Check out the interview after the jump –
How’s the stuff going with Vimby?
So far so good… No complaints from my end.
How did you hook up with them?
Marco linked us up for the most part since he was filming for Lotek and Vimby most of the summer, so the idea of putting the two together felt fairly natural from the start.
What made you decide to move from a full DVD to web episodes?
I personally was never to into the idea of a DVD, a lot of people have this perception online video gets forgotten quickly and DVD’s last forever but I don’t think that could be more backwards. That’s no different then not accepting mediums like digital photography, CD’s, or even VHS… Beta had better quality but it didn’t matter since more people were using VHS. A good video is good regardless of where it’s played.
How many more videos can we expect from all the SF footage?
There were 3 in total of edited SF footage but there will most likely be more featuring other riders and things that didn’t fit into the length of the edits so they will probably get there own.
Do you have more video projects planned with Vimby?
Yeah this was actually just sort of a launch to Lotek/Vimby working together so there will be plenty more to come.
Who has your favorite clip from last summer?
My favorite has to be the over-under air with jay and Eddie at the ditch. Hoang’s nose manual up that huge ledge in the second video definetly blew me away though.
Did you get many riding clips?
No my back was hurt the whole time we worked on this project, I just started filming again this month.
How was it working with Marco?
Real good, he really managed the majority of the project and once we figured that Vimby was the way we wanted to go with it everything was smooth sailing. it’s not easy to trust someone else filming when it’s for your own project and I couldn’t be happier with the footage.
What is your stance on Mike Hoders throat tat?
Big rock and roll fan.
What is better, beta VHS or HD?
Wow skipped right over DVD haha. There is no best, they all are great when used in an interesting way. It all ends up on the web and last time i checked though and neither of those choices actually exist online.
