Synopsis: What is the first thing that comes to mind when you see someone riding a unicycle? More often it is the circus theme or clowns, but have you ever considered that unicycling has recently become a rapidly growing extreme sport? Over the past twenty years, unicycling has come a long way since daring pioneers have gone from the beaten path on to rough terrain, performing feats and maneuvers that many people would never consider possible for a unicyclist to do. In Unison is a unique documentary film that explores this socially misunderstood sport. The story begins by addressing public reception of the sport and the stereotypes involved. Other relevant topics such as riding styles, the history of the sport, learning to ride, risks, and what it means to identify one’s self as a unicyclist in today’s society are all presented. As the story unfolds, an in depth look at the lives of three notable unicyclists reveal the true character and nature behind the sport, defining the difference between riding to entertain and riding for personal fulfillment. With first hand commentary and trick riding by talented and notable riders within the unicycling community, the integrity of this serious sport is for the first time ever defended from the common outdated stigma of being a circus act. A variety of characters representing the various riding styles of extreme unicycling provide an uninformed audience with a comprehensive presentation of the sport, bringing the passion of one-wheeled riding and its spectators together, in unison.
Just finished watching.
Brilliant, That was a really enjoyable piece of film. Thank you for your time and effort in making a great documentary.
Dude well done! I really enjoyed watching that!
That was great! I really enjoyed watching it.
I am so small in this video hahaha
Outstanding! Joey is a very gifted fimmaker, and he did a masterful job! I’m happy to see he included the “history of” part. His next stop will be to submit it to the Sundance film festival later this year. I am very honored to have been a part of it!
Wow, that looked proffesional. And was really nice to watch. Hope my friends will watch this
The thing I’m missing is more info about distance riding and commuting. I know it is not extreme part, but it is also underestimated.
Wow, that’s a great film and I think it can succeed in getting the sport across for a general audience. One discipline that I found notably missing is racing. Quite spectacular to see a top level race, e.g. finals at Unicon. Other than that, kudos to you!
Joey worked very very very hard on this and did a wonderful job. I have it on a disc and I show all my friends and watch it quite often.
really good documentary, i just finished watching it
i guess you made it not only for unicyclist people but also for non unicyclists, and for this for me the only bad point is that you should have say to the guy who was doing street to wear an helmet, in my opinion it’s not good at all to show this type of things with no helmet…
Good stuff. Props to the film maker and cast.
Very nicely made as everyone has said. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Think I’ll link it on my facebook too
Great documentary, really enjoyed that. Well done !!!
If there is a God out there, please be so kind skipping those few boring months which uselessly separate us from Feb’11.
By Feb.1st, 2011 the DVD will be in my Shopping Basket for sure!
Congratulations joejumps4fun and the ones who made this real!!!
This is really good. It flowed nicely through the informational sections, interviews, and riding showcase parts, combining them into the whole idea you were communicating. I liked it a lot.
Just got done watching. I absolutely enjoyed watching it. It was so professional.
Amazing, just amazing. Very entertaining.
watched the whole thing at work this morning with my monday coffee. really great, awesome exposure for the sport, and a really good watch!
lots of good riding and information, fun to watch it!
the only things i missed a little bit was the kind of riding style like cedric does (street on the 26") in skateparks and also a little the team sports as basketball and hockey, but probably you had a reason not to put it in.
