The Wonder Reels has done it again: this time they bring us the story of a stray GoPro found in the Whistler Blackcomb Nintendo Terrain Park. Before returning it to the lost and found, the crew that found it—they just happens to be a group of the most talented athletes in town– decides to have a little fun.
The storyline is cute, but what’s really impressive is the way that this short video shows us the versatility of the personal camera. We’ve all seen a lot of shaky GoPro footage, but “The Hand Off — A GoPro story” takes us down the rabbit hole of what can be done with a simple little camera. It’s no surprise that the video is produced by the guys at SwitchBack Entertainment, who are infamous for the way they constantly seek out new and innovative techniques to showcase skiing and snowboarding.
Once you get over the incredible camera work, the stoke will start to sink in. Footage of a group of friends having a great time on the most perfect of bluebird days would have you wishing you were right along with them—oh, and that you had the skills to go with it, too.
