There is a new website that is just getting underway, if you are firmiliar with the website SkatePerception.com you will understand what this website is. Basically the guys who run that have started up a BMX version for us all to be apart of. I figured I would ask them a few questions about the website and what to expect. Here is what he had to say.
What is bmxperception all about?
BMX Perception is a media discussion forum targeted at the filming, photography and design community within bmx.
How did you come up with the idea?
Well it was kind of in the works for a long time. Other people had shown interest in starting up a site geared in the bmx media direction but no one stepped up. A few months ago Steve LaClair emailed me about his idea for starting it. I was more than thrilled to be a part of it.
You also run some other sites, what are those?
Steve LaClair and Mike Holm are the creators of the Perception Media Network. The Other site are SkatePerception.com and SnowPerception.com. As far as myself and other sites, I’m part of the content team for News-Record.com, which is the news paper for Greenboro, NC. I’m a video producer for online content.
What would the ideal thing you want to come from this site?
Skateperception was obviously a huge hit, and has been around for a while. I’ve been a member of that site for some years now and it does a lot of great things for the skateboard media community. And i think that BMX Perception is something that the bmx community has had the need for a long time. I just want to have an educated media community to hopefully help others out that are just starting. I feel its such a rewarding experience to be able to help out up and comers and give them a chance to show their perception on bmx.
How can people sign up?
Get on the internet and type in BMXPerception.com/forums and click on sign up.
What is the difference between this forum and all of the other forums?
The other perception media forums are geared towards skateboarding and snow. There are quite a few members of skateperception that are bmx’ers, and its funny because most of them kept it undercover most the time. it was surprising to get pm’s from people saying, “hey i ride bmx too”. Most of the skateperception community was pretty open about things. I and a few other risk takers would post up bmx stuff every now and again. Some members would be into, and well, some weren’t. But BMXperception.com gives us a place to focus on bmx media.
What does the future hold for BMXPerception.com?
Well if you look at SkatePerception.com you’ll see it has more of a front end site with videos and news and stuff. We are working on getting all that up and going but we wanted to get the forums going off the bat. BMXPerception.com will be your come to place for bmx media in the future.
