Bode took on a training run wearing cutting edge camera equipment to create an unforgettable 360° film of a truly adrenaline-pumping sports experience.
He is not competing in the 2015/16 World Cup, and performed his run exclusively for Eurosport.
To produce the video, GoPro cameras were attached to each ski stick. The rig, attaching the GoPro to the stick, was designed and produced using a 3D Printer. The video was filmed and produced by Eurosport in collaboration with the Discovery VR (Virtual Reality) team, which has previously produced 360° videos for Eurosport.
