Accompanied by a film crew of five, 3 bikers hit the mountains in search of trails, challenges, adventures in nature and "those special moments" that make biking so exciting! Without lapsing into pseudo-political palaver - Enjoy our clip!Idea and background
It took us almost 1.5 years to turn a mere idea of a project over some beer and wine into a finished clip. Looking back, everything began when Chris and Hans wanted to build on their successful first video Obeying Gravity and realize the vigor and the "know how" generated back then in a larger project. After a few e-mails and phone calls, one idea led to another: A team of two became a no budged party of nine students who would later form the No Studios Production team together with reinforcement from North Germany.
After 2 test shootings last spring (Spring Ignition and Elevated Plains) and many hours of planning and preparing, the time had finally come in July last year: We put the mere idea of shooting an alpine mountain bike clip into action and the outdoor shootings in the Alpine altitudes of the Oetztal valley (Tyrol - Austria) began. Retrospectively, however, the most important work consisted in the post-production which made OGII what it is: A visionary, multi-faceted adventure in the mountains that can be communicated.
