I stumbled upon this little web flick last night on a blog called the front. So weird and casual, I wonder if I'm supposed to be enjoying it this deeply.
Despite my enthusiasm, you should probably lower your expectations.
Jesse Dewlow is a familiar name, and Google tells me he had footy in Ruff Draft, but I don't remember any of it. I like his style and tricks, but it's the editing choices in this video that really get me: the quiet, unconventional music, the audible bike riding sounds and white noise, the multiple long takes, the crashes, the spots, the ironic windows moviemaker effects and slow-mo... It's funny but honest, precisely the emotional nuance that I try to live my own life by, but which I've all but given up on in the bmx world.
The mention of a "Toronto edit" in this post, from June, seems like a reference to the above video, which was posted in August.
Made my evening. I'm gonna watch the video again and hope that this post doesn't make me sound like a stalker.
