Proto: Catalyst 2010 DVD Teaser

PROTO - CATALYST 2010 Teaser from Proto Scooters on Vimeo.


Proto has been filming for this DVD for two years now. Everyone that I've talked to who has seen parts of it all say that it is going to be the most innovative video in the sport, something I don't doubt at all. I feel like the name, Catalyst, will prove to be very fitting once it drops. As far as the teaser itself, super well done but it could have used a few more riding clips...but nonetheless, it's awesome to see scooter videos being filmed/edited like that.

  1. One of the only team videos i will be purchasing this year. I feel this will be the group that sets standards for our sport and what will become of it.

  7. If you don't like this teaser then you don't know anything about scootering.

  8. Dan's hang five with the crate was definitely inspired by Steven Hamilton. The VHS quality shots are hilarious considering our sport is barely a decade old, and I can't wait for this to finally come out!

    you guys arent very smart are you?
    first of all, this video was a TEASER, and if you know anything about scootering or the riders in this video, then you would have been officially teased and hyped on this video. one thing that alot of people in the scooter world dont understand is the concept of a TEASER. the purpose is to show the viewer just enough to make them want to see more, not to release every single banger you have filmed and ruin the actual video.

    so unless youre a complete moron, this TEASER is freaking amazing, the editing/filming was flawless, and the riding itself was on a completely different level then most riders in the sport today, most likely including the kid that said the riding wasnt that good. i just have one question for ya big guy, what isnt amazing about brian murphy grinding the handrail at Rincon? or andrew broussard hucking himself off the mega ramp?

  12. Kids these days don't know the concept of what makes a good video, weather it be a scooter or skateboard being presented. With Andrew being in the game longer than I've even thought of scootering. The fact is that he started one of the most visited forum this sport has to offer. Also making products that raise the standards in what we put on our rides today. he is a pioneer. Not to mention the amazing riders backing his team up. I'm going to stop ranting about this one teaser, and save my opinions for what will be the next step in this scooter community. Can't wait for the video to come out.

  13. I originally wanted to post the names of all the riders sections I was anticipating... When I was done, I realized I had the whole Proto Team listed...

  14. we tried to make it not like the lucky teaser where everybodys best clips was released in the teaser and then the dvd was a big let down a teaser isnt a montage of peoples best landed clips obviously

    its funny that somebody thought we used vhs haha its super 8

    i hope that people like this but it seems like some just dont understand

  15. Theres a difference though, between putting all your bests clips in a teaser and putting only a few. Seriously I'm sure there was enough footy to drop some that aren't even hammers that are still good. I'm nitpicking here but thats my only qualm with the teaser.

  16. Ligit vid, cant wait for the the real one to come out im so buying it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I laughed at the VHS comment. The Super 8 looks so good.

    There is so much I want to say about the teaser but the comments above got me livid. It's embarrassing that you anonymous posters think it's just about the riding.

    Like, to me, this isn't going to be just a video, it's going to be the first real film produced in our sport. Get that into your heads. I mean if it's that hard just look up the definition of Catalyst if you don't know what it means...

    I'm so excited for this DVD, this is the real thing, and I feel sorry for those who don't understand what this video will do for scootering.

  18. you guys need more bird clips. heheh.

  19. I have been in the sport almost as long as these guys, but have always been secluded from other riders including all on the internet for the majority of my riding time.
    To me this video is awesome because it exemplifies how far this sport has actually come, all the tech, the style of riding, and the style of film, it all works so well together to portray my feelings about scooters.
    Its great to finally see some footage released from the secret closed down water park too.

  20. Sanchez will rape this fucking video to death.

  21. Preety boring, Dont care what you say. That i dont know what a teaser is or what? hahaha it made me feel like the video would be boring.

  25. I cant wait for this!!

  26. Too many random shots, i love artsy things but there it was definately a bit overdone with the birds. I will be buying the dvd no matter what though, seriously i am stoked. I havent been this excited since Anarky 2 no kidding. Im positive the riding wont dissapoint. Everyone arguing about what a teaser is needs to calm down, obviously it wont be all birds and trains in the actual video.

  27. to be honest only looking forward to a couple parts.
    it was quite boring but hopefully the dvd isnt
    song was kinda annoying js

  28. im kinda on both sides, its very true that there was pretty much no really good clips in it, but at the same time its only a teaser, editing was pretty cool, kinda hipsterish though : P, besides all of this it looks like a good video is coming


    p.s. no twan ?!?, haha i think hes to old now <3

  29. ^ I'm older than Twan haha. Mckeen, check the third post, I already beat you to it.

  30. i am not sure why people are being so negative, i think this video is exactly the progression scootering needs. Proto is taking this sport in the direction it needs to go.

  31. can't wait to see

    ReplyDelete
  32. it looks like a great video, and think in this,
    this video will get that all of us go out and ride more street!

  33. The only thing filthier than this DVD is some incredibly filthy dubstep.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Seriously when this video drops all the haters are gonna curl up in a little ball of embarassment.

    Pre cool hiding behind the internet i guess.

    No actually i dont think SCOOTERS know the idea of a teaser, Lucky ruined it by having to much riding clips, and this ruined it by having hardly any. Dont care what you say. I got bored of it, definately didnt tease me. from what all you guys are saying this will be the most legit scooter video or something? From this teaser alone it looks like it will be preety boring, I know the riders in it are good, not hating on any of the riders.

  36. Thought he was gonna jump the train :)

  37. honestly this is the most fun ive had watching a video. the non scooter clips werent that random they showed LIFE and the places they traveled too. and thats whats fucking missing in EVERYONES video. there is NO LIFE nothing about you or who you are.

    id rather have all you jerks not watch this video, b/c those people dont mean anything to you, as they do me.

  38. lol shes a girl who doesnt ride no duh she wont care about no riding clips Theo
