This video is collaboration between myself, and Will Roegge. Will shot all of the footage last November at a secret invite-only event in Nashville. His amazing edit STILL ranks as the most viewed drifting video on Vimeo. I wanted to try and focus on a different aspect of drifting with this video. I wanted to peer into what really makes events like this so special: the people.The DriftMechaniks crew has an amazingly strong bond. It may sound cliché – but we are a family. Truth be told… it doesn’t really matter what we’re doing – we have the best of times when we are all together. That is what I wanted to explore with this video: the family and friendship we share at these events. If you take that camaraderie away… then well… it’s just… drifting.BIG thanks to Mr. Roegge for flexing his creative genius behind the lens, and allowing me the privilege to work with the footage!Hopefully you enjoy this look at what I feel is a more intimate side of this crazy sportIf not… please return to taking drifting way too serious and continue not having any fun. EVER.
Some still frames I’ve been wrenching on from a collab project with Will Roegge. Will shot a TON of footage at a super-secret private event last year. It has taken me forever to get around to this footage… but I am super-stoked to be working on it. I’m trying to explore some new avenues with this video, and I’m pretty exited about the progress!rnrn
Rod asked me if I would like to write a ‘Guest Blog’ on Speedhunters, which is now live on the site! Carlos “Panda” Richard and Cody “Coco” Wellons helped me immensely with the photography for the feature. We shot the car inside the walls of Oakland Cemetary, which is as visually stunning as it is historically significant.Big thanks to Carlos and Cody for the snaps, and to Rod for the opportunity!Click to read the feature on Speedhunters.com
