Take a behind the scenes look at how Flatland BMXer Matthias Dandois and film director Christian Rigal filmed ’Tour de Flat.' The technique they invented together is revolutionary: it’s a derivative from the stop motion. It consists in repeating the same succession of tricks in different landscapes bringing a vectorial approach to the image, in 4 dimensions: static shots, traveling shots, circular shots and drone shots. Everything was filmed with a small crew and materials: one camera operator, one drone and one electronic single-wheeled board.
Flatland BMXer, Matthias Dandois spends his life traveling the world in search of the locations where no BMX ever ridden and inventing new tricks that no one ever tried. Last November 4th, the Frenchmen won his 7th title of BMX Flat World Champion. By far, the most titled athlete in his discipline!
