Back in the glory days of blading, VideoGroove, our one true video magazine did a battle format video where crews from different cities put forth edits to be judged by those who bought the video and mailed in their ballots.
This was the second edition, and I am stoked on the edit we made. We used a classic remix of a legendary tune, “Champion Sound” by the Bad Company. The VG crew is trying to re-launch the BMC series this summer, be sure to support the cause! Blade or die! – Beau Cottington.
Salomon Team video I did in 2003 I think (?) It was used in a media kit separated into sections and never released in entirety. I produced the whole soundtrack myself which was a first for me.
Features Brandon Campbell, Rob Thompson, Billy Prislin, Brian Hamm, Chance Dustan, Jimmy Shuda, and others. This video is not the finished version, my master tapes are lost and this is from a tape Billy Prislin had stored away.
In this version Vinny Minton had not turned in his footage yet, but he has a section in the finished video. Also I had only done color correction on a few select clips, so this is like a 3/4 draft version.
Hopefully I will find the original master tape with the complete video soon. Big thanks to Billy Prislin for digging up the tape out of his archive for me. Thumbnail shot is B.Cam with an impossible 360 over a tall fence in Santa Barbara, CA.
