Here's the first half of a Hackrifice video I'm working on. The second half will star Manna Mpepo. Comments would be awesome :)

You should really use your powers for good more often, Erik.

Pleasure to view. Music choice and the editing obviously were together, and I really liked it.

Could I bribe you to do another sequel to the Johnny and Erik Chan december 06 video?

I wasn't so sure about all the slow motion, but I think it's growing on me. Making unfinished moves look finished in videos is another pet peeve of mine, but this video was great. Andrew's fun to watch and Erik's good at filming and editing.

Stoked to see footage of one of my favourite footbag players!

Also, the fixed gear bike in the video made me get confused about what forum I was on! haha

Miss you!

I will be in Winnipeg at xmas!

Andrew has some of the best posture in footbag, and of course he's also an insane beast. The combo around 2:00 got a big ol' fistpump out of me.

Not my favourite kind of music, but the vid syncing to it was great (best I've seen as far as I can remember), and the shots past various foregrounds were great, and the interview was great. Showing drops in videos is super cool too.

Really looking forward to the next one. Thanks for making them.

ha, awesome!
have been away on a surf trip, so this was a nice surprise to come back to!
Erik, you have the uncanny ability to make me look much much better than i really am. It must be so disappointing for people to finally play with me in person. Erik, i think this is the best editing you have ever done. cut so tight. I would love a downloadable version in higher quality if possible.
sMiley: I know what you mean about clipped tricks looking like people have hit them. That being said, the only trick that i didn't hit that day that was clipped in the edit was the fairy ss double pickup. all the others were complete, just erik's editing style.

Wicked, I'm glad you like it Andrew :D (And everyone else!)
Jay: I would love to make another Johnny and Erik Chan video. I am usually bereft of half the ingredients required, however :( Maybe I can make a weekend of Hamilton in the near future, as I'd love to visit Mike Faille also, and my uncle.

Sick video, super entertaining work guys. You need a follow up video showing the tricks that were mentioned in the dialogue sections. I'd like to see some symp quantum ducking and rev. swirl gyro symp l.o.?! Whao...
