The Goonies Vol 1

The Goonies Volume 1 from www.TheMannaMachine.Net on Vimeo.

In a far land distant from large city’s lays a town which some may consider desolate.
We feed in our concrete wasteland while dodging human rats in our path to scavenge our territories.

Hunt park rocks!

Here is another ODI flick. This time it comes with some aesop rock jams and Hunt skatepark action. We chilled out in riverside and filmed a lil bit at the park. The park was pretty hectic so we couldn’t film as much as we wanted to. The sesh was still fun and got few last clips in.
When editing this video we wanted to go towards the visual feel. We decided to go with a black and white video with some graffiti tittles and supplies. We shot all the free hand graffiti and spray cans and brought it into After Affects. From there we chroma keyed the images and over-layed them on the video. After a few tweaks here and there we were satisfied with our results.
With the graphics, music and the B&W it really made a great vibe.
Thanks ODI!

ODI “Finishline In store” Web video

We recently went on a trip with the ODI street crew to Mexico. The trip was rad! We cruised around Socal for most of the 10 day trip then made it toward the border the last few days. We stopped Finishline Pro Bike Shop which is the last bicycle shop before you hit the border. The dudes hung out with all the kids and rode a grind box. The atmosphere was awesome and all the riders did it right. Everyone met each other on the rider to rider level which made this edit come out great. These are the things you need to take into consideration when filming. It is not always about what you film it is how you make the riders involved feel.
