PHX-On location with the Video Production Team

I received an invite from Jeff at AZ State Parks (actually, he posted an open invite on here a while back) to participate in a video he's having professionally done. Well, I jumped at the opportunity to see the behind the scenes action!

We met at Sycamore Mesquite trail head and the bike riders included:

Yardstick
Johnny5
Slowred
Rich - Tonto National Forest Volunteer and dirt bike rider
Ben - Man behind the camera and on the trail

Jeff @ AZ State Parks and the remainder of the video team would use UTV to load up their gear and meet us on location out on the trail.



Early start this morning



Great desert sunrise



A little location scouting

I should back up a moment. After unloading and gearing up, I noticed a wet spot under my bike. At first, I thought maybe it was as excited as me to be there. Further inspection revealed that I had a gas leak! The gas was running from the junction of the brass fitting and the carb. How the heck am I going fix that!! Well, between Yardstick and I, we got it fixed with some electrical tape and with minimal delay!

Back on to the trail...



Ben, setting up at our first location.



SWING!! A RED 5K camera! WOWSERS!!

After completing our shots at this location, we packed up and headed to our next location.



It was only Ben's second time on a dirt bike after a several year hiatus, he needed a hand here and there. Here, Johnny5 lends a helping hand to get Ben out of this trench.





She's such a showoff!

Trails show some significant damage from the 5 inches of rain we got last Monday. The decomposed granite was super slippery this morning.



Rich just happened to be in front of me when he got crossed up.



Ben sets up at the next location.



I had picked up an unwanted passenger.

Slowred with the 35 pound tripod on his back.



Ben heads up the hill. It was quite challenging!



He must have known I had my camera at the ready!



He got a little stuck here. I ran up and gave him a hand.

We met up with the rest of the crew at the next location.



The drone was waiting for us when we got there.



That wasn't the only thing waiting for us!





Going up was easier than going down!



Choose your line carefully!

The UTV team was all set up on the ridge across the wash.



More shots.



On a break. In the desert, you have to make your own shade!

Let the hijinx begin! Slowred taking a picture of Nightstalker taking a picture of Slowred.



Wow, it was hot!



Johnny5 decides that she'll ride the trail backwards and blindfolded to mix it up.

Great RR Nightstalker! It was a fun day and interesting to see how these productions work.

I shot a couple of pics.

Our fearless leader in the day's production, Jeff!


We would ride to a location and wait for the camera guy to tell us what to do.Yardstick.

NS!

I don't know when the final product is due for delivery. I do know that they have more shooting to do.

Johnny 5! Long time. The only time I went all the way around the Peaks, Johnny 5 was along too.
You should take up trials!
