I’ve been riding with a video camera for a couple years now and love the
challenge of riding while filming other riders. Once in a while I get some great
footage of a cool stunt or being stopped by police ( they are very nice when
they see the camera ) or even some wipe-outs where blood is flowing, it’s
usually my blood. I plan to take all my video tapes and make one awesome
hardcore unicycling tape! Anyone else ride with a camera?

You guys seem to mix with the police often. What are you doing different?

I will definitely be a customer for your tape. I did some riding with camera at
NUC last summer. It’s not my camera, so I haven’t had time or access to do any
editing of the footage (yet). My best riding shots were of the Obstacle Course.
I rode it a few times with the camera going from the wheel to the upcoming cone,
and another time following Gilby through the course. I think on a giant screen
TV it will make people nauseous! This was all taped on Mini DV, which will allow
me to edit it with my computer, once I get everything set up.
I also have footage of Kris Holm on his home “trails and constructions” at
Vancouver’s North Shore. I will try to finish a tape in the coming months (at
least before NUC 2000…), though not for commercial use.

Re: Riding with video camera
I think video taping is an excellent idea. It helps show all the
variations of unicycling to those that can't be present for live looks.
Using slow motion helps one study the action from a neutral vantage
point. I just completed a 30 minute video showing MUni rides and some
rough terrain stuff. Glad to see someone else take the time to make
videos. Helmet cam should provide some interesting shots of the action
excepting wipeouts. When you get something ready perhaps we can
