rn(photo c/o Antonio Alvendia’s blog)We had an excellent week out at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas! Joey Redmond and I were out to promote the Slide America project. I was also teamed up with Batlground to talk with companies about some amazing marketing opportunities we have in the works for the 2007 season. We met a lot of new people, and ran into a lot of old friends. All in all, a very successful week!
Preliminary shooting of Slide America is officially complete. The past 30 days traveling the nation was BEYOND INSANE. Over 16,000 miles exposing the very core of North American drifting. I feel so lucky to have experienced American drifting the way we did. Everyone was so receptive to what we were trying to accomplish. It was simply amazing. Now that we’re back, I have over 120 hours of footage to log and capture… then the editing process begins. Wish me luck.rn
Atco Raceway was subject to another crazy Batlground drift demo at the 6th round of the Nopi/NDRA Xbox Cup Racing Series! The police wouldn’t let the crowd anywhere near the drifting, and also stepped in to restrict our show with HEAVY limitation. We weren’t allowed to really do burnouts, get near walls, and were prohibited from doing rodeos. In fact… we were barely allowed to tandem. It was weird, considering it was private property, and everything was heavily insured. I felt like we weren’t able to put on the kind of show that I know we can. Despite the interference, I suppose it was still a good demo… I just know it could have been better.rnrn
Joey Redmond and I set forth today on our 19 city/30 day tour of America for preliminary shooting of Slide America. The project’s focus is to document drifting in America on a grassroots level. This project will expose the very core of American drifting. For more information check out the website:rnwww.slideamerica.comor on MySpace: rnmyspace.com/slideamerica rn
