Probably the best thing about working within BMX media, is getting to meet like minded and talented people everyday and call it work. Here’s two such people, who I’ve been lucky enough to get to know over the past few months and witness the raw talent that goes into their work. Pat Banks – Frame Builder and Richard Prendergast – Filmer.
“The Metal Man is short film that gives an insight to the life of custom frame builder, Pat Banks. Pat’s been a friend of ours for some years and we always thought it would be interesting to shoot in his workshop, doing what he does best, building bikes. It started out as just an opportunity to film some arty shots of Pat welding and capturing the textures of the workshop. But after seeing the precision that Pat takes in each bike, we decided to make something a little more insightful.” Richard Predergast
