February 11. That’s the date to put in your diary to watch the latest short film production from DC Shoes. AIR.CRAFT (a little web 2.0 I know) is the title of a new freestyle film starring DC Motocross athlete, Robbie Maddison and from the look of the trailer it’s going to be well worth a watch – most likely several times!
The legendary freestyle motocross rider was keen to create something not just different but spectacular too. The short film was shot over three days at a military airplane graveyard in Tuscon, Arizona.
“I really wanted to create something different so moto fans can see something new and interesting, really making this as special as possible. Thanks to all the guys at DC and also Red Bull for believing in me and supporting me with wanting to create this project. It was the perfect timing with the direction I wanted to take this sport and I’m so thankful that DC was able to help me bring this to fruition,” said Robbie Maddison, DC Motocross athlete and star of AIR.CRAFT.
The location was perfect for creating a one of a kind moto film. Over fifty planes of various sizes and conditions were carefully positioned and manoeuvred together to create the ultimate freestyle motocross playground for Maddo. FMX tricks are dangerous enough in the standard arena setting but using different parts of the planes for landings and jumps make it exponentially more dangerous.
You’ll be able to see the step-ups to airborne shipping containers and backflips over planes on our dirtZone video section from February 12 but if like me you can’t wait that extra day, get yourself over to DC Shoes YouTube page on February 11.
Being a DC Motocross athlete it’s no surprise that the film will feature some new gear from the popular sportswear company. AIR.CRAFT will debut the Robbie Maddison Teamworks Collection of footwear and apparel as well as his signature DC Motocross gear. Featured in the video are the RM Madstar Tee, RM Emblem Tee, RM Logo Tee, RM Mixer Tee, RM Stars Hat, Bridge Maddo Shoe, and the Pro Spec 3.0 VLC RM Shoe.
