Posted:I made a film about spinning for my last project at uni which the bbc saw and asked if they could put it on their website and local tv.



This is the edited down version (its 2'26'' on the bbc the full version is 7'43'') you might recognise some of the footage from my winter of spin video.



It's kinda a mini documentary but only has me talking so if you disagree with anything i say let me know, i always want to hear other oppinions.



click on the bit that says "why sandy likes getting in a spin"



www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham



Edit:

Full page article now permanently on bbc website

Posted:on the left about half way down a bit under the left picture and above where it says RSS.



glad people like it, it's going on all the local trains in the west midlands and on this big screen they have in the city centre. Hopefully this might get the spinning scene in brum going a bit more.

Posted:you did indeed, thats one of my favourite shots.

The link has been taken down for now to make room for stuff on the elections but it is going back up next week with a feature on spinning which will stay online.

Guess i was a bit too enthusiastic about posting straight away sorry.

Posted:thanks man... i just watched them both (the videos not the bbc thing which i culdn't find) and they're fookin top notch! i can name just bout all the locations and spinners in summer of spin so except for firetoy's we must have had a pretty similar (and damn fun) summer.

sunny



and winter spin is lush man! ubblove awesome editing and badass graffed up locations/urbanscapes with a damn funky soundtrack and some sickeningly tasty spinning... one of the best single spinner videos i've seen in terms of productions quality and content... well worth the wait!

biggrin hug
