How much impact did Bmx dvd's have when you first started riding? Videos did make a huge impact on me when i first started riding, mainly because that was the only way you could watch bmx as it wasn't in the media at all. What was the first BMX movie you saw? There was this old tv show called high five and one of the episodes was about Matt Hoffman, that was the first thing i saw of bmx. Not really a bmx movie, the first proper one I watched was s&m 44 something. What feeling did you have after you watched it? Well stoked! My friend had it on VHS and i watched it until it stopped working. Who's parts were most memorable? Can't really remember it having actual sections but for me Keith Trennor stood out the most. I met that dude about 7 years ago when i was in cali, he was crazy. He was sat on this dudes coach screaming slayer at the wall. What has been your most watched Bmx movie and why? Probably scum Lights out, that was the first video someone bought for me. I got it for christmas one year and loved it. Butcher and Winklemen sections were sick! What is your favourite Bmx movie if not the one above and why? Would have to be Lights out What was the last Bmx movie you saw? Animal cuts What feeling did you have after you watched it? Was a little bit long for me Who's parts were most memorable? Thought Dave belcher and Nigels sections were real solid How much impact do you think Bmx movies have now? For me nowhere near as much as they used to, i tend to watch a lot more skate videos these days.

Clint Reynolds answers has also been around a good while under the East coast sun shine, heres what he had to say about his visual influences from past and present. How much impact did Bmx dvd's have when you first started riding? A huge impact, I remember pedaling my bike vast distances to the bike shop just to buy a video. What was the first BMX movie you saw? Thunder, I was probably in Elementary school. What feeling did you have after you watched it? I didn't think that it was even possible to do that on a bike, I was blown away. It made me want to ride so bad. Who's parts were most memorable? probably all the trail riding. All the stuff at posh was sick. Back in those days all I new was trails, I couldn't even spell feeble grind. What has been your most watched Bmx movie and why? I would have to say seek and destroy. The sound track was sick as well as the riding, Stauffer holding those tabes never got old. What is your favorite Bmx movie if not the one above and why? Who brought the Dudes. Brian Yeagle and Derrick Girrard made that movie for me, both big influences in my riding. What was the last Bmx movie you saw? Bone Death by Sean Burns. What feeling did you have after you watched it? Holly smokes that was sick, and pretty weird. Who's parts were most memorable? Definitely Seans part for the obvious reasons, everyone had a really solid part. I think there is going to be a Bone Death movie that comes with the riding dvd, I can't wait to see that. How much impact do you think Bmx movies have now? Not nearly as much as they once had before the Internet, and sites like the come up. I still think they have there place but not like the once had.
