A look behind the scenes of this one-of-a-kind film, produced by Stink Studios and directed by film-making duo David & Douglas.
The unique practices of the two urban explorers was a central part of the film concept. Whilst Johan's freerunning reflect the dynamism of the building itself, Trashhand's images capture that dynamism in a single moment, they "capture that moment and break its rule, and hold on to that second and that moment forever."
"What thrills me the most about my work are the different jumps, stunts and locations that make every moment unique. Each instant creates a unique movement that will never be reproduced."
The biggest jump in the film was between two of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao's unconnected terraces. There are more than 5 meters between these terraces and the drop between them is 40 meters high.
"Each curve and every platform influenced my jumps and stunts. It was strange to become familiar with such unusual architecture; for example, to run across a titanium surface that is slippery and robust at the same time. All my landings had to be adapted to this strange, new environment."
At its heart, the film's exploration of new, challenged and reimagined perspectives aims to capture the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s 20th anniversary motto “Art Changes Everything.” This is certainly true in the case of the Guggenheim Bilbao; a museum that transformed the city of Bilbao itself whilst also providing the home for artwork that helps re-imagine the world around us.
