14 Apr Eyecontact: Ian Fleming Interview & NYC Trip Section

Not all heroes wear capes, but Ian Fleming should. Ian is amongst an elite and very short list of Canadian BMX filmers/editors who are constantly out stacking, travelling, and just fucking living. Ian’s filming is always on point and his editing style is absolutely incredible. Every full-length he puts out represents the crew he’s out with; it has a very organic and fun feel to it, the way it should be and for all the right reasons. We caught up with the maritimer and asked him some questions on his most recent masterpiece, ‘Eyecontact.’ Ian was also kind enough to hook us up with an exclusive NYC trip section from the filming of Eyecontact. We are extremely hyped to present that to you below.

16 Feb No Drents in Londo

The dude Ian Fleming just sent through this great little nugget from a trip to London with Andrew Phillips, Alexis Leger, Matt Comeau, Paul Slaunwhite, Colin Kenny, Harrison Forward and Damien Maclean. Although it looks like they had a great time and rode a bunch of amazing spots, they probably didn’t enjoy it one bit because there were no hydrants around :/ smh.

30 Dec Business: Famvision 1

We’ve been working on a full length DVD for a while now. Every so often, some of the homies will decide to bless us by documenting certain days out filming. Here’s a bunch of behind the scenes clips from a handful of days/nights, some in Nova Scotia and some in Montreal. Filmed and edited on iPhones.

  • I will never, ever get bored of running over these floppy pole jams that litter the streets in Quebec.
  • Alexis hitting the roof in the O.
  • Paul is insane. Chills 99% of the time then will throw himself at gaps that don't make sense without a run in. This is him trying to 360 over a gap/fence hop. He told everyone he was just going to straight jump it...
  • Alley chills
  • Cruising around with our godsend of a tour guide Justin. He took us to countless incredible spots, most of which we were probably too hungover to ride but they were dope anyway.

  • Patio beers at Arnauds

Every Summer we go on a road trip to Montreal to film a bit for the DVD and drink a lot. We’ve been trying to get into the habit of taking a handful of disposables with us to capture key moments to remember the great times we had during the trip. I think the guys nailed it this time.

This trip was particularly awesome. We drove up there with two cars full of people, and met up with more Halifax dudes who are working out west when we got there. All together I think there was 9 of us from back home. The crew consisted of young guns as young as 18 and OG’s as old as 27, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gang. On top of the crew we brought, we met up with a bunch of homies and stacked like crazy for the DVD.

Photos taken by everyone. HUGE thanks to Arnaud Paquin for letting us stay at his place in Terrebonne for a few nights, for taking us to a dope beach in the middle of the woods, and being an all around dope guy. Massive thanks to Justin Hughes for bringing our stubborn asses all around the city to incredible spots, and for being the party master he is, and thanks to everyone that added to the trip in any way to make it as sick as it was.

Really stoked on how the film looks and how it turned out, all the film burns and slow-motion effects were done in-camera too, those things are rad. Riders are Adam Berry and Martin Tonner.

26 Aug Business BMX Toronto trip disposables

047_47

We headed to Toronto this year for our Business trip, and figured rolling around with some disposable cameras in our pockets would be a great way to capture the essence of what BMX trips are to us. So each of us stocked up on disposables so we could snap pictures throughout the day (and night) as quick as possible when something worth shooting came up. The results were awesome and pretty funny. This is just a small amount of the shots we snapped but are some of the best.

Even though these pictures are from different days over the course of the trip, I wanted them to be laid out in such a way that it shows a pretty average day on our bikes while on a trip. Here’s what we came up with, Enjoy!

20 Mar Business II Pre-Teaser

Here’s the right way to start your Thursday. The dudes from Business having been working on Business II for the past while, and it’s hard to believe this is a pre teaser because there’s a ton of crazy shit throughout! Can’t wait to see the DVD!

“Over the passed few months on Instagram, we’ve been uploading a clip for each rider who’s shaping up a full section for our next DVD (out in 2015).

This isn’t exactly a trailer, more of a compilation of these Instagram clips; left over clips from the crazy amount of footage we’ve been stacking towards the film (plus some extra shots and crashes). We wanted to put out a web video to let you guys know we’ve been working on something awesome since 2012. Filmed by Ian Fleming and Byron Kutchera
