For a commercial for a Korean Energy Drink, they named "Sweat"......(?????)

Group of young hip people playing with big plastic balls, to walk on water or to bounce in/around on a golf course.

Location: Krabi, Thailand

some more balls.

and some more

noooo, please stay away, don't come here, these shootings are rare!

:D :D :D

Really I would be so happy to have this on a regular basis, but it's not the case.

Everyone is invited to come to Thailand, but please leave the rig at home and just enjoy the sun and sea!

These balls are fun... I just did a shoot for Disney Channel with these. The kids were zipped inside them and they raced around a padded course. I was running ahead of them backwards at top speed trying not to get mowed down by some very energetic competitors. It was a lot of fun and the closest I've ever gotten to being Indiana Jones (the opening of Raiders). Yeah for big clear balls! :P

Shot on some cable TV stuff in N Zealand this last winter...

Zorbing has become a sport/attraction in N Zealand. We shot them rolling down hill in NZ both wet with water(to slide in) and people inside and dry just tumbling around inside. The best shot was inside with a plastic bag over all but the end of the lens three people tumbling around in a "wet" zorb..... a kinda intimacy which is not for everyone.

So you pay the fee ride the truck to the top of a fair hill while the balls come up a ball ramp to the top, you get in and they roll it down the hill..... One guy kept on his feet almost all the way down!!!!

Probably this was however more popular than "Sweat"
