For Rudimental’s Waiting All Night, Nez and producer Elliott Tagg travelled to LA to reconstruct, in the form of a mini drama-documentary, the inspirational story of Kurt Yeager, a top BMX pro rider who came back against all the odds to compete again after suffering a terrible injury.

Using numerous cameras – some fixed on BMX bikes – not only captures the full horror of riding your bike in front of a speeding truck (yikes) but also the redemptive thrill of the sport.

NEZ on making the video for Rudimental’s Waiting All Night:

“We came up with the idea and through our research found Kurt Yaeger who was a famed BMX rider that lost his leg in a tragic accident. After years of fighting and training Kurt beat the odds and got back on his bike and is once again competing in the X games.

“We got in contact with him, and after lengthy Skype calls with Kurt we adjusted the original idea to keep it as close to his story as possible.

“Then we cast Kurt’s close friends in supporting roles and attempted to reconstruct the events through a BMX documentary style film – as if all this footage had been accumulated over time, and all we did was edit it together.

“We shot over three days in LA, and everybody had a camera – from Kurt’s friends to Dan Curwin the commissioner. And then we came back to London with 45 hours of footage for Max Windows.”
