Here’s a rad video we had sent through by Alex Merriman featuring Caique Gomes out cruising around Los Angeles. We’re not sure why it took a few years for this footage to surface online, but it’s a real solid video we some great riding and super clean film work. Take a look!
“On a random Sunday afternoon a few years ago, I met pro BMX rider Caique Gomes in Long Beach, CA. With a skateboard under my feet and a RED Epic Dragon camera in my hands, we teamed up to shoot this video that day with zero plans of what it would become.
Venturing through the L.A. river in Compton to Downtown Los Angeles, we made our way across the city shooting as many tricks as possible.
In an effort to shoot quickly while on location, everything was captured handheld on a RED Epic Dragon. No Steadicam, Movi’s or tripods. The only other weapon of choice were a few varied focal length Schneider Cine-Xenar III lenses.
