When JUMP OFF came to Shawinigan to try to realize Bertrand Cloutier’s dream, the team quickly realized the complexity of the challenge ahead of them: the jump in front of the moon was not going to be easy. Our technical team took weeks to prepare for the big moment.
“It was really the craziest moment of the year, says Jean-Michel Gaudreault, director, cameraman and editor at Tribu. To make that shot a success… I honestly didn’t think we had a good chance.”
Bertrand had made this leap from the top of the Cité de l’Énergie dozens and dozens of times over the past 25 years. This time, however, the 66-year-old wanted to realize his vision at all costs… that of making a jump on a full moon on a good night, when the moon shone behind him. Yes, a bit like the cover of the E.T. movie.
