Larry Alvarado: What’s this Parazzi $#!T

pa·pa·raz·zo   [pah-puh-raht-soh; It. pah-pah-raht-tsaw]
noun, plural pa·pa·raz·zi  [-raht-see; It. -raht-tsee].
a freelance photographer, especially one who takes candid pictures of celebrities for publication.

I do not go by this label but every time I am out filming my buddies and we get kicked out of a spot I hear this. I am a rider that just so happens to film. Spend a few minutes watching this video of the spots I encounter while filming my friends.
Big thanks to Matt @Profile racing, Colby @ODI, Chris @S&M for the great times!

Quick Flix: Tequesquite Park

All trails come and go. Here we have local shredder, Steve-Oh Sharp flowing the tequesquite jumps about a year ago. With the ongoing urbanization in riverside, they have been plowed and are in the middle being turned into a public park. Peep the photo below to see the plans.

Enjoy & distribute to your fellow humans,

ParKore: Kirk Shearer @ Bobby bonds

The Manna Machine is proud to present “ParKore”. These video will incorporate tons of skatepark footage and will be highlighting park riders or park in general. If you get kicks from flowing the crete then these videos are biologically engineered for you.

We met up with Redlands local Kirk Shearer at Bobby bonds skatepark in Riverside, California and ask him to film a few clips. He was totally down, so we threw him a monkey wrench. Kirk is super good so we asked him to just flow around the park and just do what eve comes to mind. As usual he wow'ed us with his creativity.
Yeah Brotherian!

Venue Breach: Luke Parslow’s “It is what it is Jam 2″

Luke Parslow's yearly "It is what it is" jam went down this weekend in our local area. With this event being so close to home, we decided to go and support our fellow homies. Luke is always looking after his boys and this year he stepped it up and wanted to help out the Thomas Hancock foundation as well with his continued Stephen Murray contribution. All funds went to both foundations to help our local riders & families.
As always the turn out was great! The jam started at 6pm and and Luke Parslow, Tj Ellis, Mike "Hucker" Clark, Cory "Nasty" Nastazio, Paul Langland, Kris Fox, Joey Cordova, Matt Cordova, Justin Spreit, Polo Padilla were there to shred. Big thanks to all the sponsors that made this hapen!

Super8 Movie: 20 Years ago

A few years ago my grandfather was getting ill due to his old age. My aunt uncovered many rolls of Super8 film that was shot and developed. She asked me to transfer it and make a Dvd. Unfortunately while I was transferring it, I bumped the projector and burned out the bulb. It isn't like they sell the bulbs at Walmart so the project halted to a stop. Long story short, I was in search of one and had no luck. Patience grew then and I had to return the films to the rightful owner. This is the 6-7 minutes that I transferred, I chopped the footage real quick and found a song that was near the time length of the movie. This footage is of my family from about 20 years ago, everyone has grown or passed now, but the future is bright.

Enjoy & distribute to your fellow humans,

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!
