The trails of the Whistler Bike Park have seen their fair share of screen time over the years, from segments in our past films to your next-door-neighbour's POV edit. So, when it came time to filming the bike park segment for unReal, we knew we had to do something different.
For as long as I can remember, my answer to the following question has always remained consistent. “Where is the one place in the world you want to go but have not yet been?” My reply, “Bali.” The fascination I’ve had with this tiny Indonesian island originally stemmed from its reputation for warm water and surf-able waves, but it wasn’t until recently when I met a Balinese mountain biker in Whistler that I realized there’s another huge reason to go explore Bali.

In the early 80’s, mountain biking emerged from a core group of friends using their bikes to find new adventures. The technology has evolved a lot since then, but the reasons why we ride will always remain.
Early last summer I had an unUsual email come across my inbox. It read something like this: “Hey Cam, we’re actually going to try to do that crazy glacier idea for unReal. We’ll be camping up there for 2 weeks and trying to find some rideable snow and ice. It will probably be a big challenge, are you into it...?”
Mind the Gap: The Making of unReal Episode 2. On June 25th, 2014, Tom van Steenbergen landed the biggest front flip in mountain bike history, but it almost didn’t happen.
As a lead up to the Summer 2015 release of unReal, Anthill Films and Teton Gravity Research are giving viewers an exclusive behind the scenes look at the film in their new web series, Mind the Gap. The first episode in the eight part series takes us to Turtle Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming with Trek athletes Brett Rheeder, Tom van Steenbergen, and Cam McCaul.
Have you ever noticed how long the lists of people are in the end credits of a movie? Even a short film can have hundreds of names... it's hard to wrap your mind around all those individual contributions. But that's what it takes. There wouldn't be movies without small armies working behind the scenes trying bring them into being.
As the official photographer for Anthill Films, Sterling Lorence is on set for our shoots whenever possible. Beyond capturing mind-blowing photos that document the progression of our sport, Sterling’s shots are a great compliment to the film, giving a unique perspective on of everything that goes down in front and behind the cameras. When Sterling agreed to share his slideshow from Follow Me, we thought it would be good to get his perspective on what life is like for being a still photographer working on a film shoot.
