Semenuk’s One Shot Segment = unReal

Video Anthill Films/Teton Gravity Research
Date Jul 22, 2015

To celebrate the release of unReal on iTunes, Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill release one of the most acclaimed segments from the film. Widely recognized as the best slopestyle mountain biker in the world, Brandon Semenuk has become the first mountain biker to film a full segment in a single continuous shot. This uninterrupted shot was filmed by the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system, the GSS C520, mounted to a truck on a custom road built next to a custom trail that took three weeks to build. This true cinematic achievement required perfect coordination between Semenuk, Anthill Films, and TGR with regard to athleticism, planning, timing and logistics. Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once.

The historic moment was produced for unReal, the feature mountain bike film inspired by the unprecedented creative union of production companies TGR and Anthill Films, and the limitless imaginations of a group of the best mountain bikers in the world.

Drone? Helicopter? Wizardry? How did they get that shot?

So smooth, his riding style and technique. He makes it look effortless to us mere mountain biking mortals.

So incredibly smooth and effortless. Interesting that he was injured when they filmed it. When I first saw the segment in the theatre I didn't know that but thought he seemed to be riding a little conservative (for a super-human). Makes me wonder what he would have done on that line if he was 100%?

Reminds me of the days when we only got one or two new vids per year, and we'd watch our favourite segments over and over. This is the one that would have worn out the tape if you had it on VHS.

Semenuk blows my mind again. Legendary. Incredible planning and execution by the Unreal team. Definitely my favorite segment.
