Re-run 430 – The Directors Cut

RE-RUN 430 BMX from STYLE43 on Vimeo.

Today we have a real treat from James Smith, who has produced a directors cut of the “Run” DVD, he explains all below! Stickied at the top of the site for the day! Thank you James!

“I originally filmed this back 2012 for a the DVD “RUN BMX” it was edited and produced in house by the guys at 430. Years later I found the raw footage on a hard drive and I was keen to do my own version and do a directors cut.
I only ever saw the finished DVD once when it came out, and made sure not to watch it again before editing to avoid influence etc.
It was an amazing experience being in japan 2 weeks filming and witnessing some amazing riding 1st hand.
The edit I have done is light hearted and not to worried about the duplicated angles and tricks.”
