FWDSET: Movement Video

It's been awhile since I've worked on a video and I'm really digging how this one turned out with Dilan. Initially, this video was supposed to be just a small short clip, but we ended up getting enough footage that we decided to make something more of it. Just a fun video of me riding around in Elysian and eventually making my way into Downtown Los Angeles. Keep your eyes peeled, it's likely you'll see more projects between us in the near future.

A little back story to this: Elysian Park was one of the first rides I ever experienced in Los Angeles (before living here). It was 2013 and I had flown in with friends from Florida to race in what would be the last Marathon Crash Race hosted by Wolfpack Hustle. I was utterly excited in my bones to be traveling to a city like Los Angeles to race and ride with friends. Little did I know, a year later I eventually would be influenced to make the move out to LA. The video unintentionally plays on my experience in this city, introducing Elysian Park as the first ride I embarked on with local friends and follows through into Downtown, where a majority of my time living here has been spent. It's been a good 3 years here in Los Angeles and this video really makes me nostalgic, reflecting how much cycling has brought into my life.

Be sure to watch the video below in HD and to follow @brutal_dilan on Instagram. Let him know if you dig it! He put a lot of work into directing, filming, & editing this video. Special thanks go out to Freqnt Flyr, Road Runner Bags, AARN, Origin8, and Theo Neuman.
