High-impact X-Games stunt motorcyclist makes beeline for 3D Polecam Posted: 25/11/2009
High-impact X-Games stunt motorcyclist makes beeline for 3D Polecam John Gillan, one of the world's most experienced Polecam operators, reports the safe but dramatic outcome of a high-impact collision with stunt motorcyclist Todd Potter during shooting for 'X Games 3D: The Movie' for ESPN.
 
"Todd is internationally famous for his death-defying mid-air loops," John Gillan comments. "We were positioned with a Polecam 3D head and support rig at the far end of a very steep take-off ramp. The landing strip was what you expect at the base of a ski slope only this guy was motor-powered and there was no snow to soften the landing. It all looked great as Potter performed a routine twisted swan dive before landing badly and losing control, heading straight towards the camera head. I had half a second to react before he collided. Pure 3D. Bike and rider came through the crash barrier an instant later, destroying the Polecam head. Thanks to the Polecam's high manoeuvrability, neither Todd nor anyone else was hurt. I hate to think what would have happened if we had been using one of the old-style bulky camera cranes; that could have been a very serious accident both for Todd and the production crew."
