves away from you the jump always appears bigger than it actually is.
Of course, I wanted to make the jump as big as possible and we slowly increased the distance with each test. After each jump I couldn’t return to the finger by myself and they would pick me up with the finger It wasn’t possible to put the finger back in the exact same position, so every jump was a little different. At the end I got really comfortable and it was such an enjoyable jump! Did it about 5 times for all the camera angles and photos and then we finished the rest of the video @mischfabrik@ediphotoeye@jaanusree@redbullgermany
