Guest Post: Behind The Scenes With Dan Barham

Words And Photos By Dan Barham

The next installment of the always awesome Kranked series is a mere two weeks away - Kranked Revolve is slated for a June 1st release and from what I’ve seen already it’s destined to be the best yet.

For the second year running I’ve been lucky enough to work on stills for a section of the movie, and was yet again blown away by the level of riding, creativeness and craftsmanship that have been captured on film. It’s truly awe-inspiring, and as usual the Coastal Crew were fantastic to work with; if any aspiring pros out there want pointers in work ethic they need look no further than Dylan, Curtis and the Kyles for how it should be done - relentless optimism, professionalism and just general awesomeness is all these guys know.
In lieu of the magazine-bound action shots, here’s a sneak peak taster of some of the behind-the-scenes images from my time with the crew:
Every single bit of trail needs to be picture-perfect

Kyle's always stoked to drop in one more time

A sneaky teaser shot of one of the most insane structures I've ever seen. You won't believe your eyes when you see what we got.

Not only can Dylan shred at a pro level, he's an amazing VT editor as well.

It's often difficult to appreciate the size of some of these features without a sense of scale

Thank God for waterproof boots. I spend a lot of time in rivers.

A lot of my shots wouldn't be possible without help - Laura and Dan are killer assistants.

Wait till you see what they saw...

Williams Lake

The 3 of us went up to Williams lake for a few days this past weekend to finish up James Doerflings segment for Kranked Revolve. I did some mini sniping with my point and shoot, of random events from the duration of our trip.

Brendan Howey

Howey is probably one of the coolest, nicest, RADEST kids I have ever met. He sent over these photo's from a little back yard session he had recently. Check it out.

Doing what he does.

Getting ready for the 09 season.

Howey getting steezy out of a berm and over a roller! WOW!


So fresh!
