Filmer/Editor: Colton Feldman
At the beginning of last season, we had the great pleasure of encountering Colton Feldman. With his army of friends who were ridiculously good at snowboarding, he churned out a series of entertaining edits dubbed Feldman Fridays. As with all our great regular features, the weekly edits dwindled, but the movie making continued. So we caught back up with Colton to get the full story on the forthcoming Dump Em Out.
How many times did telling girls to “Dump Em” work this season?
Only a couple, best one was up in Plymouth, NH. Girl dumped em, i bird bathed her and a couple kids poured different beverages on her head all at once. A trifecta of happiness. Fantastic.
Where did your filming adventures take you?
We went to the east coast, and Minnesota to film shitty rails and then I was recently invited to Superpark so I went to Mammoth. Most of the time I stayed in Truckee but Reno got snow a couple times so we would just cruise down there and hit all their shitty rails.
Where there any spots that were particularly fruitful?
Reno was probably my favorite. We just knew were everything was and it was so close to home that we got a lot of stuff done. Also UNR had a wicked sweet cafeteria that we could eat at. MN would be cool if it wasn’t so damn cold, that kinda makes it hard to enjoy.
Your internet presence really dwindled over the season, what were you doing? Saving all the good stuff?
I guess I was trying to save the good stuff in a way. I will have a couple new edits soon to make up for it, promise.
Was it annoying that Forest kept winning contests rather than filming? Did you at least make him pay for some gas?
No, not at all. Forest dedicated a good 2 months to filming. He’s an amazing snowboarder and friend, he put a lot of work into his part. We all split gas everywhere but I think he bought me a couple Bruggers bagels. I owe you Forest.
Who else rode killed it for you camera especially hard this season?
Everybody did amazing stuff. I swear Nial Romanek could ride his snowboard upside down and still press a kink rail. Matt Rabow and Dylan Bonnie are amazing to watch and did some really cool stuff as well. Johnny Brady did really well at Superpark. Mark Wilson has some good footage and Will Bateman had some unbelievable guitar hero solos.
Which videos are you most looking forward to this year?
Friendly Fire, House of 1817, Bon Voyage, In Color, and the bhappy movie seems to be looking damn good. Rob Balding (get in the van) and I are not 100% sure if we’re doing Dump Em Out together this year so if we each do our own thing I would be real excited to see his project.
What do you think makes a snowboard video good?
I like when a film makes people laugh. Have some “cool” tricks but doesn’t have such a serious, professional vibe to it.
Filming/editing set up?
I have a great dane pup and an hvx200 that straps nicely to his big head. He also edits everything.
When can we expect the final product to drop, and where can the people see it?
The movie should be done by the end of this month or maybe sometime in August. It will be a download movie and all the money will be donated to a friend of mine who had the bad luck of getting brain cancer. So, DONT BE STINGY AND DOWNLOAD IT
