POSTED: Friday, July 4th, 2008

Kudos to the marketing gods at Lakai… the skateboard company has just announced they are re-releasing their TWS skateboard movie of the year, Fully Flared, as a “special-edition” DVD. The FINAL FLARE DVD set consists of one HD Blu-ray disk and two standard def disks that include Fully Flared, photo galleries, unused scenes, alternate edits, unused clips, top secret film, tapes from the vault, plus a 60-minute behind the scenes documentary feature.

Apologies to the thousands of people who bought the original edition of FF - it’s now been rendered obsolete.

Red Bull Shoot to Thrill Contest

POSTED: Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

In an effort to unite the Canadian skateboard community around one common project, Red Bull Shoot To Thrill is back in a whole new format leaving no Canadian maple leaf unturned.

Building on its past success, this year’s event offers new opportunities to skaters across the country. When it all began in 2006, Red Bull Shoot to Thrill was a 72-hour photography contest. In 2007, it evolved into a Super 8mm motion picture contest. Moving with the momentum from last year’s film project, which starred such skaters as Rick McCrank, Alex Gavin and Ryan Decenzo, this year’s event opens its doors to the entire country with pro and amateur categories.

Red Bull Shoot to Thrill Video Contest

Ten selected ‘Pro’ teams from the major Canadian cities will be equipped with a Super 16mm Camera and 10 rolls of film. And for three days - Sept. 5-7 - they will have 72 hours to burn it all in this battle to win $8,000 cash for the best end-product. Photographers will also have a chance to dip into the pot, with a $2000 prize for best photo.

Not to be canned, crowned and forgotten, the ten pro films will also be brought to a screen near you. Stay tuned on Sept. 8 when a series of Red Bull Shoot To Thrill film premieres will be announced on redbullshoottothrill.com.

NEW IN 08 - AMATEUR DIVISION
Due to last year’s overwhelming response, and the nerve-ending task of picking only ten pro teams from this country’s sea of talent, the ‘Am’ category has been created to give a platform to our best up-and-coming talents. Matching the timeline of the Pro division, amateurs will be able to upload their best 3 - 5 minute digital segment from Sept. 5-7. The winner will be decided by the people via an open online vote on redbullshoottothrill.com, with top choice claiming $3000 in new filming equipment.

Win a Whistler bike pass… for a decade?!

POSTED: Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Nope, not a joke. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the Whistler Bike Park is giving away a full facility pass - that’s good for ten years! But wait… it’s gonna take a little work for a prize this good.

“The Whistler Mountain Bike Park 10th Anniversary Mash-up Contest begins June 30 and runs until September 10. In order to be eligible to win the 10-year bike park pass, contestants must submit a bike video, 90 seconds to two minutes in length, edited from 15 minutes of unedited footage supplied by film companies The Collective and Freeride Entertainment.

Videos will be judged based on originality, footage selection and the personal connection. Editing quality carries the least amount of weight to accommodate for all types of editing programs, but could easily be the difference between the top spots.”

If you aren’t of the movie-making vein, you can still win something. Enter to score yourself a Kona Stab Garbanzo full suspension mountain bike just by clicking on www.whistlerblackcomb.com/bike. You can also find out more about the video contest there too!
