Danny Macaskill on The Ridge
Danny Macaskill, known for his Red Bull sponsored films, has partnered with Cut Media to produce #TheRidge, featuring a death-defying ride along the Cuillin Ridgeline on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Shot over weeks in June 2014, the film tracks Danny’s ascent from Loch Scavaig in the Cuillin Mountains up to Inaccessible Ridge and back again. BBC Scotland will be following through with a behind-the-scenes documentary. Sponsors for this film included Five Ten, ENVE Composites, Santa Cruz Bicycles and Visit Scotland.
Filming was produced at Cut Media by director/producer Stu Thomson, director of photography Scott Marshall, production manager Amber Thomson, colourist Guido Schneider, sound designer Chris Prescott, titles designer Sandra Ord, with drone pilot Lec Park, mountain guide Matt Barratt from Skye Adventure, assistants Alan Blyth and Paul Smail.
