It has been a while since I posted up one of Will’s videos… which is crazy considering he is one of the busiest people I know. Will is continually stepping things up with each project, and never fails to impress. He has been teaming up with DC Chavez and Skylar Smith, both SUPER-talented in their own right… making a veritable powerhouse of automotive film-making that is difficult to top. Throw Vaughn Gittin, Jr. in the mix behind the wheel of the RTR-X, and it is no wonder why I love this edit.
Growing up skating, there were always certain videos we would watch before a sesh. Videos that would get us all hyped up, amped, and ready to hurl our carcasses onto a handrail down a flight of stairs without a second thought. This video is right on par with that… but for drifting. It incites that same urge to do something ridiculously dangerous with little regard for consequence, and I CANNOT get enough of it!* I did not edit this piece, only helped with some mograph muscle. Huge thanks to Andy Laputka (director/editor), Brian Casse, Mark Lenardon, and Chris Szczypala, Chris Boon, Hertrech Eugene, and Mike Vogt for their efforts shooting.
It’s about time, right? I nearly killed myself making this documentary… so it sure feels great to see this up there. I also found out recently that the retail release that nobody ever saw is up on Netflix as well. It would be interesting to know who got paid for that. Regardless, it is awesome that such a large audience has access to it like that.Be sure to visit the Slide America IMDb page and give it a vote/review!
