Four days shooting in Genova, on three simultaneous sets: the one with the filming crew, for the spot, that took place mainly during the nights; the one with the digital and social media guys; and the one for the key visual shots.
I was committed for the second set and I was working in a team with a video-maker. We mainly shoot in the city of Genova, scouting for the most modern and scenographic spots. Although it was not an easy task I think the result is not bad at all. For some other action shots we moved on the Monte Fasce, right outside the city, for a more natural and captivating scenario.
Since the slogan for the new bike was “shaped by the light”, I decided to take some more creative and extroverted shots. We had the incredible opportunity to shoot an entire night in the commercial port of Genova, where I gave free rein to my creativity, taking long exposure pictures in order to play with light painting. Here are some results!
After a long period away from Italy Leo is back for a surfing session at the Wakeparadise of the Idroscalo in Milan. The champion of the Red Bull team tested the artificial static wave of the sports center. With him also the Red Bull wakeboard world champion Massimiliano Piffaretti who, after the static wave, tried his hand at a double in his discipline with Leo. In the pool with them also another big name in surfing: Roberto d'Amico.
S2 E6: The two talents challenged each other in a timed course: Massi completed it surfing between tricks and amazing athletic gestures; while Irene darting along the shores of Lugano lake driving a Lamborghini. The roles have been reversed at the end of the challenge to make it a little more exciting! The following shooting days have been spent on track, where Irene challenged Piffa in a discipline that was more in her wheelhouse.
