As the pilot episode for this brand new 360 degree video series, The Old Ghost Road multi-day mountain trail was the ideal location to shoot.
With the help of The Old Ghost Road Trails Trust, we took a team of 4 across the 3-day backcountry mountain bike adventure. The shoot involved multiple 360 degree mounts, designed and made by our team, wireless mic audio, and aerial 360 footage for both the opening and closing shots.
The ride itself was challenging and not for the faint-hearted. Our team thrived working in the arduous environment and the finished piece is a pinnacle media asset that The Old Ghost Road Trails Trust will use for many years to come.
Within the first month of release, this “3 mins in 360” video had a reach of 85k with 9.5k full views and over 90 shares on Facebook.
ABOUT THE OLD GHOST ROAD
A long-forgotten gold miners’ road has been revived as a mountain biking and tramping trail – connecting the old dray road in the Lyell (Upper Buller Gorge) to the mighty Mokihinui River in the north. The 85km-long Old Ghost Road traverses majestic native forest, open tussock tops, river flats and forgotten valleys.
