BUGGY ROLLIN Videos 2008

A year of challenges

For BUGGY ROLLIN Videos 2008, we prepared the movie for Jim Carrey YesMan. It was like a marathon, and very interesting to work in big movie studios.
Interesting because this was a complete new world for Jean Yves. He had to be Designer, product manager, costume designer, special effect maker, stunt trainer, stunt choreographer, stunt double, location scout approver in the same days. It was also interesting because Jim Carrey always took good care of him.

During the summer we had a trip near Brandon with Nicolas Bonnefoy, and Danny Strasser, and we made the film “speed warriors”  together. If Danny is famous for making beautiful films, he is always looking for the best shot possible. In the pursuit of perfection, time is not counting. You must think that for every shot of their film we spent one hour of preparation. In the result of a few second picture with golden sunshine and beautiful shadows on the surface of asphalt, there ia a lot of care. We hope that you will take time to enjoy the videos.

During this trip,  we could try  the Cesanna Torinese Bob Track. this was the second time in the track for Nick and Jean Yves, but the first time with good camera shot.

In spring we had a challenge for gallileo Tv germany with Martin Siegrist in Almambtrieb, and another one in Japan against a rock star on motorbike.

2007 rising BUGGY SKI in South Korea

Going to snow resort

BUGGY SKI at MUJU Resort BUGGY SKI a MUJU
Rollerman 2007 in Korea, was so special. Jean Yves Blondeau was living at in a studio at MUJU Resort shared with guests and all the tools for building and repair BUGGY ROLLIN and BUGGY SKI. The opportunity to BUGGY SKI every day showed all the weak points of the prototype. Step by step every problem would be solved. Finally Jean Yves obtained a sustainable Ski Armor.

Getting better

Among the trouble shoot, snow infiltration, ski geometry, chest positioning, climat control, connectors strength.
Side benefit was to become very fit and get very balanced body because of the really well balanced effort through the BUGGY SKI.

High 1 best choice

During the winter we moved from Muju resort to High 1 Gangwon Do. Muju is a ski resort from the 80s that had to face bankrupt owners. It had to run on the existing equipments. The machine were old, so the snow was not perfectly prepared, and people would wait almost one hour at the lift on sundays. But the workers were really putting a lot of energy to gently welcome the skiers. Muju was also at a very strategic geographic situation the only ski resort of the half south of korea. It had no problem to get clients.

High 1 was a brand new ski resort. It is situated in a remote area where the employment rate is very low. They organized special trains directly from seoul to the ski resort to bring customers. Our video shows that train, and all the events organized inside. It shows a mutation from BUGGY ROLLIN to BUGGY SKI.

Suddenly all business stopped in South Korea. Business friends moved, phone number changed every things was over. Back to Europe have to start every thing again.

An amazing year of creations 2006

BUGGY SKI CREATION and SWISSPASS

The saddest year of the decennia (lost of Chae Sun) was also the year that saw masterpieces born : Jean Yves Blondeau’s creations 2006.
In the field of pure creation, the BUGGY SKI suit had been successfully functionally developed. It was a designer enthusiastic run through the difficulties finding step by step simplified efficient solutions. It went like this :

  • stuck on trouble
  • find solution by head
  • check available material
  • build a solution
  • test in real on mountain slopes
  • go next level

In Video the work with Danny Strasser near Andermatt produced maybe the best video of BUGGY ROLLIN ever : SWISSPASS. In this video, we speak about emotion, dreams, and respect against the beauty of mountains, and never forget to keep a child heart. A very few people could understand the messages.
We also had a Wonderfull work with Christophe Lebedinsky in winter for BUGGY SKI and summer in the alps.

Small Busan productions

After passing the big wave of Megapass, we had no more big promotion contracts.
We made a few fun advertising, and some aesthetic videos like Igidae that did not catch success.
We also prepared the winter in Muju Resort by producing advertising for the resort with Yvon Labarthe. And that was going to be a great winter for BUGGY SKI

Rollerman Videos until 2005

This is the Rollerman Videos until 2005. The Germain times from 2000 to 2003 . Then arriving in korea and the TV shows made in korea.

Treasure must be hunted.

We still have a lot of video on tape format that has never been transferred to digital support. Thus before 2005 were camera very expensive. So we could not make as much video as we can nowadays.

Video of BUGGY ROLLIN From the beginning until 2000.

pink BUGGY ROLLIN Rollerman Videos until 2005
rollerman step in the air to make the shadow climbs the wall

The firsts video were made with the “pink” suit. It has a very special aesthetic, that would match Tim burton fantasy.
From 1998 came the second Prototype “Carbon”. It was opening a new world of performances.
We tried to re load the videos that were bad quality to Vimeo in order to be bale to enjoy them with bigger screens. And now it is a real pleasure to see how good were already the motions. For example in the Lausanne video, there is a unfinished fast wheeling called Gognoc, that is not performed since a very long time. It is old but every thing was there.

Videos of BUGGY ROLLIN until 2003

During the Germain years, the exploration of the possibilities to roll in bob tracks was very exciting. In TunnelBlick, a video co-produced by Danny Strasser and Jean Yves Blondeau, we make a travel trough the Germain sports facilities.
We also went to Hot Heels, that event became legendary with the passing years.

BUGGY SKI in South Korea 2007

Golden times of BUGGY SKI

From Christmas 2006 to april 2007 we had golden time to BUGGY SKI every day at MUJU RESORT. This is BUGGY SKI in South Korea 2007. With the complicity of Yvon Labarthe we could make almost 30 promotional videos for the resort. We were filming almost every day. Most of video were with BUGGY SKI, and some were only for the promotion of the ski resort such “MUJU WHITE”.

The hours of video material were sleeping during 10 years on a hard disk. When Jean Yves could finally put his eyes on the films, It is a great pleasure to see all that night rides. The sensation of skiing in the night, with the music played on the tracks every where, is very unique. The music is carrying the choreography of motions, and the mood stays in happy dancing level. Another magic in night skiing is that the snow keep good quality and even gets colder and faster as the night progresses.

Jean Yves Blondeau was making show with BUGGY SKI every evening from 8 to 10 pm in the week and from 8 to midnight the week end. During the day he had just enough time to upgrade the prototype and make test in the evening.

Freeride with Xiao Long

The last day, just before Jean Yves Blondeau had to take airplane back to Europe, we decided to go outside the city of Urumqi for freeride.

First we tried a small road near the city. But then Xiao Long was getting frustrated that the road was so short. So he cancelled his own schedule to stay more with Jean Yves. They went together one hour away from the city. The second road was longer but boring. Finally we could find an exciting road starting near a dam in the mountain. On the road, were running with us, chicken, donkeys and cows.

We came just in time back to airport for Jean Yves .
