Photogallery: Chase Hawk / Oakley

When Chase Hawk asked if I’d be down to tag along and snap some photos while he and Joe Simon filmed for an Oakley project, I said “yes” faster than I could put on some Frogskins or Enduros.

So… off we went, early morning ’til night. I shadow’d Chase and Joe as the whole thing went down and casually snapped away. Watching both of these guys put in work was awesome and I think the video came out damn good, which is what I expected. Joe had the whole thing story-boarded and Chase repeated tricks on demand like a G.

With that said, click below to eyeball some behind the scenes photos of Chase’s Oakley video courtesy of yours truly.


Chase Hawk For Oakley

Anytime you can pair up Joe Simon and Chase Hawk is a good thing. Peep this video for Oakley.

I was on hand during the filming of this, so check back tomorrow for a behind the scenes photogallery.

Joe Simon iPhone 4 edit

Joe Simon posted a few photos of some spots on Twitter last night, then not to long after, said he was editing a iPhone 4 videos… I was kind of expecting some crazy setup with dollies and steady cam’s but Joe kept it simple, opting for grass and his keys as his camera support, while he grabbed a few clips at the 45th st ditch in Austin, TX. It’s going to be interesting to see how many iPhone 4 edits will pop up over the next few months. Will the iPhone become the new flipcam? Scott Marceau, where you at?


Mutiny YouTube HD

I hadn’t really checked out the new YouTube HD stuff until just now. Gaz from Mutiny just hit us up to spread the word about their new YouTube page, where you can watch all their videos in HD quality… It took me a second to figure out how to watch in full quality, but once I clicked on that little button, it all made sense.

I still like Vimeo more, just based off their site design and video player, but it will be interesting to see how HD on YouTube will change things… I’ve always said we’ll talk about watching shitty quality videos in a small box, like our parents talked about watching black and white TV and the days of full quality/full screen HD for everything are quickly coming! By the way, does anyone use Flickr Video?

I guess I kind of got off the Mutiny topic, but make sure to check out their YouTube page because they have put together some amazing videos over the past few years, and even if you’ve seen them all, check em out again… They are just that good!
