This new clip, shot on March 14, 2016 is the first full immersion clip of 2016. It is a chase scene. I am wearing jeans and a sleeveless shirt. I slog through a little bit of mud and run through some grass, but before you could pry your boots out of ankle deep clay, I’m sinking into some really deep mud. When I say “really deep”, I mean it was really deep. Even when I was below the surface with my toes pointed down, I never encountered any sign of a bottom.
The cool thing about the spot I picked is that it drops off from just over knee deep to bottomless in one step. It really does catch you off guard.
I spend about 10 minutes sinking out of sight in this clip. I get 3 mouthfuls of mud before I go under. I did that for Gamwam, because I know he likes that sort of thing. When I finally did slip below the surface, I kept going down in search of a bottom. When it came time to come back up, it was a little further than I expected. Of course, you can’t see any of that. You see only the mud pulsing and lots of bubbles bursting at the surface.
The two camera angles on the final sink complement each other well. Technically, it is one of my better videos. Everything worked pretty much like I wanted it to. That doesn’t happen often.
