The movie was never about competing with the big guns. It was about making a full length movie with my good friends and seeing how good we could make it.

For one, it was made by me alone. Any other major film has at least a few guys. What's Next? was made in 6 months. Collective flicks were 2 years each in the making. Major films like the collective/NWD have a minimum of $250,000 budget. I had a budget of $2500. $2000 of which went towards paying my rent while I made it. Also, the movie was made with nothing but good friends of mine. No huge name pros. I sacrificed quite a bit to make this movie and to make sure I could give it away free and am totally broke because of it. So please don't compare it to NWD, collective, etc. I don't expect everyone to like it, but at the very least, be respectful. Thanks.

To all the 15 year old haters on here calm down.
bigquotesIt was like everyone's first video filmed on their dad's Hi-8 tape camera except 4x longer
Show me, If you show me you can film, edit and produce a 3 min short half as well as Whats next then I will personally fund you making a full length movie.

Aaron, I was pretty damn stoked with the movie, plus the party for it kicked ass! Way to stick to your guns and show why locals still kick ass.

In my opinion the movie was amazing, especially for the small budget and time period Aaron had to make the film. The Film did a great job showing a group of the next top names in biking and what they have to offer.
Great job I would have been more then happy if I had bought this movie

I really enjoyed it Aaron. I'm starting to get into to MTB videography and hope to make my own MTB film next year.
I thought it was really well done considering you were on such a tight budget. I was expecting it to be over-edited (I have to admit like some of your other pieces) but it wasn't. You kept it nice a simple.

The riding was awesome, there wasn't a single seggy I didn't like, I liked how they all had their own seperate locations and 'stunts' if you like.

One thing I wasn't a fan of is that you kinda split each segment up into three parts, Dirt Jump, Freeride and Downhill. I don't know why but I just didn't think it worked IMO. But it seems other people liked it.

I also thought the music was kinda repetitve. Although I loved all the songs you used I thought that your continued use of 'electro' music got a little boring. Although you mixed it up with some Jay-Z for Vass' part and the La Roux DnB rmx.

All in all, great film. Wasn't expecting it to be free, so stoked on that. Props to anyone that can make a full length film like that on little or no budget tup

Ignore the hater's Aaron. I applaud the effort, blood, sweat, and tears put into What's Next, and am PUMPED on the final product. I don't think 1% of the people here understand what kind of sacrifice ($ and time) goes into producing a video from start to finish. Keep em coming, I know i'll be looking for what is to come next from you.


p.s. stoked you used that Matt and Kim song! That's been on my ipod for a while, it will forever remind me of What's Next Smile

Dude. I loved it. As a huge fan of the Collective films, NWD, and Kranked series, I thought the video was prime.

I dont want narration, or big name shit. I love underground, simple, good riding.

I thought the shots were excellent, ESPECIALLY considering the budget. A home made, single dude video, I thought this was fantastic. Realistically man, I've watched it like 4 or 5 times total now. I just watched it again all the way through.

I love the shots, the ride spots, the music. You haters can tell me i have bad taste, but sure do appreciate the entreprenurship and hard work it takes to accomplish such a production.

Keep up the good work man, and dont let the other guys get to ya. I hope you have it in ya to make another one soon dude!!! I favorited teh video the first day i saw it, and sent it to my friends.

I definately would not have been upset at all if I had paid for it. And if you sell copies at a reasonable price, I will buy one.
