Joe Simon has been pushing creativity in BMX filming for years while working on videos for Mutiny Bikes, and this is another example of his pursuit of progression. After 6+ months of trying out different remote controlled helicopters, he started flying with a camera(Canon 7D, in this case) about two weeks ago and this impressive edit is the result of his initial tests. I’m a huge fan of BMX filmers who consider their filming a craft to creatively showcase and not just record the riding and to say Joe does that is a huge understatement of the amount of time and effort he puts into his videos.
Joe’s consistently high quality, well put together work has made him the poster-boy for HD filming in the realm of BMX. Beyond this work he is a very well respected wedding videographer, shooting very high end wedding films (he recently filmed NFL quarterback Tony Romo’s wedding in Dallas at the end of May) and teaching workshops on filming throughout the US.
