Not since the elamenop.com days have I actually sat down and spent a lot of time putting a personal portfolio site together. I’ve always just whipped something together out of necessity, but this latest rendition of my portfolio changes that. The site is broken up into three sections, film/photo/stories… The film section is pretty similar to my last site, but I’m super excited about the photos and stories section. I’ve been shooting photos forever, but have never actually put a real portfolio together. It has been a lot of fun digging through my archives and organizing all my work into specific galleries. The stories section is where I’ll be posting all my personal work from now on. I’m always doing random projects on my own and am looking forward to having a home for them.

The film ‘The Fall’ came out in 2007, but somehow I hadn’t seen it until this past weekend. Directed by Tarsem, an acclaimed music video and commercial director, It was shot in over 20 countries and over the span of four years, financed mostly by my Tarsem him self, so he could avoid the creative restrictions that come with a big studio movie. If you haven’t already seen it, I recommend watching The Fall solely based off the visuals and locations… and If you have seen it, you might as well just watch it again because it’s that good. I swear I was taking screen shots every few seconds. So many incredible locations. Keep reading to see the trailer and a bunch of stills from the movie.
Fraser Byrne sent over this rad film. “We just finished up this wee vid I thought you might appreciate. Although its not ‘bmx’ its in the spirit of DIY, cheap living adventure that I think most BMXers can relate to. The vid is based on a guy called Austin Vince who rode around the world (by the longest route possible) on DR350 dirt bikes with 8 mates. Pretty epic trip to say the least.”
