To be honest, I was worried Cody and I were going to end
up in a cop car for this one. We shot this early in the
morning down a street in Compton. I hoped for only one
take so we didn’t draw any more attention to the motorcycle wheeling down the middle of a road, but we ended
up doing this about six or seven times. Not to mention, I
was in the bed of the pickup with no harness and the
RED on a tripod with little balance.
At FMF, the equipment list was endless. Cody jumps through an FMF flatbed truck upon his entrance into the FMF factory. It
was a tight fit following next to him in a full-size pickup with the outside course laid out. I stood in the back of the truck tracking
him from each obstacle. Not the sketchiest thing I’ve ever done, but definitely not the safest.
It was all smiles from Lil’ D and Brian Jelling (FMF Apparel), even though I put them through some dangerous stuff—
sitting on a bench and letting Cody ride 2 inches from their faces.
This is a shot of Cody waiting for take 15 on his entrance
to the FMF Factory. Lil’ D and I had tossed so many ideas
back and forth on this scene that it took a while to get
every angle covered, plus doing a nose wheelie through a
gate takes a little practice.
