David Knight - 5th Sept 2014

Nez takes a virtually new sport - certainly unknown in the UK - called flyboarding, and made it the climax of an intriguing video for Ten Walls' Walking With Elephants. 

With a growing number of costumed runners appearing in the familiar setting of Dungeoness - captured on land and air - the imagery is arresting from the start. But then we get the gobsmacking bit, with the costumed men leaping unfeasibly dolphin-like through the waves off the Kent coast.

This is flyboarding - but with all the gear required to make this happen, the jetpacks attached to the flyboarders' feet, the jet-skis and tube that pull them, all rendered invisible in post. Which turns the arresting into the mesmerizing.
