A short portrait of professional BMX rider Matty Long.
I grew up riding bikes with Matty. I stopped riding after I tore my ACL but Matty continued to progress and eventually began travelling the world because of his talent. This film was my first attempt at a "nardoc." I wanted to show that being a professional action-sports athlete usually isn't an everyday Redbull infused adrenaline trip.
