Mindgame Accidental Machines: I won’t say anything new by telling you that I have been waiting for this flick for a long time. Together with 90% rollers around the world I was searching for any clips/ trailers/ infos about the premiere of this video. Finally, the DVD reached my player. Some time ago, I got the email with this message: " the new Mindgame Video is here, we got it!". At last! Three days later my friend brought the dvd and said straight ahead: “Dude, it is a blast!” I couldn`t wait any longer and pop in the disc”.

In 1995, just four years after rollerblading became the fastest growing participation sport in human history, the first X-Games made its way into households across America. While millions of people were already familiar with the idea of inline skating as a recreational activity, the X-Games was the first time most viewers ever saw a side of the sport known then as aggressive inline skating.
For any young sport, getting so much exposure was a triumph – seen at the time as testimony to the sports’ longevity; a sign of widespread public acceptance. But what no one seemed to expect was public backlash from the recently united action sports community that nearly erased the sports’ mainstream marketability.
More than ten years later, a young sport that many wrote off as unoriginal has discovered the truth behind its origins and progressed to levels of unfathomable athleticism. Traits once viewed as weaknesses have evolved into strengths, and while the world slept, rollerblading — and those who live to do it — built a formidable international network of the dedicated and industrious nature.
Barely Dead is a film about an underground culture that has grown beyond ethnic, economic and social boundaries- a culture brought together by a shared love for rollerblading. And why that culture is going to be the next great anti-establishment movement for the 21st century.

RW : Barely Dead is one of the most anticipated videos that I have heard about in my 8 or so years of Rollerblading. Does the fact that so many kids are expecting so much out of this video put any pressure on you to produce a great product?
DOUG : It explains why the film has not yet been released, seriously! Here is some of the latest: Justin Eisinger and I have been taking our time perfecting the ultimate script. I’m working on upconverting all the archived material (ex. Hoax I & 2, Mad Beef master Beta’s) to DVCPRO HD via a TeraNex. I have to fit into open time slots at a local studio (Crawford.com) after hours to use the Tera so I have to be patience at times. My Sony HDV camera is in So Cal right now as Carl Sturgess, Justin E, & Wes Driver help re-shoot interviews with Brian Shima and Jon Elliott. Matt Andrews is brewing up motion graphics Perfection is key. We are not rushing anything on this project but it is coming very soon. I promise!
RW : We saw amazing skating in Black Marketincluding profiles on Julian Bah, Will Gordon, Montre Livingston, Brian Aragon, and Brent Hicks, who can we expect to see profiles of in Barely Dead?
DOUG : Barely Dead (the documentary portion) will not have any profile formats. However, throughout the film you will be acquainted with: Chris Haffey, Alex Broskow, Cameron Card, Jon Julio, Azikewee Anderson, Shane Coburn, Chris Farmer, Jeff Stockwell, Mike Opalek, Jon Elliott, Julian Bah, Walt Austin, Robert Guererro, Michael Braud, Sean Keane, Pat Lennon, Dave Kollasch, Franky Morales, J.C.

Eleven Years after the first X-Games, Rollerblading has found itself, fighting a war for survival, that has inadvertantly created the very history rolling was discredited for lacking by others. Barely Dead is the story of a global community of outcasts and athletes pulling together to explain and express their one unifying & interest : ROLLERBLADING.
