The Insane Inflatable 5k
The Insane Inflatable 5k Shoot
Wow. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over threeweeks since we shot the Insane Inflatable 5k down in Midland, TX. It was one of the most energetic and tiring shoots we’ve had in a long time.
We started out the morning shooting a couple of time lapses from a crows-nest around 6:30 am. For us, that is really early. From there, it was on to (nearly) all candid shots. Jacob and I ran around for about 5 hours. At one point, I put on my GoPro chest mount and made my way through most of the obstacles. It was quite insane (as the name suggests).
I also got the Phantom Quad-copter out and flew it around with the GoPro to get some aerial footage. I was able to acquire some decent footage, but, the wind didn’t agree, so, that was a challenge.
All in all, the Insane Inflatable 5k was a blast and a very successful shoot.
The Insane Inflatable 5k Run
It is no secret that I’m not a runner nor have I ever (in my adult life) participated in any running events. The Insane Inflatable 5k, however, is one that you can bet I will be attending again.
It was an extremely fun atmosphere and it wasn’t intimidating at all.
When we got there, we really didn’t know what to expect. We knew it was a 5k run with bounce-houses. Boy, were we wrong. As you can see from the video, these aren’t your kids’ birthday jumpers. These took me back to the days of Discovery Zone when the obstacles were larger than life and you could eat an entire pizza and play the whole thing off before you left. These bouncy obstacles were huge and they were a blast.
I completely recommend anyone go out to the Insane Inflatable 5k if there is one coming near you and take the whole family. It is a family friendly environment and they do have dedicated “kids only” waves (of course if you’re a parent or guardian, you can run it with them).
