World of Echo: Motocross Interviews, Articles, and Videos

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

Another video feature has been added to the site. I got together with Jeff Walker just before Christmas to shoot some stuff at Florida Tracks & Trails and 74 Family Fun Park. Some digital stuff, some film stuff. His style is pretty reserved, but he still knows how to toss his 450 around when he wants to! Pure speed. Let me know what you think. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Read more about Jeff and the trip below! If you're curious and have the time.

Welcome back everybody, as I seem to say every time: sorry for the delay. This one certainly being longer than usual.

A lot has changed in my life since the beginning of the year (and since starting the site, which is coming up on its one-year anniversary here soon... jesus). I've taken up a part-time job at my family's business, a CNC shop specializing in resharp work: mostly scoring blades, carbide wheels, etc. My grandfather started the business years ago, with his wife, my Dad, my Aunt, and a few uncles and cousin's working there at one time or another. He has been able to pick up some of the slack work the last few years, but his age is starting to catch up with him, so I'm taking over a lot of his work there.

Of course, the plan is still to continue with World of Echo when I'm able to, making videos, conducting interviews, and writing articles. I honestly have plans to do more of all of those things, but it will have to wait until after I get off work during the week!

Either way, I have two interviews coming down the pipeline right now, this being one of them. It's a conversation with Avery Rost, who is an up and coming moto filmmaker out of Green Lake, Wisconsin. He interned with my last subject Kyle Cowling, oddly enough, which made for some fun conversation. He's a good kid with a lot of talent on his newly acquired RED setup. I look forward to what he has to offer in the future, and I hope after you're done reading, you will too. Some samples of his work are sprinkled throughout.

(Also, since I plan on tackling even more written topics this year in-between my work schedule, I've decided to retire the audio shows. I'm not sure if I will bring them back, but for now I'm going text-only again. Havoc, what's that text-to-audio program you use? I might recommend people to use that if they want to listen to these...)

Grats on the job, but...Beware the shop life!

I use the "Read Aloud: Text to Speech" extension for Chrome. You highlight all of the text first, then choose a voice type and the speed at which it reads it to you in settings or options, then go! Downside to it is when it reads through any of the ads or inserted text that appears in the body of the text on an online page. It sure frees up time though!

Just got approval for the next interview to go up over the weekend. I've been trying to do something with Jordan Hoover since last summer, but he warned me he was a busy guy... Well, if it's any indication, our conversation finally landed today. This was pretty much the antithesis to last week's subject, where within the week I first contacted him we had an interview live. This stuff fluctuates is all I'm saying!

I love Jordan's outlook on life, his passion for the sport (and the art surrounding it), and his willingness to do everything on his own terms. I implore you to check out his website - http://uniformco.online. Lots of abstract works in and outside of moto. The fifth installment of his "Document" magazine project is still available for purchase there as well. If you haven't already gotten ahold of any, that's a good place to start. Our conversation is linked below if you've got time to check it out. Thanks.

Discussion includes: Moto banter, the foundation of his relationship with motocross and Fox Racing, why Instagram sucks, societal conformity, challenges and rewards of running an independent publication, and plans to create the next open space for creators with “Uniform,” among other things…

I know it’s been a couple months, but I’ve been working on a couple of projects (both inside and outside of World of Echo) that I hope to share with you guys in the weeks to come. The first one to hit the web is this video I shot at Freestone during the JS7 Spring Championship. I met up with Texas filmmaker Charles Bakke and we collaborated on this video (he shot all of the VX2000 footage). He has a video coming out as well from the event that will definitely be worth a watch. Here's a link to his channel!

As usual, there’s an accompanying article with photos and stories from the trip. I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun filming a motocross event, so I hope to return to Texas one day and do it all again! I also got to meet the elusive Donut MX as well, which was great. He shot a video too that should be a riot.

New interview out with Evergood's Tom Journet. We met up at Freestone during the JS7 Spring Championship to talk shop and Tom was cool as ever, considering he gave me the time of day during a super hectic trek across the south from Florida to Texas. Tom handles all of the video work at Evergood, including most of production of their flagship "Innermost" series. I learned how he tackles those projects, his relationship with fellow Evergoodians Matt Rice and Eric Shirk, and how he almost froze to death in the Rocky Mountains driving from Las Vegas to Iowa.

A more formal "Discussion includes:" Growing up at Raceway Park in New Jersey, creation and evolution of the “Innermost” video series, French music, loathing editing, and almost freezing to death in the mountains of Colorado, among other things…
