The location next day (July 7th) wasn’t as difficult as the one the day before. We were further down Neretva, where the river is wider and slower. The cliff was next to the road on the other bank. We first did the interviews. As we wanted to have a crane at the top of the cliff we did some preliminary tests on the ground.
Then we sat in the boats and drove on the other side. The climbing wasn’t difficult as we had some climbing gear to help and protect us (Petzl Jumar). When we came up we hauled up our equipment with ropes.
I pieced together the crane at the top and placed it on the edge. It was difficult to handle cause I didn’t have a display to monitor my crane moves. The jumps were also sparse so I couldn’t practice the camera movement.
Orlando Duque and Lorens Listo from Mostarja did only seven jumps (Orlando five) one of them together so we finished quickly. The next day we did a teaser for the ed Bull Cliff Diving Activation Neretva long clip.
