26 Oct Gleamin QUit Dreaming – DVD Review

product_imagequitdreamin

In a world of quantity over quality, Gleamin – Quit Dreaming is the exact opposite of all of that. It’s fair to say there hasn’t been a more anticipated BMX flick since Criminal Mischief and of course Deadline. The pressure built up as the months went on and GLMN was there, but nowhere at the same time. That being said, it does not disappoint. A true masterpiece, arguably the best Canadian BMX film ever made.

If you aren’t familiar with Luke Santucci, Luke grew up in Edmonton, AB riding with the likes of Jaumell Campbell, Jared Chilko, Mike Boag, K Will, Chaunch, Ren and more. The son of 5 time grey cup champion Angelo Santucci (find the reference in the dvd) would eventually move out of Edmonton to Vancouver, where he’s been living for the last 6-7 years. Luke is well known for his riding but has been somewhat underrated in his filming/ editing forever. Quit Dreaming shows how incredibly talented Luke is behind a camera and editing software, with seamless links from section to section, great soundtrack and great fish angles with his modded mk2 (nah son).

Doing a DVD review is never easy. There’s no real reason to explain the radness of this DVD but here’s a few reasons you should grab a copy:– It will make you want to go to Vancouver badly (or feel like you are already there for the duration of the video)
– This is a legit crew video, all of these guys are friends and chill/ride together on a regular basis and it shows
– Luke kills it at filming/editing
– Jaumell Campbell, Taylor Elvy, James Steele, Dave Scott, Andy Roode, Matt Desson, Brad Hill, Cory Beal, Ryan Hiebert, le Luke, Mike Boag, Jared Chilko, amongst a ton more have clips/ sections. All these guys are legends.
– Jordan Hango has last section and it’s typical Hango…
– Luke put years of time and effort into this, rather than taking the typical web route, we have a lifelong physical copy of a masterpiece in Canadian BMX history

This could drag on forever but essentially the underlying message is that you’ll be disappointed with yourself years from now if you don’t get a copy of this dvd. This film is 100% Canadian BMX at it’s finest. No Bullshit, just friends riding their city for all the right reasons. Take note kids, this is what it’s all about, QUIT DREAMING

03 Dec Jaumell Campbell : STAY MAD

Jaumell is one of the most humble and chilled out people I know; a true OG. This was filmed in spotty fashion all throughout Edmonton this past summer/fall. Jams knocked all these clips out in his trademark nonchalant style that’s truly one of a kind. Stay Mad! -Jared Chilko
Film/Edit: Jared Chilko
Additional Filming: Mike Orita, Riley Abramyk
Music: Pouya “Get Buck (Prod. Rellim)”

Jared Chilko is a name that most Canadians should be very familiar with. JJ has been a part of/ shredding in the Canadian BMX scene for over a decade now and shows no signs whatsoever of slowing down.
