‘You Like This’ is a film which set out to explore the back country and encouraged the riders to push further and discover new beautiful lines. With so much of mountain biking today happening in bike parks, trail centers and sanitized skills parks, Art Barn Productions works to bring back pristine single track, long downhill epics, big jumps and committing lines.
"You like this" is gonna be an awesome mtb movie! I'm gonna be there! Less Dirt Jump and more big bikes with NO slowmotion…
-Freeride Legend Brett Tippie
‘You Like This’ tells the story of a group of riders at the core of mountain biking. Art Barn was committed to working with a very dedicated crew, who represent many different aspects of our sport, from trail builders, to world cup racers to free riders and even a dirt jumper. However different their styles; the riders all share the unique goal of pushing further into the back country, riding unique natural terrain or exploring infamous trails. Featuring Kevin Landry, where the search for fresh lines in spectacular places has provided some breath taking footage. Miranda Miller, primarily known for her downhill racing prowess on the world cup circuit pushed her comfort zone while shooting for ‘You Like This’ and had this to say about the experience.
“…I often find that the majority of my time is spent racing or training and 'You Like This' gave me the opportunity to explore different terrain, have fun and still represent my sponsors. I got to ride some areas and lines that I would have usually never gotten to if not for the hard work of Kevin and Taylor. You're gonna like this.

The film also features B.C. Cup downhill champion Dan Skogland as well as local up-and-coming Chromag rider Connor MacDougall. Infamous trail builder Ewan Fafard showcases a line he was been building for almost 3 years, as well as rides several other pieces of trail he built specifically for the film. Fafard is joined by long time riding buddy Taylor Bloy, who’s contrasting styles have created a ‘dueling banjos’ style segment. Andrew Teit and Jeremy Norris round out the original cast, and have spent the better part of 2010 (and some of 2011) looking for breathtaking areas, building new lines and battling the weather to shoot them. Ross MacMaster, a late addition, was so excited after seeing the first cut of the film he immediately began scouting locations as well as bribing the crew with his wife’s cooking to secure a part.
Art Barn Productions is a Squamish based action sports media house which has been creating and releasing mountain bike edits over the past several years. Art Barn consists of Taylor Loughran, director, cinematographer and producer as well as Kevin Landry rider, producer and director. For ‘You Like This’ Art Barn has been working closely with editor Jon Hunwick and Justin Hannweyk of Precip Productions to help give the film its edge, color and pace. Art Barn was committed to capturing the action in its purest form and to do so utilized several cutting edge camera platforms such as the Cine-flex, The RED, and The Cannon 7D.
The film was shot throughout British Columbia, with some of the film’s most visually stunning sequences captured in Squamish. From high alpine single track along Brohm Ridge to free ride lines built in the remains of a recent forest fire overlooking Howe Sound and everything in between. The film features the lush coastal rain forests of Mission and North Vancouver contrasted with the harsh desert locations found in Cache Creek and Spence’s Bridge. The final location was the picturesque Pemberton Meadows, to shoot the infamous Tanquil Lake trail.
