I Just finished watching anther quality production from WestCoast Filmworks. In their newest release "Project Mayhem: California" we find Team Cali Boyz, US Stunt Riders and Racing 905 tearing up the streets and drag strips of California.
This sequel to "Project Mayhem: Las Vegas" is 60 minutes long and contains an additional 30 minutes of extras. It is well filmed and showcases both old and new school stunting styles. You'll see everything from no-handed 12's to skitching, circle wheelies to switchbacks. My personal favourite are the moving watchtowers, a definite "must see" stunt!
The producers of the film have upped the "maniac factor" by featuring some off the wall performances. In more than a couple of scenes you'll find wild antics like Brian Steeves surfing on the roof of a moving car. The video also has a nice dash of humour as demonstrated by the amusing shoeless stunting clips.
If you are fan of the first film, you are going to dig this one. WestCoast Filmworks has really improved upon the prequel. The filming and editing is top notch and the riders have some serious talent. My only suggestion for the next film would be to feature a few more crashes. It's not that I like to see riders get hurt but believe it or not I think crashing actually assists the sport. Let me explain. When someone who is new to motorcycling watches a professional pull a 12, it can look too smooth and too easy. If that same person sees some accidents he gets the idea that this sport actually involves some skill and thus is that much more entertaining. Those of you who stunt know how much time goes into perfecting your skills and demonstrating that can be beneficial.
A HUGE thanks goes out to WestCoast Filmworks for supporting UpOnOne.com. When you get your copy of "Project Mayhem: California" have a look at the back of the DVD case. The UpOnOne.com logo printed right on the box is just too cool!
