Blind X2 Vision Interview with Mike Manzoori

Mike Manzoori

Mike Manzoori

Mike, this is your second involvement working on a Blind video. How did this one come about?

I think it might have started cause TJ asked me if I had any music suggestions for his new video part, and from there I think he might have asked for me to edit it? I’m not quite sure how it unfolded, I suppose they liked my editing of the last Blind video “Damn…” and so Bill hit me up to edit this one.

What was it like working with TJ and YURI on X2 Vision?

Yuri and TJ are both pretty happy humans with good vibes and are really good at skating, so they are always fun skaters to film. Their parts were 99% shot by the time I got involved in the project, so we mostly filmed the intro together. It was scorching hot summer days, but a lot of fun just cruising around LA with them.

Once you got involved was there a set concept or theme, or did you create one that you felt fit the project?

When I got involved the title was in place and the basic structure was set up as a 2 person video. The first few rough cuts I did went too much into the double vision thing, and got pretty trippy. It got weird for a second there, but I got wise to my gimmicks and cleaned it up, haha! Also, the music selection changed that direction for me a bit as it went through a few phases. I don’t think anyone was trying to get too deep with this one, we just wanted to show them skating together having fun.

Were you involved in the music selection on this video? If so, how did you go about choosing songs for TJ and Yuri?

I worked with the riders to pick music they were into and we had the help of Lory Vincent to supervise the licensing of the tracks. The music the riders suggested didn’t work out for one reason or another which is normal, but having a bunch of suggestions helps me to pick tracks that will work for editing and the vibe I’m going for, and be tracks that the skater will be down for picking. The music is always important but can be tricky to find stuff that a lot of people will like, that enhances the editing/footage and is also affordable. I don’t think anyone realises the headache of finding and clearing music until they have tried to do it for a project. That’s why I was glad we had Lory to help as she has a lot of experience clearing tracks for skate videos so could suggest legit tracks and connections with labels to speed up the process.

What do you think of a 2 skater video?

I think why not? These days attention span is so short, so this is a good dose of shredding.

What was the funnest part of working on 2X VISION?

Cruising around LA with Yuri and TJ skating little nibbles, they are mellow and seem to really appreciate skateboarding.

Is this film a mix of footage or all one format?

It’s shot on all kinds of cameras but the format is all just standard HD.

Any spoilers?

They all live happily ever after…

How long did you have to film for X2 VISION?
Maybe around a year, something like that…

TJ is the shit man! He’s always full of energy motivating me and everyone around not just on skateboarding but on pretty much everything else, it was fun good times with this G! WOOO!

What cities and countries did you film in for the video?
Pretty much all around Brazil, parts of Spain, Italy, and Southern California.

10b

What was the funnest part of filming for the video?
Traveling to new countries, meeting new people and skating with all the homies, of course!

How was it working with Mike Manzoori on X2 VISION?
It was really fun man, Mike; he kills it! Mike has all these crazy-ass ideas and really knows what to do with them. I haven’t known Mike for that long, but I could tell when I met him he would be a sick guy to work with.

Any spoilers?
Nawwwww… hahaha!

Yuri Facchini

What was the toughest part of filming for the video?
Didn’t really have that much time to film everything that I wanted to do, and a couple tricks that were stuck on my mind, but that’s how it is, skateboarding never stops; will always have something new to try and to do.

What is next after this video?
Going to keep what I’m doing now, skating and having a lot of fun – always ready for the next thing.

Blind X2 Vision is now available on DVD and iTunes!

Blind Skateboard’s new video, “Damn…” is now available on iTunes.

BLIND SKATEBOARDS DAMN… TRAILER 2

Some fun facts about Blind’s new video, Damn…:

– Apparently they filmed every day for over two years.
– The footage is from various places, such as LA, Barcelona, Toronto, France, Texas, North Carolina, Amsterdam, Brazil, and Sacramento.
– There were some nasty injuries during filming; TJ Rogers had to get head staples, and Filipe Ortiz broke his foot twice.

According to Bill Weiss, “The vibe of the video is about pushing skating forward, fun and hustling in the street to make that happen.” It doesn’t take much, looking at the level of skateboarding in this trailer, to see that this video is going to be amazing. We can’t wait.
