Thanks to Diego and Freerun magazine for a great feature on the Car Danchi crew in the new issue! Just got the magazine yesterday and was excited to see the nice layout and photos. Entitled “Pop Powder Session” the story covers everything we did during the making of the latest movie. I love making the movies, but it is always nice to see good photos get printed on paper that you can cut out and tape on your walls. This story has a couple of photos that would be worth clipping out.
Here is the cover to start off with. These days all the magazines come with DVDs included, which means they are wrapped in plastic and you can’t stand there and read them at the book store. This issue comes with two DVDs the FR TV regular and a special “Kissmark World Tour” DVD. Don’t ask me to talk about that one… The FR TV DVD has a feature of me talking about the movie and also showing how you can watch the secret bonus movies that are hidden on the DVD.
First spread has nice shot of Yama getting some rare sunshine powder and Deshi with a super night time heelside spray. Key photo took most of the shots for the story.
More powder shots, and then one of my shots of Yatto with a big switch backside 180 method, and a nice shot of Ruiki Masuda by Hajime.
The last page features Hayato slashing a pillow somewhere in the backwoods of Hokkaido and a shot of me! Yes, that’s right, I actually got a shot in the magazine, as in me riding! Thanks to Key photo for snapping this nice sunset/flash shot. It is pretty rare for me to get a riding shot in a magazine and I am pretty stoked about it, so I think I will put a big scan of the photo below.
