The day has finally come!! And a whole month earlier than expected too! Ricky was initially aiming to release this on July 1st but I guess he was on a good grind and got it done a lot sooner than he thought. I’m super stoked to be able to share all his hard work with you guys.
First of all, I just want to give a huge thanks to Ricky for finally convincing me to do this. This was all Ricky’s idea and it’s seriously been in the making since the I had my FRS. He’s really been getting into video and the sad part is that he had quite a few videos of my FRS and then I went and sold it, so he never got a chance to finish it. With the CTR looking a little less stock now, he wanted to revisit the idea and start over. Typically, I’d be cool with it but he was trying really hard to convince me to add some of my own voice over in to the video as well. As you already know – I am cool with being on the back side of the camera but not on the other side… So putting my voice in a video was next level for me. LOL
He spent a lot of time convincing me of his vision of how he wanted the video to turn out and eventually I just caved and cursed him a million times and did it. He provided me with questions and/or thoughts to mull over and I answered them. I will admit that it’s a little weird to talk to myself but use a tone of voice like I’m talking to someone so that it sounds natural. Literally all I did was record my voice, handed it over to him and he did all the magic.
Seeing this video all completed with all the footage he captured paired with the music and the emotions it brings to me personally makes me super happy about how it all came together. He was able to bring how I feel about the blog to life and that’s important to me. This blog was never really meant to be about any “one” thing – it was and always will be a place for me to throw all my random thoughts and pictures so that anyone who cared to look or read about it could do so. More importantly, it will literally become an archive of everything awesome I’ve done and managed to capture and I’m stoked so many of you love following along.
I really really hope you guys enjoy the video – if not for my awkward voice over – then at least for the awesome video and music Ricky put together. He put a lot of hours into it and although it will be done for you in 11-ish minutes, I hope you guys feel the same energy I did when I watched it. Enjoy!
