When our friends at Ride BMX released word about the new NORA CUP for “web video part”, it sparked a discussion within the OTX office regarding the difference between web “videos”, web “edits”, web “video parts”, promos, what should be considered what and if there’s even a difference at all. I’ve seen lots of opinions regarding BMX on the web over the years, so I figured this would be a fun topic to delve into.
With that said, I hit up a handful of riders, videographers and industry folk to ask them the following:
In your opinion…
Is there a difference between a “web video” and a “web edit”? If so, describe how the terminology differs?
Should something labeled “web video part” be part of a full video, or can it be a standalone thing?
If a rider releases a new solo 2 minute (or so) collection of kick ass footage online, you would classify this as a…?
If someone releases a “one night at House park with the homies” thing, you would classify this as a…?
If a full length video that’s been in the works for 2 years, has proper art direction and production value is released FREE online, is it considered a “web video” or just a “video”?
What would you describe Fiend’s “FIENDING” as?
Does a projects method of distribution (physical DVD or online) affect your opinion?
Can product promos that feature great riding mixed with product info and images also be considered web edit/video/parts? Or are they just “promos”?

Throughout the peice, new designations pop up, opinions differ and uncertainty lingers among some. Pretty interesting.
Darryl Tocco is no stranger to the video game. He rides in them and produces them as well. With all the work he's put in, I'm definitely curious to hear his opinions. With that said, I hit him up to speak on some of his favorite videos and parts.

Long time Darryl Tocco fan right here. No way I wouldn’t enjoy this.
With that said, we’ve hit up Ben Hittle, Sean Sexton, Aaron Smith, Darryl Tocco, Lloyd Wright, Dan Coller, Tony Hamlin and Chris Doyle to reflect on their time making this video and to recount any memorable moments that come to mind.
Thanks to Jay Roe for the assistance!

Always love an Albert Mercado edit. This one is an awesome park edit from Kink filmed and edited by Darryl Tocco. Check it!
Check out this fun edit with Jay Roe and Darryl Tocco at their local ghetto park. Keep an eye out for some Fudger clips as well!
Recently while watching the Bad Timing promo, I literally thought to myself, “Damn, Darryl Tocco is a sick multitasker” after his first clip. Instant Feature!!! By “Multitasker”, I mean a great rider who doubles as a filmer/editor (or vise versa), which Darryl is.
With that said, I rounded up some assorted topics for Darryl to elaborate on. Click below to check that out.
Thanks to Keith Terra for the pic.
