Red Bull RAW 100: Finn Illes

Words by Flow | Images by Red Bull / TOPO Films

Brakes? Don’t need ’em. Finn Illes is 16 years of pure speed.

The Red Bull RAW 100 series of videos has really captured us. Each episode sees a different Red Bull athlete paired up with a videographer, with a very simple brief: 100 seconds long, no music, no slow motion.

It’s an awesome recipe for drawing out all the talents of the film makers and showcasing the riders’ talents too – you feel yourself being more and more focused as you watch the vids, infinitely more engaged with what the rider must be feeling.

In the latest release, 16 year old Finn Illes shows us some crazy commitment with an amazing BC wilderness back drop, shot by TOPO Films.
