Cover time

March 17th, 2011

Doug and Crihs had a man date to get an image for the back the DVD cover. If you don’t count JT,¬†they had more trouble with the cops in one day than we did shooting all the video.

Empire awakes

March 15th, 2011

After a long, snowy winter and a year of screenings with the Bicycle Film Festival, we’re almost done. All that’s left is to finalize some DVD menus and cover design and you’ll be able to buy this dang thing.

Look for more frequent updates on the blog. Here’s a video of Empire riders JT and Yatika skitching across the Williamsburg Bridge to tide you over.

Hello San Francisco, Athens

November 8th, 2010

It’s hard to overstate how happy we are to be screening Empire in San Francisco. The bar set by Mash and Macaframa is high. If you’re in the Bay, come see how we did.

Also, Chris and I will be in San Francisco. Say hi.

Red Hook Crit – Milan

October 18th, 2010

Red Hook Criterium MILANO

Great ride by JT. He got on the podium, right behind friend and new-pro Neil Bezdek. Rumor is that Neil’s winning strategy from the second Red Hook Crit, go faster than everyone from the gun using a 48×13, didn’t pan out.

Thanks to Prolly for all the coverage.

West Coast Premiere

Winner

July 16th, 2010

Chris raced Rumble in the Bronx. He won, Empire rider got first. Red Bull rider Austin Horse got second despite a move you will have to see for yourself in the video.

Big thanks to Empire sponsor Go Pro for the cameras. They are sick.

World Premiere Recap

June 25th, 2010

We did it. We screened the first cut of Empire at the 10th anniversary of the Bicycle Film Festival to two sold-out audiences. I’m pretty sure everyone loved it, and we got lots of great feedback.

Many photographers were on hand all week, but so far Tod Seelie has the best photos of our screening.

The audience was rapt.

Then we did a thankfully brief Q&A session with the riders.

A huge thanks to Brendt Barbur for helping make this happen, and to everyone else who made this possible. The riders, the collaborators, the groupie, the lovers, and even the haters.

We’re in the process of finalizing the cut and getting everything in order for the DVD. Expect more frequent updates as we get there. But don’t get mad if we don’t actually follow through.

Empire premiere

June 4th, 2010

It’s official.

Come on down to New York Fucking City for the Tenth Anniversary Bicycle Film Festival. Stay all the way until Sunday and see the premiere.
