How was the filming process in the Grenadines for you?
I enjoyed the challenge of filming for the APP, it was very different to my usual kind of video projects where you try to film your best tricks. In this process we focused on three specific angles, which means we had to film the many tricks the times. Then we would do them twice from the same angle to make sure we had it perfectly executed. We had lots of wind and good light. It was very intense and also more work goes on behind the scenes than just the riding.
How has being involved in the development of the new APP been?
The Academy and APP is a really big project. After filming it was important for me to write comprehensive text to go with the tricks. I like to make it detailed with very clear key points so that people can really improve. I was working on the unhooked section so I wanted to break all the different tricks down to make them more understandable and easy to visualise the progression.
What special features will the user enjoy?
I think the videos are great and really informative if you are looking to move forward, it is such a great tool. There are some fun interactive fea-tures too, like opening up threads to chat with others at the same level learning a new trick. You can also up load your trick and wait for others to vote on your execution.
How will the user benefit from integration with the community and team riders?
I think it will be a great way to see how pro riders do their tricks, as well as get tips from them or others if you are struggling to land your new move.
