Do you mean like documentary? Or narrative films based on extreme sports? I'm addicted to Mixed Martial Arts (UFC) and wrote and directed a short film about the physical toll of this type of sport. Does that count?

I got my first steady freelance gigs shooting snowboard and snowmachine (along with skateboard) videos when I was 14. Really helped to expand my abilities in both shooting and editing. There is no angle thats too extreme, no sequence too stressed. Its great. In the end I wanted to tell stories, not just provide a visceral experience. Every now and then I still work on them. If you ever see 'Nice!Gordon' in a skate shop, pick it up. I did the cut scenes between segments.

Funny enough, when your 14, and have grown ups stopping by the house at least once a week to drop off between 400-1000 bucks, your parents start to think your selling drugs pretty quick....mine did.

Extreme sports are great, because usually the camera is just as extreme. I would love to shoot a waren miller some day.

Yep, that's my dream job, shoot a Warren Miller film. But yea I can see how some parents would think that....
