Vito did a really nice job of filming and editing a clip of the recent Swiss tree climbing comp in Lausanne…
One of the things I thought he captured well was the varied textures and colours you encounter when working around trees, as well as the people involved.
A refreshingly different take from the seemingly innumerable hours of wobbly helmet cam footage uploaded to YouTube and co.
Thank you for your work, Vito.
That was a gnarly Masters’ Challenge, by the way: a stand of Scots pine, not tall, but presenting a real challenge in regards to the busy structure, rope angles, brittle wood properties etc. Just goes to show that the Masters’ tree need not be the tallest on the site, on the contrary… choosing this kind of object allows the audience to get up close and personal – and gain a better understanding of the skills involved in what we do.
