I was asked by lululemon to follow around Edmonton Oiler's captain, Andrew Ference, as he traveled with his team to Boston and NYC. The purpose of the project was to highlight his abs. His abs, and some men's product that the company was dropping.
Our team ran around Boston and NYC to all of Andrew's favourite hangouts – an East Baaaaston deli, a vegan restaurant in NYC, to practice and pre-skate. I bounced, tripped, sweat and struggled and amazingly, the footage didn't really show. What was exciting for me was that this was my first crack at shooting with the Ronin, a very reasonable priced camera stabilizer. The Canon c100 was also a nice accompaniment.
What I should also mention is that I can do about 35 lady push ups in about 45 seconds. I am not bragging, I am simply amazed that I had the foresight to do some upper body/ab work before the trip. The Ronin is about 30 pounds, or at least it feels like 30 and you get tired really quickly. If you use this device, take every opportunity to put it down or hand it off to someone who can do more push ups than you.
