So my girlfriend has been working on doing this t-shirt design for Pierre Wikberg over the last month or so and I kept asking her what the deal with VHS was? But in the last weeks I finally found out it is a new website/blog, but rather than give you my version (which would probably say this looks to be an amazing new addition to the world of snowboarding media that is flooding our lives), here is the low down from Pierre and Eddie (Wall):
California, March 26, 2010 — The goal of VHS, www.videohypershred.com, is to update videos and photos every single day of the season. The clips will be short, raw, and feature pro snowboarders, ams, legends, friends, skaters, girls, drunks, industry tools and animals. The site will include all types of snowboarding; film trips, fun laps, bangers, trick tips, archival footage, interviews, behind-the-scenes, hugs, high fives and much more.
VHS will be a great way for riders and companies to get their talent and image out to the public every single day. The creative possibilities are virtually endless and VHS aims to entertain everyone, whether they be pros, weekend warriors, kids, teens, fans, haters, or single women between the ages of 20 and 40.
The internet has changed the way snowboard videos are viewed. Declining dvd sales and growing online activity are signs that the old formula of how we film and view videos needs to change. Filming 200 days a year for a 2 min video part doesn´t make as much sense as it used to.
“Times are changing and we want to change with them. I feel like snowboarding has more to offer then a two minute video part at the end of the year. I just want to show people everything that is involved with snowboarding and this is the perfect way.” says Eddie. Pierre also comments “I have been filming for a long time and I am very excited to dive into something where I can combine my Facebook updating skills and my filmmaking.”
VHS is open to work with all snowboarders and companies.
