Mind the Gap – The Making of the Dirt Blizzard Segment


Episode 9 of 9. Uploaded by Teton Gravity Research. The trails of the Whistler Bike Park have seen their fair share of screen time over the years, from segments in our past films to your next-door-neighbour’s POV edit. So when it came time to filming the bike park segment for unReal, we knew we had to do something different. Many people have asked us how we made this segment: Was the dirt real? Did we use a green screen? Does this actually happen in Whistler? Well, in the final episode of Mind the Gap we reveal how the Dirt Blizzard segment came to life.

FREE YOUR MIND

Every so often an event happens in nature that is so profound, it belies the very foundation of reality. This is the stuff of legends and lore, a rare phenomenon that may only happen once in a lifetime. In order to witness such an event, we must suspend our judgement of what we think we know. We must let go, look to the sky and believe.
