Devin Graham is a videographer who produces extreme sports videos for his nearly 5 million subscribers on Youtube under the name devinsupertramp. He has become a well known star and teamed up with NorCal Jetovator to produce one of the coolest videos I’ve ever seen.
The idea is simple – create a Star Wars battle scene on the Sacramento River using NorCal Jetovators. Okay, maybe it’s not that simple. Even if you don’t like Star Wars you can still appreciate the amazing accomplishment of shooting this short film. Check out the video below and see if you can spot the local landmarks on the Sacramento River:
Now let’s recap: You have Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia in a waterfront battle with storm troopers on flying speeder bikes (yes, I had to look that up) through Redding on the Sacramento River. I noticed the Bonnyview Bridge and other recognizable houses along the banks of the river.
But the most incredible part of the short film is how they turned this:
That is a NorCal Jetovator, a water propelled, personal watercraft accessory that allows the operator to safely experience flight. They are located in Redding and have a boutique at Bridge Bay Resort on Shasta Lake.
So if you didn’t recognize some of the local spots in this film, here is a behind-the-scenes video of how they brought everything to life:
So you can see how they used the Turtle Bay entrance into the river and the owner of NorCal Jetovator created custom Jetovators to create a Star Wars battle scene over water.
I am calling this my MUST SEE video of the year. So cool!
