Rough Cuts

This is my submission to the Red Bull Rough Cuts Editing and Post Production contest of 2007. I was provided with 40 minutes of footage of professional skater Ryan Sheckler and had to edit it down to 3 minutes. I ended up as one of the Top 5 Finalists! (out of 1000 entrants). First I was chosen as one of the 25 Finalists by the Red Bull Creative Team and professional editors. Then the public voted online for their favorites and I was voted into the Final 5. Professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler chose the winner, and unfortunately he didn't choose mine to win, but I am still confident that my piece was quite worthy of winning. Take a look for yourself.

Red Bull just sent me a custom autographed Red Bull Rough Cuts skateboard deck from Ryan Sheckler. I'm guessing this was a gift to the top 5 finalists, but all 25 finalists might have gotten one for all I know. Either way it looks pretty sweet and if I'm ever in desperate need for money I could probably fetch a pretty penny for it on E-bay.
