When Max Langille arrived in Fernie to shoot Mantra he had no strict shooting plans. Instead, he had ski and bike video wizard Dylan Siggers as a guide.
“We just went to each spot and felt out what tricks would be cool versus having things already planned out which helped make things feel organic,” says Langille.
The result, Mantra, shows. It has a relaxed summer road trip vibe, along with Langille’s stellar riding. Siggers’ does an excellent showcasing the visiting Calgarian’s skills as well as his hometown’s incredible trails.
A few hard bails and some real big tricks later, and the duo had Mantra in the can. Enjoy!
Max Langille – Mantra
More words on Mantra from Commencal Canada :
Our Commencal Canada rider Max Langille took advantage of a few days in Fernie (British Columbia) to shoot Mantra with friend and cameraman Dylan Siggers. They tell us about the one desire for this edit; get out on the bike and ride!
“Max came down in June this year and we had a really loose goal to just shoot for a few weeks until we were satisfied with the footage we had collected. It made for a really relaxed shooting environment and allowed Max to get into a nice headspace and ride the way he envisioned.”
“I went to Fernie with no expectations or ideas for the video. We just went to each spot and felt out what tricks would be cool versus having things already planned out which helped make things feel organic. It’s awesome to have your friend being the one filming you, it takes off some of the pressure. Dylan and I have filmed a few videos together now and he understands what’s going into each clip which is awesome.”
