VIDEO: Behind The Scenes of Brandon Semenuk’s Accomplice Segment

When it comes to creating truly standout pieces of mountain bike cinema, it’s not just about the talent in front of the camera – getting shots like those found in Accomplice took some pretty nifty movie magic. Thanks to our friends from Peacemaker Filmworks, a camera outfit based in Vancouver that takes over when “getting the shot” turns into an engineering problem, we were able to capture Brandon Semenuk and Paul Genovese like never before.

Peacemaker brought lots of high-tech toys, including FPV drones and a robotic KIRA camera arm into the field to capture the riders on BC’s Sunshine Coast. Take a peek into this unique corner of filmmaking, and learn about the challenges and rewards of making this unforgettable segment from Accomplice. Haven’t seen the segment yet? Watch it right here.

Josh Bryceland Has A PSA: Please Clean Up Your MTB Trails After Shredding!

Josh Bryceland’s English might be a little tough to understand sometimes, but his message here is clear: as mountain bikers, we need to remember to do our part as trail stewards and help clean up the woods! After one of his favorite local riding spots got pretty trashed by heavy use this summer, Ratboy was bummed by what he found while out riding. So he took it upon himself to do his part and clean up the woods, picking up all manner of garbage along the trails. RELATED: Accomplice Trip
