A recent graduate from the University of Maryland, College Park has used his engineering skills to create a device that revolves a GoPro (Hero 4 Black) around a person at high speeds to resemble the Matrix bullet time effect. This alumnus is also a stunt man specializing in pyrotechnics. He shows his pride for UMD by combining his talents of engineering and fire breathing in front of the McKeldin Library on campus.

This was all filmed during the east coast snowpocalyspe this past weekend (from winter storm Pax and Quintus). Most of the features are from Federal Hill. We also shot around the Baltimore area including the Baltimore Skate Park.

Not many people gets a chance to feel what it’s like to be on fire in a controlled environment. After several attempts to do a stunt on fire that was worthy of a video, we only had enough fire retardant gel for more one stunt. Luckily Daniel managed to pull this off on the first attempt. It’s probably the most intense thing we have ever done and now it’s time to start searching for the next challenge.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with any aspect of our fire stunts. We are especially thankful to Gabe and all his friends who are featured in the BTS video here:

The JoyRiders crew decided to do it all in one day. That’s right, surfing at the beach in San Diego, snowboarding in the mountains at Big Bear Mountain and riding dune buggies in the desert at Superstition Mountain. And if that wasn’t enough they finished it off with some skateboarding at night back in San Diego. The whole day was documented so they could share their story of one of the most amazing days of their lives.
While we are getting food at the drive through, a “giant gorilla” comes out from the woods, grabs the food and trashes it, which scares the employees and even the manager. Luckily the employees and manager at Taco Bell are super awesome and replaced the order for us. After convincing the manager that two tacos of the tacos were still good we got 5 tacos for the price of 3. It was a good day.
