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.

is there a go-to build for 26 or 650 bike? single speed disk brake bike, simple and durable.
i wish i could ride bmx, but that pedaling position is not great for my back and knees.
is there a go-to bike you guys can suggest? thanks
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.
"It was about finding their strengths and maximizing their abilities and not quitting. Lessons for all regardless of the obstacles."
The determination to achieve excellence.
We think this speech goes beyond and can have even broader meaning, in comparison what the speech was originally meant for.
The decision to use this speech in the short film was entirely the videographers choice. We weren't against it though.
In Estonia and Latvia we don't have too many black people, so you can get audience shots with them.
The event in Tallinn though has quite a few black riders and skaters participating.
