Upcoming filmmaker Chris Wilmshurst, just send over his highlights for 2009.
1 – Rider
A person or rider you think has stood out, [someone who you had good times with and needs a shout out]
—Dean Cueson, This kid is unbelievably good on a bike, I’ve spent the past 8 months riding with him and getting to know him. He is one of the nicest people I have met and just loves every day on his bike so quick to learn tricks and has his own style. He is the most genuine person I have met and I wish him the best in all he does.
2 – Photo
Your favourite photo, [a photo you might have taken or been in]
—I’d have to say my favorite photo I have seen this year has to be this photo Clem took. I am a big fan of Clems work and enjoy seeing anything he has produced.
3 – Web Edit / DVD
Your favourite video/DVD, [web edit or a video you have worked on]
—Lets get Mystical – I loved everything about this video, the filming the riding and the way it was put together. Joe Simon really pushes the boundaries with his BMX films and this was amazing to watch, especially on Blu-Ray.
4 – Event / Time and place
Highlight event such as a competition/jam, or even an random event that occurred while you while you were out on your bike with friends?
—The Stephen Murray Jam was a highlight for me. It was amazing to see all the riders come along to support Stephen and raise lots of money. It is also great to watch some of the top dirt riders ride in front of you.
5 – Ride UK BMX
Your highlight from Ride UK, could be an article you’ve been in or just read, a front cover or even one of the videos featured on our site?
—I’d Have to go with the Sebastian Keep cover with the accompanying DVD, the fact that it tied the magazine to the web edit made it even more worth reading.
