Annual action sports films—those highlight reels released throughout the year by athletes, brands, and media houses—are produced through a partnership of funding, talent, and distribution. As the brands, which provide the funding, strive for more authenticity with their audiences, they’ve increasingly turned to the athletes for direction. Hollywood directors are looking to capture some of that same authenticity in scripted films, filming action sequences in-camera with big-name athletes rather than with green screens and CGI. The surf film Blue Crush used surfers Keala Kennelly and Kate Skarratt; Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon hired BASE jumper J.T. Holmes. (más…)

No CGI was used in the film, which required lots of preparation and led to a historical BASE jumping stunt.
Five wing-suited pilots navigated the crack in Walenstadt, Switzerland, for a scene in which Bodhi and his band of outlaws cut loose a huge pile of cash above a poverty-riddled town. (más…)
Who needs CGI when you have Chris Sharma and Dani Andrada as stuntmen? Watch these guys climb alongside 3,200-foot Angel Falls in Venezuela—the tallest waterfall in the world—in this exclusive rock climbing behind-the-scenes from the new Point Break. All climbing stunts in the film were done in real life—no CGI, no green-screen.
Sharma, who doubles as a climber for Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey), calls the filming experience on Auyan Tepuy, site of Angel Falls, “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” in a previous interview with Rock and Ice. “Auyan Tepuy is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been.”
