As a skiing camera and gimbal operator, I filmed exhilarating action sequences alongside biker Vincent Tupin for ‘The Old World,’ a groundbreaking European bike movie. This acclaimed film, bridging the gap between mountain biking and BMX, earned three Emmy nominations, showcasing the thrill and skill of these adventure sports.
