united- down under tour

Posted in Uncategorized on June 27, 2008 by Aaron

Man, this was well done. Down under tour comes free with the new issue of Dig, and is probably the best free video I’ve seen. James Cox put the video together (he edits most of the 4down stuff, and did the Atilla video a couple years ago), he did an excellent job. The titles and graphics are clean and the video flows really well, the filming is on point and the music selection is good. The video is fairly short and broken up into city sections; they visit Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide, Melbourne being the highlight as the street there is ridiculous (I’ve walked around that city, it’s everywhere). Most of the United team showed up for this trip, but the obvious standouts are Cory Martinez and Nathan Williams. Martinez is a machine as usual, busting out one ridiculous line after another. Williams is probably my favourite new school big bar kid- he has a way of adding little things to old tricks and combos that makes them cool and new; he also does the biggest hangover rail I’ve ever seen.

As I said before, the video is free with Dig, so there’s really no reason you shouldn’t have it. The issue of Dig that it comes with is great as well with an article about the trip, an interview with Garrett Reynolds (featuring at least some photos that haven’t been in videos), and a feature with this guy Andy Martinez who appears to be incredible.
