From the Inside Out, Through Photos

Oct 14, 2011
by   

Creating ‘From the Inside Out’ has been an incredible journey packed full of amazing times, groundbreaking riding, laughs and unforeseen experiences. Producing a film as riders, builders and filmmakers is an overwhelming challenge. Combining all those workloads into one production makes for some heavy ups and downs, but we are lucky to have all positive characters. A story doesn’t get interesting until you throw a few curve balls in there anyways. Thankfully along the way we have had major amounts of help from our friends, locals, random strangers and of course our sponsors. We are still locked in behind the bikes, cameras and computers to complete this film to its fullest potential in time for the world premiere in a couple weeks… so for now here is a look back at our whirlwind season courtesy of Nicolas Teichrob.

The deep, forested mountains of the Sunshine Coast combined with endless forestry roads offer us access to places where we are able to build anything we can imagine. The coast is home and it gives us the freedom to bring together everything we love.

Semenuk is one hell of a talented rider. We all know it because we have all seen him ride, but watching the things he does on a regular basis is mind blowing. His warm up runs consist of podium level riding.

We took a trip up to PG, the hometown of Kyle Norbraten, where he left a lot of old lines behind. The riding there is more about fun flow rather than huge sending... although the objective of the trip was to jump a moving train.

We arrived in Rossland around the same time summer arrived to BC – about two months late. Blue bird conditions meant we had to quickly change Hopkins’ carefully laid plans and build a whole new line to shoot. In the middle of our struggle Curtis had a massive crash, which left him with a dislocated shoulder and seizing, spazzing back pain. It was hard to see our best friend taken out, but everyone including Curt pushed on to stay positive.

Fernie lies in the Rocky Mountains and has no shortage of sick riding, epic views and great people. The mountain’s massive head wall overlooked us while the small town and surrounding mountains sat below. It was pretty easy to take a moment to just look around and appreciate where mountain biking had brought us.

Our houseboat trip with Hunter on the Shuswap in BC’s interior was executed perfectly. The trip came at the end of a mega road trip and we were looking forward to some riding, scouting, swimming and life on the water. The houseboat was our base and mode of transportation to get to the trail locations. Conditions worked in our favour – the trails were dialed, the greenery was in full bloom and the dust blew like gold.

Shooting with Stevie on his home trails was a pleasure. He had every variable (aside from weather) calculated. It was really hard to focus on getting the shot because all we wanted to do was watch Stevie ride. He had all of us in awe. His speed is as unreal as his bike handling skills, and both come so naturally to him.

One thing Kenny Smith has always been waiting for is an opportunity; one that he could put all his skill, ideas, determination and fear-crushing hane into. Given that opportunity Kenny went straight to work in Whistler. He overcame some major moves in his segment and put in a huge effort to make sure he wouldn’t let down anyone who had ever helped him out. We can say he definitely accomplished that.

In Squamish BC the ocean literally meets the mountains. Riding, filming and building up in this spot has been a long time dream of ours. And to get up there and make it all happen with Thomas was a huge experience for us. The rewards did not come easy though. We battled against a late summer and a fast encroaching winter. As the new snow and fall weather rolled in to shut us down it was hard leaving a couple shots on the table, but that’s the way it goes when Mother Nature controls what you do.

Quick note about Aggy... A busy production schedule calls for certain changes to be made to make sure shoots happen. It is not an easy task to juggle film locations, weather conditions, riders' schedules, injuries and countless other variables to make the plans work how they've been written down on paper. Next week we will be meeting up with Aggy to shoot him on some of the interior's rowdiest lines and can’t wait to get him in front of our cameras before this whole production comes to an end.

A huge thanks goes out to every individual who has helped us along the way. We have had the opportunity to work with a ton of amazing people and it’s been a pleasure. We gotta give special thanks to Nicolas Teichrob for capturing all the stills along the way. His contribution to making this film has gone above and beyond his role as a photographer. Every shoot has created new experiences and we’re glad to have him there to capture the moments! Check out more of his work at www.nicolasteichrob.com. Stay tuned to magazines near you for the real banger images from shooting on 'From the Inside Out'.



'From the Inside Out' is coming this fall with the world tour starting October 27th in Whistler. A Special Edition DVD/BluRay combo pack along with an iTunes release will be available December 1st. Keep up to date on the latest news by following us on Facebook and Twitter.

‘From the Inside Out’ is made possible by Mountain Biking BC, Rock Shox, Sombrio, Evoc, Chromag, Pinkbike.com and SCOTT Sports. Additional support for the film is provided by Contour, Trek, Devinci and Specialized. The film is produced by SecondBase, a new joint film company formed by The Coastal Crew and Anthill Films.

 I'm a huge Nicholas Teichrob fan.. but all these photos look like someone's tried to resize them and then oversharpened them compared to the ones on his site... www.nicolasteichrob.com/blog
  • + 1
 good eye. you can actually see halo/glow around the subjects on the silhouette shot.
must be pink bikes algorithm compressing the pictures.
  • + 14
 Doesnt stop most of them being good enough to claim POD.
  • + 2
 theres definetely something weird on the photos...
  • + 0
 no camera data.. .makes me think they were shot on film. but I can't verify
  • + 0
 well the halo/glow is most likely from editing it, thats not even weird, it realy looks completly over-sharpened but i do not believe that, guess something went wrong while compressing (?)...
  • + 2
 I am fairly sure that the photos look a bit odd because they are all stills from video footage that has been through a lot of post.
  • + 2
 They look like screen grabs. Nice one for posting that link!

This is rad! Some amazing shots and lots of them, and enough text to balance it out! Great article man, but makes me miss summer! Frown

 glad im not the only one who thought somethings wrong with the pictures.. they are all look unfocused. thanks for the link!
  • + 2
 hola amigos. thanks for sharing the stoke. in regards to the quality, it does look a bit funny. Everything here is crispy focused in full res, but exported at 70% quality to keep file size down and at 1024px (i.e. LESS than HD, b/c this is a website). I'm guessing this is the reason for it, as I usually keep the sharpening down to a minimum. As duncanp mentioned, the shots on my site don't look like that. ciao!

 downhillproductions, your mad or so?

 all these pics look like some guy got lazy and just enhanced everything to much, shadows, highlights, colours, sharpness and definition all are overdone. nice shots but not so great editing
  • + 1
 Yeah, you can definitely tell. The resize algorithm on pinkbike is pretty good so I wondered why it looked so weird. I could have understood the crap quality if it was on facebook though.
  • + 1
 the quality issues have been sorted...it turns out there were too many times of compressing the jpeg for various reasons. New images are being uploaded (the same images) and you'll see it is not a function of lazy or crap editing, but rather a function of jpeg compression too many times. These will be swapped as soon as possible, however, we still have some shoots to do, so that is taking precedence at the moment. thanks for the keen eyes.
