Mickey is a good friend of mine, hes been riding since before I was. One of my first memories of him was at an old local park (I was 12ish at the time) a older skater freaked out on me and was about to beat my ass, and he just randomly showed up, didn’t say anything, and the dude backed down. It was pretty intense. However, Mickey is pretty hardcore, he broke his neck, and walked out of the old local trails, and drove himself to the hospital a few years back… Well about 2 years ago he made a video, and just now has he put it on youtube.. he rides even better than this now and is still one of the coolest most motivating guys I ride with. Enjoy.
So I posted up the trailer for the Resolve Road Trip DVD. I said I would get more information on it for you guys so here it is.
Name of DVD:
Whose making this DVD:
Me [ant barrett]
Is there any other people helping with the filming and editing?
nope. i’m a one man show, that way i can be a total control freak, i’m a perfectionist, so if shots or edits aren’t up to scratch, well….i’m my own worst critic!
What kind of camera gear and editing programs are you working with?
currently working with adobe premier pro cs3, after effects cs3, photoshop cs3 – are you noticing a theme here?.. – and panasonic cameras.
Who all will be in this dvd?
eric holley (eastern bmx) kelly bolton (eastern bmx) mark theaker (eastern bmx uk) toby gresswell (eastern bmx uk) and shaun eglington (gt hotwheels uk vert), they were the main guys on the trip but obviously loads of talented locals are on as well.
Where are you going for this road trip?
already been on the trip – uk (corby, peterborough, bar hill, bristol, the track and mt.hawke skatepark in cornwall)
When did filming start?
How much longer are you filming for?
one more competition in cornwall (uk) and then i should be done.
What is going to make this video stand out from the rest?
obviously roadtrip dvds have been done, but my style of editing and production comes through, so not only do you have sick riding, you have a video that looks really nice too – production value i guess haha…wait and see! haha.
Where will people be able to get this once it is released?
working on setting up a site at the moment to sell the dvd from and also promote other projects i may be working on in the future…. more about that when its sorted!
What do you expect it to cost?
ten pounds if you’re in england, dunno what that is in $? $18? you tell me?
I believe it is almost $20
Is there any clips you can let us in on so far?
just the teaser trailer on the myspace and on youtube – the rest is secret!
Is there a website or anywhere to find more information?
just the myspace at the moment i’m afraid – www.myspace.com/resolvevideo
Anything else you can tell us I didn’t think to ask?
nothing other than a big thank you for your interest in the project, and spread the word. resolve will be landing later this year.
thanks guys! ant [editing, videography]
Since Alex is on a road trip and his cell phone is his only way to update I will try and keep the updates coming for him
We just got on the road with our trip and needless to say its already lookin to be an amazing time. We all met up at Robertos in Oceanside today and we’re currently rolling 3 cars deep.
The line up for the trip you ask? Its an ALL-Star team much like the Harlem Globetrotters… Its Bear,
Nick and I in one car… Kyle, Hoang, Dirt Ron, Ferbert and Sean Burns in the other car and we have The Beast with us. The beast is currently carrying Subrosa master Ryan and SD hometown hero, Gary Young.
We’re currently driving in some lite traffic through Irvine right now. 5 freeway is lookin to be a bitch today. You can find this D trip with special guests rolling through all your gas stations, fast food eaterys and truck stops all day today.
Once we arrive in S.F. you’ll be sure to find us riding the parks and street all up in that area. We’re meeting up with my Edge brother Josh Hayes for photos and we’ll be filming the trip for a Defgrip edit or somethinnnnn…
We’re gonna need all sorts of places to stay and shred at…
And you best believe I’ll be updating and posting from my Sidekicker the entire trip. So more bulletins and other non-sense to follow….
If you live in S.F. or close to, Hollllla!
-Alex @ Give D!
Resolve Road Trip DVD dropping this summer I guess.
Came across this today…
Eric Holley is going to be in this… so you know its good.
I will try and find out more information about this for you guys.
I saw this video up on InterBMX.com Brandon Morcomb posted it up, I don’t know if he made it but it wouldn’t surprise me.. Theres riding from Dustin Griess, Landon Anderson, Brandon Morcomb, Phil Book (I think thats him doing a big no hander), and a bunch of other guys I can’t think of writing this.
Enjoy it’s good.
yes that is criss cross- jump
Standard is awesome, they have a Youtube page, they just uploaded the Jonah Lidberg part from Stronger Than All, I don’t know why. Jonah is a Minnesota rider and he is straight up awesome as hell. If you ever get the chance to ride with him you will be more than stoked… Also I should have an interview with Rick in a few days too so get excited for Standard wildness.
(His Stronger Than All Part)
Then I figure since Drop The Hammer has been around forever I would post this also..
(Jonahs part in Drop The Hammer from a few years ago still awesome)
