Mind the gap: the making of unReal | Episode 1

Behind the scenes with Brett Rheeder, Tom van Steenbergen, and Cam McCaul

Don’t miss out on this one. Trek athletes Brett Rheeder, Tom van Steenbergen and Cam McCaul are given carte blanche on the hills of Turtle Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. With Anthill Films and Teton Gravity Research on site to film, everything goes as planned until someone gets a bit too close to a horse.

From Anthill Films:
As a lead up to the Summer 2015 release of unReal, we’re giving viewers an exclusive behind the scenes look at the film in a new web series, Mind the Gap.

The concept behind this shoot was fairly simple: ride bikes with horses. The execution on the other hand proved to be a bit more complex. When you’re rolling with a 15-person crew, helicopters, skid-steers, and a pack of galloping horses, things take on a momentum of their own.
