A short video clip, I shot from video village, of three cameras rolling on NFR and CFR rodeo cowboy Sam Kells, as he shares the helm of Caleb Odell with me for a brilliant Bronc ride and dismount.
Thanks Sam for making Caleb look like a hero.
Also I’d just like to make a shout out to all the stunt performers and cowfolk who work on the show. The authenticity of what we do would be massively compromised if it were not for the talented and skilled performances of our stunt team. Thank you Tom Erkison, our stunts corrdinator, for making it all happen and keeping everyone safe. I truley believe, at least in my case, that Caleb Odell is not just a facet of myself, but an amalgamation of different artists (cowboys and stuntmen) who really shape and bring Caleb to life. Many of Caleb Odell’s mannerisms and finite details are largely based on input from and my receptivity of how the cowboys, Tom Erikson in particular, navigate life.
Hope you guys enjoy the video, and my added bit of humor at the end.
