As far as the making of this video goes... We shot this over a couple different afternoons. The first afternoon I went out with a bunch of friends, and filmed them jumping off of the tower.
On the second day we shot the "story" part of the video, that's when we shot the guy in the " Ghillie suit", "sneaking in", and the guy then jumping off of the tower doing the "gainer(frontward backflip)".
All of the video was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II except for the slow motion shots where I had two other friends come and help me film those. Those two friends were... -Jase LeRoy -Nate Smith
For the slowmotion shots, they were shot on a Canon 7D and a Canon T2i. We used a Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 L series lens for all the wide handheld shots. And we used a Canon 70-200mm F/2.8 L series lens for all of the tight shots.
As far as making the camera look like it was "flying", I used a glidecam 4000 HD for all those shots. You can check out the exact model on there official website below where you can also buy them, and I don't get paid to say that :)
The motion graphics at the beginning of the movie were made by my friend Jared Mounch who I also went to film school with. He currently works with the film company LENZ-works. Be sure to check out there facebook fan page in this link. http://www.facebook.com/LENZworks
The sneaking in that was done in the video, was actually filmed somewhere else, but we wanted to make it seem like it was a military operation at first, so that was the thought process in that.
