After years of standing my ground and NOT joining the Twitter craze. I’ve finally caved. Over the past few years I’ve grown a distaste for social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I just don’t seem to care about being accessible online as much anymore… aside from my own li’l corner of the internet right here. As time marches on, social networking sites seem more of an annoyance to me than anything – not to mention there always seems to be a ‘new’ and ‘better’ networking site coming down the pipe. In the past six months… countless designers, developers, and creatives have all been telling me about gigs they’ve landed via Twitter. Until now, it hasn’t really hit home for me. With the economy sucking so hard in Atlanta, and my need to pick up more freelance work – it looks like Twitter it is. I figure if it gets my work in front of one more prospective client, than it is worth it. I don’t plan on going crazy with updates about the most minute details of my life. I want to keep things pretty profesh in that aspect.If you’re interested in seeing screenshots of stuff I’m working on… by all means – follow me on Twitter
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
