A Logical BMX Step. A New Project

Dean Cueson Lawnmower

Today I am proud to announce a new venture that will be launching in the very near future. This website will be a combination of a past project and entirely new focus for BMX media.

What’s in the Cookie Jar?

The project will launch in August and will focus on people and their opinions and views on topics in an uncontrolled, raw, and unfiltered scenario. How they’re perceived is based on how they react. I will not allow anything or anybody to dictate their views on the subjects covered. If they feel comfortable discussing a certain subject, it is up to them to filter themselves.

Video content will be a key platform for growth with the new venture. HangupTV which has not been active for over three years has almost 700,000 views on a mere 7 videos, this to me is incredible statistics and it is something we can improve upon with the right content and people.

I have a number of people involved already who will be contributing opinion pieces and interviews.

Mark Webb and Troy Hayward

HangupTV will be the source of video content. I will capitalise on the YouTube channels success and integrate this as a main feature of the website. Opinions will be exactly that; if someone in the BMX industry or an established pro has something to say about the state of BMX culture or economy they are welcome to submit an article or counter article to the website and if it is of a high quality we will publish it.

Interviews will be a key promotion of this website. We want Pros, those who vanished, and those who make decisions to have a voice.

Logic BMX

I and my team aim to launch LogicBMX.com in August. We hope you will join us on this adventure.

You will see more content with people like Dean Cueson and with a lot of hard work, we will see Logic BMX become one of the pinnacle BMX media sites for those who want engaging and entertaining content.

Obsession: Sam Hamer

Obsession Sam Hamer

What made me post this old gem? I was checking analytics and SEO business and while searching the rankings this popped up.

I filmed this as a university (college + university degree) project for “online content” at the time I was already established in online media working for Vital BMX, but I wanted to branch out and try something different. I approached Sam Hamer who is a close friend of mine who I’ve known for many years about shooting a short skateboarding documentary on him. Looking back on this I was extremely proud when I finished it, but now I can point out everything that’s wrong with the oddly placed answers to the overly loud background music.

There is something so satisfying about reliving and looking back on the past. You can see how you’ve progressed and how you learnt to fix things. You can apply these skills to everything in life.

Needless to say, I think I may start producing more of these in the future if I  ever pick up a camera again. It fascinates me to shadow people and get a story on their lives and their obsessions.

If you think this would be a good idea let me know? Who would you want to see something like this shot with? Should I bring back the short “Obsession” series?
