Zack Mctee sent us his latest adventure – a commercial shot for Nike with a custom point of view (POV) helmet rig with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and parts from Redrock, Zacuto, and Jag 35 (and an unknown football helmet manufacturer – ha!). He also just today posted a bit of a BTS video showing off the rig to a few friends.
The Nike promo
Two years ago we brought you the Nike iD Royale design challenge. If you missed out on the fun, well guess what, we're bringing it back for a second round! Got skills? Ever dreamed up a design that would destroy the game? Well now is your chance to show us what you got. It's tourney time and March is definitely going to be MAD, both on the basketball court and on the kicks.
Kicking off on March 13th at Niketown New York and Nike Sportswear at 21 Mercer, anyone is welcome to join the contest by submitting a sneaker design at either location. Once the designs are submitted, the top 32 will be chosen to go up on the official Nike iD Royale Facebook page where voting for the hottest shoes will begin. The top 16 shoe designs will move on to the following rounds for a chance to go head to head with some of New York's greatest in an effort to be crowned the Nike iD Royale 2011 King or Queen of NEW YORK! Be sure to check the Facebook page for the official rules of the contest and what prizes are in store for the winners of each round. Bring Up the Roar NYC!
The BTS of the helmet cam!
Wanted to link everyone to this new video I just did for Nike.
Attached is the image of the custom helmet cam I made for my 5D, it was heavy but pulled through like a champ.
and a little writeup about the event:
