Disney’s reality series Next X gives 9 snowboarders and skiers a once in a lifetime opportunity to shred their brains out at Winter X Games Europe.
9 of Europe’s best up and coming winter stars attend the Next X Training Camp in La Plagne, France. For one mind blowing week the riders are put to the ultimate test both on and off the slopes by 3 of the world’s best winter X Games Professional Athletes, Hampus Mosesson, Cheryl Mass and Bene Mayr.
The young riders are judged on Style, Attitude and Technical Ability and at the end of the week just one rider is chosen, to perform in front of thousands at the Winter X Games Europe. That rider is the Next X.
Next X was BOOM’s first commission with Disney EMEA. A reality series set in a winter wonderland where an expert crew of production specialists ensured the safe working practice of working with children in challenging conditions as well as capturing action on kickers, rails, jumps and half-pipes.
BOOM cast 9 children from UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Poland, Turkey, Netherlands and Scandinavia which involved a thorough licensing process, governed by the French Child Licensing Authority. The shoot demanded stunt and safety coordinators, location chaperones and specialist production crew and equipment in order to film in a highly demanding environment.
Over 30 crew captured the children’s journey in glorious HD and the series was broadcast on Disney XD in over 20 countries in Europe. A high volume digital package included bloopers, behind the scenes and extra’s.
