“I was really tired of wasting time on shoots and having to convince cameramen and producers that a shot was worthy, so I thought it would be great to ultimately have the final say,” Richie said. “I also feel that I have a pretty good sense for what it takes to get the job done. That’s why I decided to produce my own video for a change.”
Schleyer hired Darcy Whitenburg (lead camera) and Colin Jones (edit, camera), the producers of Roam and The Collective, to film him over a period of three months at his favorite riding locations in Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton.
After a total of eleven days of filming and eight days of editing, the Richie Schley Chronicles were completed.
“It was a very refreshing experience,” Richie remembers. “Darcy and CJ worked well with me and let me know when I was wrong about a call I made. This is a video I can really identify with because it show my favourite type of riding.“
Richie Schley’s new video has been launched on Freecaster.tv this weekend. http://freecaster.tv/1000006_1006286
