The word ‘extreme’ doesn’t quite do justice to describe Red Bull’s latest dip into extreme sports filmmaking. Markus Eder’s The Ultimate Run is probably the most hazard-riddled downhill skiing likely ever filmed.
“I’ve always dreamt of showcasing all of my skiing in one big, flowy project,” Eder told Red Bull, who financed the project. “Typically, I contribute to multiple projects throughout the year. But this time, I wondered what I could create if I put all of that energy into one vision - where everything I’ve lived for amounts to a 10-minute segment.”
The cinematography of production company Legs of Steel is simply astonishing, capturing Eder’s incredible descent every step of the way.
