Awesome camera work on fear by New York Times

This is what full screen, immersive stories should look like. A NYT production that takes you straight into the (snowboarding) action, thanks to great cinematography (by Emily Rhyne, Noah Throop, Nick Waggoner).

The angle? What fear does to a snowboard or skiing athlete. Well told in action shots, interview and background info. Enter cmd-F territory.

How real the fear can get and how things can go seriously wrong, comes together in ‘The Crash Reel’, an amazing film on the recovery of snowboarder Kevin Pearce, main competitor of Olympic champion Shaun White.
