BMX Pyro and Photography
On first glance, I for one was not convinced that a BMX bike and fireworks could possibly make a beautiful combination but having checked out the following film, it positively brings a lump to my throat.
The fireworks are carefully lit to coincide with some spectacular stunts and the use of slow motion both running forwards and in reverse only add to the magic. The scene opens with three lads coming around the corner on bikes as the film captures fireworks exploding from every side as they perform tricks with silver sparks subtly lighting the dark streets of suburbia.
The filming is then reversed to show the details in the fireworks from explosion to ignition with more spectacular bike stunts until the end which pans to the alleyway, lit by a single street lamp suddenly aglow with fireworks.
We have in the past only seen this level of artistry in still photography but will continue to bring you more on the fascinating world of pyro on film over the coming weeks.
