I simply had to make this video after meeting "James" a very enigmatic man who has taken it upon himself to collect one bicycle from each developmental epoch for future generations to enjoy , a kind of time capsule if you will !
Hi Everybody ,sadly my friend James "The Spokesman" has passed away from lung cancer last week
Thank you Warmest regards, Dean
It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!

Filmed for the Vimeo A Minute of Simple Pleasure for the weekend commencing Sat 9th November 2013.
We originally set out to film something arty with a DSLR and vintage Zeiss glass. But then the randomness of this presented its self to us and we couldn't resist. Filmed on an HTC Camera phone. 1080p HD 30fps. Getting the timing spot on took a couple of goes.
It's not quite the art we'd been envisaging, but hopefully it's still a pretty good use of a minute worth of video.

ELEVATION drops in at over 7000 feet, showcasing the new Top of the World alpine trail on the Peak of Whistler Mountain.
For the first time ever, the Peak Chair on Whistler Mountain opened for mountain bikers this summer and made the dream of riding the alpine a reality. The Elements of Perfection team and riders went all out for the final video of the series and the result is as unique as the ride.
Although Top of the World is now closed for the season as we wait for the snow to fly, there is no doubt that its return in 2013 will be even more anticipated than the last.
