Intro/Interview: Sietse van Berkel.

Some of you have been waiting for TSB14 for some time, but do you know who´s the brain behind it? We (Sietse and Navid) stayed in Helsinki for the video premiere of TSB14 and for the legendary Flatstyles jam the day after. Julius, the maker of the TSB series, was our host for these days. During our stay, before the premiere, he was VERY busy with the last things for TSB14. Who is this guy who makes one of the best web videos for years? A small interview with Julius Salo, creator of the TSB series:

Tell us about yourself please? Who are you, what do you do?
J: I’ m Julius, I’m living in flatland capital of Finland: Helsinki.
25 years old, started get into BMX around 2003. I work at a local bike shop and I’m doing some video projects besides that.

Can you tell us about the video projects you did? Where did you get the inspiration from to make TSB14?
J: My first flatland video was about showing the scene we having fun, nothing serious. I did a couple of movies like ’SCuFF THaT SHiT’ and ’I Don’t Quite Get It’. I see many small clips like progression clips on the internet. I didn’t want to get my videos got lost on the internet. That’s why I choose to make bigger edits.

When i made some courses in film school i got more inspiration from Finnish cool looking snowboard videos like ’Elekrep’ . I wanted to try something with the same kind of style, then I started ’ Too Small Bikes’ around 2010. It was a success among the riders, and I developed an addiction for making more videos. After the second and third one, which are kind of mixtape with different riders and styles i wanted to make something new.

TSB14 is a little bit different compared to previous TSB videos. Riders have their own part. I tried to make each part look like the rider by the music and way of editing & color grading. For TSB14 I had the help of the sound designer Tomi Hyyppä. He did an amazing job with the sounds!

Talking about web video’s, what’s your favorite video on the web?
J: Church of Pedro Melo.

You put a lot of work in TSB14. How much exactly?
J: First clips were filmed in 2012 and last 2014.
But how much time i used exactly… I don’t want to even think about it :D

What is your future plans regarding the TSB series?
J: I don’t know yet, but definitely something different. You will see!
