Jeremy Grant grew up in Nelson, British Colombia, Canada and was hooked on watching and wanting to make ski movies. Some friends in his high school class got into mountain biking. These friends just so happened to be some of the best freeride mountain bikers at the time including Mike Kinrade, Robbie Bourdon and Joe Schwartz to name a few. Jeremy opted to hold the camera when the boys started sending 20 foot drops on their bikes.
Jeremy started as an editor for Freeride Entertainment on the New World Disorder films back in 2003. He went on to become Cinematographer and built his way up to creative director until going out as a freelancer in 2019.
Jeremy’s the man behind the iconic Red Bull Rampage content production and event livestreaming. He’s been to every Rampage for 21 years as well as directed around the world from the Himalayas to the Gobi Desert, from sold-out concerts in L.A. to uninhabited islands at the North Pole. His epic award winning mountain biking films, Where The Trail Ends, North Of Nightfall and many more have set the bar for stunning cinematography and pushed the progression of what we know as freeride mountain biking today.
I met Jeremy out in Spain last year where he was filming a segment for his latest mountain biking movie Esperanto on a purpose build slopestyle course for Emil Johansson.
We chat about Esperanto as well as how he got into filming in Nelson BC, progression in freeride mountain biking, being at Red Bull Rampage from the inception, mixing commercial work and action sports productions, team work and and loads more!
