Ground Control GC.1, episode 3 opens with a never before seen section, initially created to bridge the gap between Nils Jansons and Alex Burston‘s profiles, but dropped at the last minute due to pacing issues.
We then move on to a full profile for Alex Burston, a British blader, born and bread in Manchester but due to his unquestionable ability, he is now making impressive leaps into an international scene of professional bladers.
Released in 2011, Ground Control came to define a years worth of achievement from the blading community. Featuring a strong roster of talent from the team itself and directed by Simon Mulvaney, this film documents the story of the frames beneath the feet of each of the GC team.

Here is a little taster on what to expect from Alex Burston‘s section in the new Razors film.
Burston has been injured recently due to excessive rollerblading, but he still managed to gather some clips together for the enjoyment of you guys. Hope everyone enjoys it.

Film Director Simon Mulvaney recently spent a day with new Razors rider Alex Burston following his return from filming in the U.S. for the new Ground Control team video, being released later this year.
Filmed in only 5 hours and edited in the same amount of time, this Podcast demonstrates Alex’s efficiency when it comes to riding both street and park. Through the video we get a brief, yet insightful look into his skate setup, reasons for joining the Razors team and his feelings on their latest product; the Aragon 4. More.

quoting Brett Davies:
Me and Alex Burston set out to film for this edit for a while ago although the majority was filmed in only four or five sessions. Alex is the kind of skater you want to film with, he can get five or six sick clips at different spots easily in under 2 hours.
He is also a perfectionist and will not stand for sloppily landed tricks just to get the clip quicker, basically he’s perfect to film with.
Thanks to Sam Brookfield for filming a couple of second angles and also Scott Hallows for providing me with some of Lawrence Badgers clips so that we had enough to get this finished up.
Also don’t forget to be at the MCR street comp Alex has throwing alongside side Nick Lomax on the 2nd of July it’s sure to be a big day for Manchester skating.
