Interview: Doug Urquhart of Misled Media

Thu, Sep 7, 2006

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. Rowe, Damian Wilson, Nick Wood, Arlo Eisenberg, Jess Dyrenforth, Tom Hyser, Brian Shima, Eric Shrihjn, Doug (a 67 year old ‘first-gen’ rec blader from Minnesota), Dave Carnie (oops disregard, he rejected the interview!), & many more! Simply stated, amazing skating.

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.

Quoting Doug Urquhart:

I have been shooting for Black Market II : Barely Dead for a little over a month so far. This new flick is a documentary about the history of skating. Featuring interviews with Arlo Eisenberg, Mike Opalek, Jess Dyrenforth, Jon Elliott, Brian Shima, Chris Haffey, Shane Coburn + more!

Black Market II : Barely Dead, HD Photos

All the skating content is shot on super 16mm motion picture film. Below are a few still frames from my recent California trip. These are freeze frames from the film transfer to HDCAM 1920×1080 10-bit uncompressed files… I have cut the file size to 50% of those dimensions so that they will be visable on your monitors.

Just remember… still frames don’t do much justice for how smooth & organic the film looks in motion! Also, all these shots were filmed at 48fps… so they are all true slow-motion… - Doug Urquhart.

Get ready for a full-blown trailer being released during Super Hick 2006 (first weekend of May).
