Canon and Red Bull - Behind the scenes of 'Skate The Museum'

 Canon and Red Bull - Behind the scenes of 'Skate The Museum' - Official Canon Video

"The Natural History Museum is now closed – Canon and Red Bull, the museum is yours!"
Canon, @redbull @RedBullSkateboarding and a crew of Red Bull skaters were handed the keys to London’s Natural History Museum for one week only to skate amongst the museum’s 80 million artifacts. The crew worked with the latest Canon technology to capture the action, including the EOS C500 Mark II, the PowerShot V10 and the XF605 video cameras.
The museum's prominent exhibitions including the Minerals Hall and the iconic Hintze Hall, complete with Hope the whale, were transformed into skate-friendly areas overnight, with ramps and railings set up across the building to take advantage of the natural architecture in the space.
   The trio of skaters, six-time X-Games Gold Medalist @LeticiaBufoni, rising star Lore Bruggeman, and Argentina’s Aldana Bertran were joined by skate legend Margie Didal and together they scoped out the whole museum to skate spots, that no-one will ever skate again. The film crews worked with the Canon EOS C500 Mark II which features a 5.9K Full Frame sensor packed into a compact and reliable Cinema EOS body, alongside the next generation Canon EOS C300 Mark III, incorporating Canon’s 4K Super 35mm DGO sensor, with 4K 120P Slow motion, High Dynamic Range and Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The additional kit included the Canon CR-N700 and CR-N500, both with class-leading autofocus and a 15x optical zoom (30x in Full HD) that captures productions in superb detail, even in Night Mode. Both feature exceptional stability for smooth PTZ operation, which was essential for capturing the skate magic on the day.
One of the set pieces captured at the museum was a ‘bullet-time’ moment where Red Bull skate athlete Leticia Bufoni kick-flipped over the skeleton of a Velociraptor. This was achieved in conjunction with the team at the technical production agency The Flash Pack via a rig of 64 Canon DSLRs. The Canon EOS R5 was utilised once the sun had gone down, as the quality in lowlight allowed the team to capture incredible atmospheric shots of the skaters at the museum after hours. The Canon PowerShot V10 acted as a small and easy-to-use lightweight portable camera with a crisp image. The PowerShot V10 incorporates built-in stereo microphone, wide angle lens and shake-free footage thanks to Enhanced Image Stabilisation.
