Hey Jim. Thanks for taking your time out of your busy schedule for answering a jumble of questions from the BMX community. I appreciate it.
BMX DVD productions are becoming less and less. When I heard Props was stopping DVD production(s) of some of their long term projects, I couldn't believe it! I would always love waiting and anticipating for the next new vid, whether it was Props or a company team video, after seeing the trailer. You know that anticipation Im taking about?
It just seems like there are a lot of these online (decent in length) videos, that are just such excellent quality in both filming/editing and riding, that they can be made into a buy-able video! Productions at these calibers can easily benefit the production crew, the riders and companies if there was small price. I would pay for these videos! I always support anything BMX! iTunes or some sort of payable downloads would be smart. Even if it was $00.99!!
As a rider and filmer/editor myself, I do it because I love it! Those are my passions! For large companies and businesses though, like your own (just for example), just seems it would only be right to charge for that quality of production.
Do you feel the "new-age" BMX community are spoiled with all of these online webits that are free? Is this hurting the industries media formats? How does these steps in to the future of BMX media make you feel?
