Sometimes simplicity works— especially when it’s gorgeous. In this case, Outside Television created an opening sequence that focuses primarily on the incredible cinematography powering this behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to capture extreme sports footage. What we ultimately watch on screen may look seamless and breathtaking, but the hours of craft, trial and error, and ultimately filmmaking expertise is what drives the final result. Outside also manages to capture not only the beauty of the locations and stunt work, but also the behind-the-scenes joy of capturing extreme athletes in all of their glory. It makes us want to watch—and that’s all we can ask from an opener.
