3 years, are you sure the name (Why Not?) was a good idea?
Christian: Hahaha, the name was the last thing we figured out for this project, but it seemed very fitting! But yeah, 3 years from start to finish. We never knew how long it would take, we just kept filming until it seemed done, then we buckled down and got the last few clips. 3 years sounds like a long time, but it feels like we just went on that first trip to Nor Cal a year or two ago!
Nathan: Hahaha it just seemed to make sense, seeing how none of it was really planned and we had no idea how long we’d film for or anything like that.
That’s along time to film for one project when the first year or so being close to a 36 hour drive apart. Was there ever a point when you decided ok enough is enough I am done with this stress? As many of us know this isn’t always fun there’s moments where it is simply pure stress strait to bliss.
Christian: Naw man this whole project was on our own time and stress free, that was the point really. I feel like a lot of the stresses associated with filming a video part come from being on trips and feeling like you have to be productive or "get something" just to get it. With no sponsor obligations or a deadline in sight we'd just go on fun trips and never really worried about anything, so they were all fun and productive! I'm sure Nathan felt a little stressed at the end as he was trying to wrap it up, but i think thats normal. Ending a part is never easy, there's always clips that get away and a few road blocks but no major injuries so thats always good!
Nathan: No not at all! This was a very easy going project that we would only be filming or doing a trip when both Christian and I had free time. So everything seemed to just flow. There were obvious times of battling a trick or something, but beside that, it was pretty mellow.
I think the last few weeks of filming though I put a little bit of stress on myself to get two last clips that were giving me trouble. It got to a point where I feel like pressure I was putting on myself to get them, was the reason they were giving me such a hard time. I was already happy with the part where it stood, and so I decided to let the last couple go for now and come back to them for the next project I start working on.
