Danny MacAskill – Epecuén

This video makes great use of gimbal and drone shots (not to mention a series of amazing bicycle tricks). I really like the way the director incorporated his own style of the “instant replay” in this video. The way some of the reverse angles of the instant replays are setup I think they must of done the same trick and filmed it with different angles. Otherwise the reserve angle would of captured the cameraman from the original angle in it. I really appreciate the continuity of the tricks that were re-filmed and I also like how there aren’t any shadows from the crew accidentally captured either. The sound design of the film is something worth appreciating too. It’s amazing how little things like the squeak of the wheel or the rustle of the dirt makes a difference in the film. It almost makes you feel like you’re there. The music tracks are also powerful and well-chosen for the piece.

Watch as Danny MacAskill brings a forgotten city back to life with his latest street trials film. Following on from 2013’s mind-blowing “MacAskill’s Imaginate”, Epecuén is the latest film from Danny MacAskill.

Directed by long time collaborator Dave Sowerby, we’ll see Danny take his riding back to the roots of trials riding, exploring the forgotten town of Epecuén in Argentina, a location that has been submerged for the majority of the past 25 years.

Pablo Novac, Epecuén’s only resident throughout the troubled times, gives a brief history of the location culminating with his thoughts that he “can no longer see what use this place has for us now,” MacAskill however has other ideas.

Danny MacAskill is renowned for pushing the levels of both his riding and filming with previous releases “Way Back Home” and “Imaginate” accumulating over 50 million views between them; Epecuén is set to raise the bar once again.
