The new Showtime series SUPER PUMPED about the rise and fall of Uber founder Travis Kalanick – photographed & directed by Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler and Uma Thurman are the stars of the new Showtime series SUPER PUMPED: THE BATTLE FOR UBER. Based on the true story, it is about the meteoric rise and merciless fall of Uber founder Travis Kalanick. We don’t exactly pity him though : Travis Kalanick is a billionaire and, according to the Forbes List 2018, with around 4.8 billion US dollars among the wealthiest Americans.

Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER photographed the key motifs and also filmed the mini trailers for the new showtime series. 

Travis Kalanick stepped down as CEO of Uber in 2017 after five investors who together own more than 40 % of voting power in the company had pressured him to do so. As a member of the strategic and policy forum, Kalanick had been serving as an advisor to the more than controversially discussed US President, Donald Trump, since 2016. On 2 February, 2017, he declared his resignation from the position – stating that his participation was misinterpreted and was not endorsement of President Trump or his agenda.

Playing disgraced former Uber founder Kalanick is Hollywood favorite Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who already had the pleasure of gaining experience in the portrayal of people who are still very much alive with roles as Edward Snowden and Phillippe Petit.

« La peur est un outil, une super alarme. » – Extreme Kayaking World Champion NOURIA NEWMAN for RED BULLETIN – Portraits by Sandro BAEBLER c/o SEVERIN WENDELER

French slalom canoeist Nouria Newman competed internationally from 2007 to 2015. She won two medals at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championship, Gold in 2014 and Silver in 2013. She has remained true to the canoeing sport – but you might say that her tours are becoming more and more unusual each time.

Nouria Newman gained fame thanks to her solo kayak expedition in 2018 which was sponsored by Red Bull. She paddled down the Tsarap - Zanskar - Indus River in seven days, covering a total distance of 375 kilometers. According to her, she is very lucky to still be alive after getting caught on a rock along the way. She made a thirteen-minute video of the trip which can be seen on YouTube. She was also the first woman to ride down a 100-foot waterfall.
