The Erie Canal served as a backdrop for Lockport's latest foray into mass media as producers for a Red Bull "web clip" shot video and photos in the canal Tuesday and Wednesday.

The crew, consisting of about eight people, rode up and down the canal with multiple high-speed video cameras and a motorboat-mounted light setup to catch images professional wake skaters in the canal.

Kyle Arcomano, a Red Bull employee from New Jersey, got soaked from head to toe as he rode under a stream of canal water being shot from a Lockport Fire Department truck Tuesday afternoon just south of the West Genesee Street Bridge. While cameraman Chris Garrison of Orlando shot ample photos of the act, it was not part of the intended web clip. LFD's presence was happenstance.

Actually, according to City Clerk Richelle Pasceri, the Red Bull crew had requested to have an ambulance on standby but rescinded the request when they realized how close they were to the city's municipal building, where the ambulances are housed.

The finished web clip, which will feature professional wake skaters Brian Grubb and Andrew Pastura, is expected to be available for public consumption on on Sept. 9. Other images and videos from the shoot will also be available at a later date on the Red Bull website.
