Justin Kosman sent through an update to get us up to speed on The HUNT project. Should be gooood.
Final 14. The Hunt BMX Video Project enters final stretch.
It’s been a long summer of clocking footy and uploading clips and the final fourteen have arrived. Broken arms, crashed hard drives, corrupt files, and missed deadlines are all part of the program when working with such a wide variety of riders and filmers from all over the world. I’ve seen all the full-length parts and it’s better than I thought possible. The riders and filmers who committed to putting in work pulled out all the stops and went hard. Some riders go the extra mile for a DVD project and it’s going to be obvious when you watch this video. A big thanks to all the riders who had faith in this project and I’m glad I was able to resurrect a place where amazing video parts can live on a DVD.
The first annual Hunt BMX Video project is ready to fill the judges eyes with some of the most progressive ramp and street riding ever put to tape. We’ve been uploading teasers for the past couple weeks and we’ve reached the final list of riders that will show the judges their full-length parts.
Judges will begin voting at the end of the week so be sure to tweet to the following guys your favorite riders.

Once the judges have spoken, the top ten video parts will be released on DVD with the top video part winning $5,000, second place gets flown to Barcelona courtesy Odyssey BMX and the rest of the money trickles down to the top-five. Odyssey will be picking one rider from the top-ten to be on the Odyssey flow team for a year and another lucky rider from the top ten will be getting fresh Vans shoes for all of next year. Defgrip will be premiering the Monster Energy Best Bonus nomination mixtape as well as the Pro-Tec Best Trick nomination mixtape where an extra $1000 will be awarded for each top clip, picked by Head Judge Will Stroud.
The DVD bonus material will include: Scotty Cranmer Monster Edit, Vans Team Mixtape, Odyssey BMX Team Mix.
Videos will be pressed and shipping by October 15! The most exciting part of this project is still a head of us and we’re already working on 2012……
