This November, filmer Ian Post and Team Manager Patrick McCarthy from 686 put together a trip to New York to start the filming for 686s movie. Myself, Ian Hart , Ian Post, Cam Pierce, Max Lyons, and Erik Hoffman drove around looking for spots and snow from Buffalo to Albany. It was awesome to start filming and to be out in the streets again. It was also awesome for me to go back to the East Coast since I’m from there. We had a blast on this trip, even through it was a short one and it was very early in the winter–it always feels good to lock down some hammers early season. I couldn’t be happier about the 686 crew and making a movie with these guys. This winter is gonna be the shit!
