I Stand Corrected

With Vampire Weekend getting ready to release a new album, I’ve been revisiting their previous material, wearing more plaids and trying to apply to Ivy League colleges. ALSO! I’ve revisited the video part that introduced me to Vampire Weekend in the first place; Dan Cox in Tomorrow We Work. I loved Dan’s part and this video as a whole, so check it out again.

Shout out to Joe Cox.

Why Empire’s Bad Idea Works For Me.

It seems like just yesterday that Tom from Empire was berating (playfully more or less) Dave Parrick on Twitter for the delays on wrapping up Bad Idea. That berating seemed to go on forever, was comical and whether Empire knew it or not, it turned into somewhat of a natural built in marketing plan for the video. Well, It’s finally here. I purchased my copy a week or so ago.

In a nutshell:
Great riding + Dave Parrick’s touch + Surprising/adventurous Soundtrack = Bad Idea

Going on and on about the cast of riders in this video would be a waste of your time, because you should already be familiar with how uniquely talented they all are. Tom Smith is the only exception to this as he is somewhat unknown, but is certainly a nice addition. Everyone shines.

Where this video becomes uber-enjoyable for me, is through Dave’s editing and the music selection. I am actually in AWE of the music chosen for this video and how well each song works with each respective part. There are certain songs that you think would never work in a BMX video, that totally end up working in Bad Idea. There are no far reaching obscure songs or “flavor of the moment” acts, just timeless music that most of you will surely know. I am not going to rattle off any bands, you will have to get the video to find out or scour the internets. Perhaps my musical tastes just match well with whoever chose music, but the formula is a good one.

As for Dave, what can I say? If he had to spend the last 2171475 years making sure the riding, editing and music was in perfect harmony, than I’d say it was all worth it. Not too long, not too short, easily watchable. Good job.

Pick up Bad Idea if you like owning classics.

 

The Making of Making

Don’t know too much about this project, but I’m really into the video that Wieden + Kennedy created for this Nike campaign. The sound design is beyond incredible.

Orchid Footwork In Full

“Footwork”, a bmx video presented by Orchid Footwear. Filmed by Ryan Navazio, edited by Derek Adams, visual fx by Josh Clancy.

Let ‘Em Talk

Cult’s “Let Em Talk” is easily one of my favorite videos. It’s like National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, I can watch it anytime.

United “Downtime” Video

Bored from eating too much fruit cake and listening to Aunt Gertrude?? United have you covered. Sit back and enjoy!!

Between mid January and the end of June 2011, following the release of our most recent full length DVD ‘This Is United’, we rented a small vacation apartment in Huntington Beach.

During this time, team riders from our pro, am and world teams flew out to visit, ride, relax, film some clips and soak up some of that Californian lifestyle.

Featuring: Nathan Williams, Ryan Lloyd, Corey Martinez. Alex Valentino, Ashley Charles, Ryan Metro, Luke Peeters, Geoff Slattery, Roy Van Kempen, Dan Boiski, Jimmy Rushmore, Christian Rigal, Kye Forte, Leo Forte & Dean Hearne.

Premiere: Skavenger

A big thank you to Bob Scerbo and the Skavenger dudes.

Preview: FBM’s Thousand Yard Stare

Steve Crandall and the FBM crew are at it again with a new one called “Thousand Yard Stare”, which you can check a preview of by clicking below.

But first, some words from the Cran Man!

Some time ago, after various web edits, mixtapes, and road trip video’s, the FBM crew decided to embark on a journey towards our first full feature DVD in a long while…

Minus the equipment, the budget and the resource that many projects require, we relied solely on the character, creativity, and the sheer talent of the guys who make up FBM, and gave it a shot. No hype, no bells and whistles, and not likely to to appeal to the candy fed mainstream, we proudly put together this new video, featured in this preview.

These are the guys that make FBM so unique, It’s an honor to say I am a part of the group, and to be able to share this with everyone. For us, this is BMX, this is how we live it, and like they say, It’s like you are really seeing beyond, when you have been in the shit for so long, you get that look, the Thousand Yard Stare… Enjoy!

– Steve Crandall

FEATURE: MAKING “LAST CHANCE”

The Demolition crew have just about wrapped up filming for their latest project, Last Chance. It’s all being put together now, and a premier is roughly scheduled for sometime in April.

Considering the team and the amount of time that’s been put into this project, I figured it would be cool reach out to main dudes with parts and get their take on working on the video.

I asked them all one simple question:
What comes to mind from your time filming for this video and the sessions?

Click below to check it out.

Please note, there’s plenty more riders featured in split parts and mix sections.

Thanks to Joey Cobbs, Brian Castillo and Chris Long for the pics and help.
