I tend to listen to a lot of speeches and watch a lot of documentaries and so I wanted to create a mixture of raw elements with an infamous speech "What Is Your Life's Blueprint?" of Martin Luther King, Jr.

I wanted to try something different with incorporating foley work / RAW sounds or creating a complete sound design for a short. As I was filming Simple Summer Session 17, I thought to myself why not give it a go here. During the event, it was impossible to record any original sounds, because of the loud speakers and commentators on the microphones. However, a work around that was to record sound separately after the event. A friend of mine who rides BMX (Anar-Erik Kütsar) helped out by riding at the local skatepark while I was recording the sounds made.

With a proper stereo system or with good headphones you should be able to experience this short in full because the details are in the sounds.

 The problem with sports in general, there's like a several billion person cluster fuck trying to be good at any of them. I started hockey when I was 3, and still ended up getting discarded eventually. These guys will all be discarded as soon as someone better comes along.

 Seat grab dubby made my left knee hurt some.

The open shot is proof that 10 ft airs out of a quarter (in addition to being the greatest feeling ever) are pure. Like, BMX.
