Everyone’s favorite vlogger Casey Neistat made the most of the recent snowstorms that hit New York City, by snowboarding through Times Square. If you haven’t already seen the final video, be sure to check that out further below. In the included behind-the-scenes video, you can see how run and gun most of the shoot was. Casey and Jesse Wellens had to think fast and adapt to not only the quickly changing weather, but to road closures in the city itself.
It constantly blows me away when I see video like this that are shot exceptionally well, all things considered. There seemed to be minimal planning, and only gear that could fit into a small pack could be utilized, yet with the technology available today (compact drones, gimbal stabilizers, POV cameras) the shots were excellent. It’s a pretty cool time to be alive if you’re a visual creative, that’s for sure.
