bigquotesNot many people have the luxury of eating two thanksgiving dinners back to back, but when Evan Schwartz heard he might be able to score two full spreads of turkey, he immediately dropped everything, packed up and made the 5 hour trek from Nelson to our couch in Kelowna. With this in mind, we had a solid shot list assembled. Dolly shots into a stack of yams, cablecams across the dinner table and super slow motion gravy pours were all lined up. We furiously ate our way out of budget in anticipation, leaving the rest of our plans to crumble. So, instead of the high brow dinner film which was initially scripted, we ended up having to mash our way down the trail, shooting a regular old mountain biking edit. Luckily for us, Evan was able to scrounge up a bike he found lying in the back of his pickup, so we spent a few days toiling away. Combining our efforts shooting and editing, it was a rewarding experience. We did this project for ourselves, not to fulfill obligations or make money, and we hope you enjoy the result. With a bit of luck, you'll be seeing a lot more of it in the future. - Liam Mullany and David Peacock

 When you're THAT good at doing something, you take the risk of making it look easy. I had to watch that twice to comprehend what he did.

 Wicked, makes me want to go ride..except for the snow here....but is it just me or are other people sick of seeing the truck ride, breakfast and all that preride stuff, i mean everybody does it so who really cares
  • + 4
 I dunno, it worked in this edit. I thought the truck driving was kinda cool with the background music. The breakfast scenes on the other hand... never want to see another one of those.
