so i was thinking about park segments, and i think production companies could save a lot of money and still put out banger segments if they actually filmed in everyday public parks
just about all park shots in big movies are on enormous features, 90+ foot kickers, rail setups with huge gaps onto or off of the rail, and all of these take a lot of money to shoot. between building the feature and closing off the run for the film company, and then a lot of times these features can't be hit because of the weather, thats gotta be expensive.
why not just shoot in a normal park more often? snowboard movies tend to do this more, and the segments come out just as good, with a lot more creative shots. i think shooting in normal parks encourages riders to get creative, instead of just banging out some gnarly trick on a huge feature. look at adam delorme, he absolutely murders breck day in and day out, but his part in movies is usually pretty short because its all on enormous custom features. honestly i think i got more stoked on his shots in the jibberish movie, which was all on public parks, than in refresh (haven't seen eye trip yet).
sparknotes: filming in public parks would be cheaper, and would encourage creativity, i think more companies should do this. discuss
