The Kid Should See This

Frames of Mind: Tricks visualized by freestyle mountain biker Matt Jones

Freestyle mountain biker Matt Jones visualizes his incredible MTB tricks with the help of rotoscoping, keying, and luma keying techniques—”‘cutting around’ Matt and his bike mid trick to insert in the same shot in real-time or even another shot” and “‘cutting out’ Matt and his bike by colour” and by luminance. The result: A mix of ‘present’ and ‘future’ footage that seems to click together. Frames of Mind was produced by Cut Media for Red Bull.

File under: Practice. Next: Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out, Brandon Semenuk’s unReal mountain bike ride in one 3 minute shot, and Rachel Atherton’s downhill mountain biking victory at Vallnord.

Bonus: Renegades of Bike Culture or How Mountain Biking Was Invented.
