It’s finally online! #stoked #bmxedit #swbmx #lovinglife #aficionados (at 9 Hillside Avenue)

It’s finally online! #stoked #bmxedit #swbmx #lovinglife #aficionados (at 9 Hillside Avenue)

This project was created by me (Henry Cakebread) and Sam James to bring the BMX community together in one edit, as well as to give the opportunity for the up and coming riders to be featured on SouthWestBMX.  To do this we set up a number of promotional videos and poster in which we asked riders to send in clips of them riding.  In order to give more of an incentive for these riders to send in these clips we hooked up with Scott Summerhayes from Crucial BMX Shop.  Scott was kind enough to give us some products from Crucial BMX shop and 34R that we could give out as a prize after a lucky dip draw at the end of the project.  This was fantastic and I don’t think we would have been as successful without they’re support throughout the whole project.

We had an initial deadline for the entries to be sent into us as the 4th December 2012 but as we wanted more clips and knew of riders who wanted to enter a clip but hadn’t been able to due to the weather, we re-launched and extended the deadline to the 24th December 2012.

After this most of my time was taken up with my dissertation for my University so I wasn’t able to edit the clips together into the final compilation edit until after I’d finished that.  However, as soon as I finished my dissertation I got straight into editing the clips together, and what a fantastic set of clips we got!

I’d like to say an extra thank you to Lee Martin, Laurence Leeke and Ross Penny for helping me by filming and sending in clips of other riders.

I’d also like to say thank you to Scott Summerhayes and all the people at Crucial BMX shop and 34R who helped and supported this project.  Without you guys I feel this project would not have been as successful.

Finally, a big thank you to every single person that sent in a clip to us to compile in this edit.  It’s been a fantastic experience editing your clips into this edit and bringing the BMX community together in one edit.

All of your help and support was much appreciated.

Extended Deadline!

WE’RE EXTENDING THE DEADLINE!  HORRAY! 

Due to so many people wanting to get involved who haven’t been able to get out and film with this poor weather, we have decided to extend the deadline!  This means that if you’ve filmed a clip, but didn’t get a chance to send it into us, you now have a chance to send it in!  We appreciate every clip that comes into us and will use and credit everyone who sends in an entry that we can!  This means there is still time to get out and film a clip for you to win prizes from the lucky dip competition, and what a bunch of prizes they are!  The winner will be announced upon the release of the final video and the prizes sent to them for them to take a picture of and get featured on the website.

So, whether you want all those prizes from SouthWestBMX, Crucial BMX shop and 34R, or you want recognition for that trick you’ve been working on all year, or you just want to be a part of the project and get featured in the video then get out to your local skatepark when its dry, or your local indoor park to film that clip.  This project is open to absolutely anyone who rides.  Whether you started only a couple months ago, or have been riding for years, get your clip into us.

Thanks so much for the entries we’ve received and we look forward to seeing all those clips that your going to be sending in.

Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions by contacting us through Facebook, Twitter, the website or by email us personally.

If, like a few people you do not have a camera to film your clip, get in contact with us and we’ll try and work something out where someone can film your clip.
