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”.

Barely Dead, a film by Doug Urquhart, written by Justin Eisinger.
Barely Dead Preview: PLAY
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!
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).
