“The Balance” from RideBMX

Article_Opener-1.jpg“With videos being such a huge part of BMX, the whole rider turn filmer is a seamless evolution. It’s not uncommon for someone who starts to take filming more seriously to see their riding suffer a bit—it’s just a simple give and take. However, there are some riders who manage to excel both in front and behind the camera. There are even a few professional riders—some with signature parts and all—who are helping film and/or making some of our favorite BMX videos. Here are a handful of riders who are known and recognized for their efforts on both ends of the video camera and how they find a balance between two things they love to do.”

DIG – “Split Personality” Mike Manzoori Interview

DIG caught up with the one-and-only Mike Manzoori to talk about his current project with etnies and switching between roles in BMX and skateboarding. A couple quotes I pulled-

“The landscape of videos has changed. ‘Grounded’ was a DV project. The level of video production has been raised since ‘Grounded’. We’ve been flooded with amazing toys that are now affordable, so you can get higher level production quality without spending a fortune… I feel a lot more pressure on me to do good. It’s not just capturing the tricks, but telling a whole story. It’s a lot more fun.”

“…the last few years I’ve been trying to shake the fisheye. Every video, skate or bike, has a lot of fisheye shots. It has it’s place, but it’s nice to leave that lens until you really need it and see what else you can do.”

“FIT HORROR PICTURE”

Another reason why Tony Malouf is one of my favorite filmers/editors and the entire FIT team is on another level.
