After spending a season filming with Pat, he wanted to use his footage to create a tribute to an influential person in his life who had recently passed, Mike Larsen a.k.a. Eyedea. Picking the track “How Eye One The Write To Think” from Oliver Hart, Pat wanted to construct the beginning of the video as an introduction that, in a way, reflected the pace and feel of the music. The final video has a self written introduction by Pat himself as well as a portrait charcoal drawing done by artist Brian Curan.
The past few weeks have brought a handful of new projects to work on. Most recently finished are two posters; one for the Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour and one for the Shred Circuit. Be sure to check both of these events out as they are both going to be a lot of fun. The MMW Camp Tour is all about teaching kids how to have fun on their snowboards. Every camper leaves with an arm full prizes after 2 days of shredding with the guest pro coaches. If the Camp is not for you it’s all good because the Shred Circuit is for everyone and both events travel together. Carrying over the same kind of energy and fun from the Camp Tour, the shred circuit is a contest series not to be missed. One winner from each stop will be flown to Winter Park Colorado to compete in the finals.
Fresh from my editing studio, aka our spare bedroom at the foot of the Rockie Mountains, is an cut of some fun summer shred. Every week myself and the So-Gnar crew pile into Pat’s truck and roll up to Copper for a day of snowboarding, skating and fun! Then in the evenings we get all the campers together for a ‘creative session’ on some choice features and stoke them out with some free swag. Check out the summer fun, more to come!
Spring time you say? Almost summer you say? Time to shred we say!
Fortunately for us, the Rockie Mountains are in our back yard. So one fine spring morning a crew of Brook Corning(father), Chris Corning(son), Pat Milbery and myself decided it was time to get our snowboard fix. With shovels in hand and the barrels welded(thanks Tony), the day was ripe for a good session. Check out the fun and beware the trickery!
I’ve been on the road a bit recently and have definitely been keeping busy. For a the better part of a week I was running around northern Minnesota with some of the Red Bull athletes including So-Gnar’s Pat Milbery. Things with that crew where pretty crazy and tons of fun. Then it was off to Los Angeles to cover the X-Games again with Pat and also for Street Factory Media. Well, I finally caught my breath and have finished up 2 edits. The first is of some more Copper Woodward Camp fun, complete with wrecks and giveaways. The second, features Pat and some of the camp coaches like Erich Dummer, throwing down on the Jump under a blue summer sky.
IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES – WOODWARD AT COPPER EDIT
SUMMER JUMP SESSION – WOODARD AT COPPER EDIT #2
Hope you enjoyed those edits, there are plenty more to come. The X-Games edit is in the mix, as we speak the Minnesota and Woodward footage is logged and waiting. I’m also finishing work on a interview layout for Arkade Magazine that I’m supper hyped on. Check back soon, there’ll be plenty to see.
Recently I hopped on a plane with Pat Milbery and headed to Austin Texas for what turned out to be a busy, eventful, fun trip. Straight from the airport we hit up Lake Austin for some wave shredding action with Griff, Small Hands and some other Austin Homies. The following day was an Art Installation followed up by some live Hip Hop and another 6 am pool party. The hospitality shown to us was amazing from places to crash, to not having to pay for a thing when we went out our friends in the ATX took care of us and made sure we had a good time.
This summer I have been tagging along with Reed and Milbs to the summer camps at Woodward Copper. Basically, we show up with more prizes than kids and stoke them out on shred! There are no points for second place… or first place for that matter, it’s “All about fun and games.” We look for kids having fun, learning new tricks or having good style and hand out some prizes. What’s really cool, is with so much free stuff pretty much every camper ends up with something.
It’s pretty rad having snow and snow-flex at your disposal. Check out the edit and see what I mean.
There’s all ready another edit in the mix from a trip I took with Pat to Austin. This one’s gonna be a good one with an art install, live hip-hop, wake-boarding and more.
See you then and thanks for stopping by.
