A few riders in Pensacola have been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the new video project from Joey Northrup, but other than that it seems he's been doing a good job of keeping it a secret. Well, the cats out of the bag now! We're excited (and you should be too) about the video, First Breath. Here's some information we managed to glean from Joey as well as some screen grabs so you know what to expect. We'll be keeping you posted on the release date and hopefully have a teaser up soon as well.
"Basically I used to do Volume Wakeskate vids with Scott and I stopped doing them but I still was filming all the time going to Scott's, riding with Danny and everyone and before you know it I had all this good footage and decided to do a video. Me and my friend Chapman Bullock are making it, it's called "First Breath." Chapman lives in LA and does motion graphic and 3d work out there, but we've both been in Pensacola editing this video. Me and him are really into 2d 3d animation stuff so I would say the video is like 40% graphics and 60% riding. Chapman just did the opening titles and some graphics for the new Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland that will be coming out in 2010 and the intro to our video is using some of those elements. It looks really sick. The lineup is Scott Byerly, George Daniels, Brian Grubb, Will Hambley, Reed Hansen, Aaron Reed, Graham Northup, Ross Gardner, Tim Kovacich, Danny Hampson, and a few others."
That's all we know, but we'll be sure to keep your posted!
