The Old World is the first dedicated European bike movie that is bridging the gap between mountain bike and BMX riding but also between action sport movies and feature films. 4 years in the making, The Old World touches down at a number of unique European locations – from the remote fjords of Norway & majestic Scottish highlands, to rough alpine singletrack and the magical metropolis of Paris – the team travelled for two years to portrait the rich continental riding landscape and its biking stars.
Finding a secluded piece of land, where ones imagination can truly run wild, is no walk in the park. Finding it on a continent, where our species already claimed almost every square kilometer of the map is even harder. Building a secret Freeride line of breathtaking proportions on it… well that is a challenge on a whole other level. This is where Szymon Godziek from the @Godziek Brothers & Nico Vink arrive into the picture. The two MTB heavyweights embarked on a 6-weeks-long dig & ride mission in Kudowa-Zdrój in Poland, where they joined forces with the Tillmann Brothers film crew & Singletrack Glacensis. The team created nothing short of a masterpiece that became an integral part of The Old World movie.
Chris Akrigg is a man of an exquisite taste when it comes to bikes and ways of using these beautiful machines. Same could be said for the Tillmann Brothers when it comes to filming bikers & choosing places to film them. Therefore it is not hard to imagine that joining forces & travelling to Scotland resulted in an absolute banger of a segment in The Old World Movie.
As with any of these endeavours, so much more has happened than one gets so embrace in the final product. Every mouth-watering shot presented a unique challenge for both sides of the camera lens & countless failed attempts. It is not rare that documenting the process itself results in a Behind the Scenes video as entertaining as the real deal. Luckily for us, the crew in the Scottish Highlands had this covered.
