LANGUAGE(S): English


Everything is connected. Each ride is an extension of the one before. Each reentry is a transition to the next launch. Each experience builds on one another toward a flow state of endless progression. Only the settings and perspectives change along this continuum.

In this film by Brett Rheeder and Harrison Mendel, the sequence of individual movements are all linked together as a cohesive collection, with each maneuver unique yet forming a coherent visual journey across ever-changing landscapes by maintaining a locked perspective.

Creating this visual trick of relentless flow and seamless transitions from one scene to the next was a technical challenge for both rider and cinematographer, and it required intense planning and dedication from the entire team to work through these problems. Anchoring the point of view to bring the audience along on Brett’s journey as everything else moves seamlessly along the continuum.

Jury Quote

Continuum transports us through a multiverse of landscapes via a mountain biker steeped in a perfect state of flow. Seamless transitions and a dreamy soundtrack punctuated by the crunching sound of tires on dirt anchor us in the moment, transporting us on the rider’s journey. The brilliance of this film is its simplicity; ironically and expertly achieved through complex, difficult and ultimately innovative shooting and riding techniques. Immensely satisfying and exciting, this gorgeous two minute film is the embodiment of the phrase “always leave them wanting more.”

Karen Duthie, VIMFF 2023 Jury
