Believe it! Redbull pro trials bike rider Danny MacAskill uses Cape Town as his "playground" to promote the Leica V-Lux 30 Camera. He caught my attention last year with the release of the epic short film, "Way Back Home" and you can see my post about it here. It truly is an awesome sight to see him showing off his talent on local streets. Highlights from this video include: the aerial shots around the CBD, tail-whip off high ledge, the gap he jumps (without much speed) between the bridges where the Giant Vuvuzela was over the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the sunset shots near the Glen. Massive respect to the man!
Catch Danny at La Med being interviewed on the making-of with some extra footage here.
