I am very excited to formally announce the production of AANGLES, a DVD that I will be working on for the next two years. I’ll be traveling extensively throughout the country filming with anyone who is motivated by the energy of this promo, an energy that will carry through into the final product. Get in touch if you want to be involved!
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.”

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