Little preview of "Brokenlife" which will be finished sometime next year. I just put some of the clips that I had on my computer in.

Don't have barspins yet, But I'm working on them. The video will be like fifteen to twenty minutes hopefully. It's hard to get a lot of footage without repeating the same spots and tricks since we can only film in riding distance.

At least you are working on them. I'm too scared to try it.

Haha I always wondered what the colors were for. I assumed it had something to do with how many posts you had.

I don't know, the stuff in the video didn't look easy to me.

Honestly, I couldn't sit through 15 to 20 minutes of that type of video. Short edits with your favorite tricks are OK, but...

The video quality looks pretty bad, and it's not just because of pootube. The framerate is way slow, so the motion looks terrible. The filming, where it's not fixed on a tripod, isn't that great either.

It's good that you're out there making videos and stuff, but maybe you can save up and get a camera something like what your logo has in the background, and a skateboard for rolling shots? VX1000's are like a grand or less, a few months at a part time job. Canon Optura 10's are a lot less but supposedly pretty good.

The actual video will be a lot better. Those clips are all from my digital camera that I had on my computer. We are making the full one on my friends and he has an actual camcorder whatever. I just made a video because I currently have no back wheel and can't ride so I took what I had since we weren't using it.

Sweet. The guy who owns my local shop said he was going to open a shop next to a park in North haven, so maybe thats what he was talking about.

How is it that I can put up what I think is a pretty damn good video (good enough for Imeem to get ahold of me because they're interested in my work) and get almost no comments, and then somebody puts up a video filmed with a cellphone with a bunch of fairly boring footage and gets way more comments? This seems to happen on every board...

*got three flats so far this week*
