Olivia Monks has been hard at work filming for the past two years, along with the whole Florida Ride Crew putting in blood and sweat riding in front of her lens. The results of her work are finally coming to an end, and a final product. This full length video is called The Florida Ride Video.
Full parts from Jona Humbel, Todd Duff, Chandler Marshall, Michael Hohmann, Marcus Davis, Brian Noyes, Frankie Hammer, and Joe Calzon. I asked Olivia a few questions, and she put together a trailer to get our viewing audience excited about this amazing full length video that is going to come out.
Olivia Monks Interview
How has filming been going so far?
Now that we know the expected release date, does this make you nervous to finish?
So nervous, some people have close to 3 minutes of footage and some are barley pushing two minutes, so yeah I’m nervous but with summer here and finishing up school, there is nothing stopping us from getting it done and i know it will be.
Now that filming is almost completed do you feel like you have an enormous weight off your shoulders?
I don’t think the weight will be off my shoulders, until i get off my flight in California on june 29th, and see the video posted. I know that we will be filming down to the last week, so i feel like i have more weight on my shoulders now, then ever before, at the begging we planned on a year video thinking that it would be enough time. Now we are still filming, over a year and a half later, its not as much time as you think.
Is this video going to stand out from other full lengths?
Thats my goal. videos are not done well in scootering a lot of them lack a lot of production value, it’s not always about the riding its about the scenery, and what happens when your not riding, and i hope to be able to incorporate that in to the video. My other look on it is that no one takes the time to film an HD video, a lot of its slapped together, and i hope that i can change that. On top of the gnarliest street riding in Florida.
What can we expect from this video?
A really enjoyable video to watch with completely different riding from each person. Everyone has a different style, and does different tricks. Your going to see riding from Florida that you didn’t really even think existed.
The online premiere for The Florida Ride Video is June 29th, right here on SR. Judging from what Olivia said this will not be one to miss.
