One of the most ambitious BMX Video projects to date, see more here-
For one week during the 2010 soccer world cup we invited 5 international teams of riders and filmers to Barcelona, Spain to step up and see which country crew could rise to the challenge of filming and editing a 3 – 6 minute film on the hallowed streets of Cataluña’s most beautiful city.
Each team was created by the lead director and was made up of 4 riders (of which at least one was a Nike 6.0 rider) and 2 filmers. They were given a place to stay, a metro ticket and a street map – the rest was up to them.
The results were beyond our wildest dreams; what was put down in a week exceeds what many others have created in a month or even a year. With truly amazing riding and exceptional filming, these 5 films are testament to the effort, talent and sheer determination of some the worlds finest BMX street riders and the undisputed creativity of 10 of the best BMX film makers and cameramen in the game.
Everyone had a tale to tell; from Jason Phelan’s wild slam, the German teams arrest and €3000 fine, to the French team looking for a real French frog in Barcelona. It was a week that they’ll never forget.
The premier was held on the last day of the event and literally every minute was used to make the final touches to their edits.
