About a year ago when we were shooting No Name Losers, we had talked about going to winch this gap here in Wilmington, about a mile from UNCW. We talked about it and talked about it and never actually went out there, for one reason or another. Then, about three days before we were set to premiere the video, Nick rounded up a crew and went out there to get some last minute clips. He got a few good ones, sent them to me in Charlotte, and the rest is history. Aside from those clips for the movie, a lot of good photos came out of that day (courtesy of Jason Husdon, of course), and we decided that we needed to go back and spend some more time there.
Fast forward to this Spring: the good people at Ridiculous Winches send Nick his brand new Ben Horan Pro Model winch and we naturally decide to spend a few days shooting at Randall. Much like anything we’ve ever done as a collective group, it took way longer than expected and those three or so days happened over the course of three or so months, but the point of the story is that we finally have something to show for it.
So anyway, this is a collection of the footage we got at Randall over those few sessions. If you look real close in a few shots, you can catch a glimpse of the brand spanking new Slingshot boots for 2011 which are kind of like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster: often discussed, but rarely seen. Trust us, they’re totally R.A.D.
And I’d also like to point out that we’ve gotten two videos up in just about a week. I don’t want to speak too soon, but I’m pretty sure we’re hitting our stride for the summer.
