Footwear firm brings in professionals to create flatland film

VIDEO: Vans Matthias Dandois Greenfilms edit

Shoe manufacturer Vans is increasingly present in the BMX world and on the back of recent announcement that it will sponsor Simpel Session prizewinner Dan Lacey, the firm has commited to a series of five web videos – the first, this edit from flatland wizard Matthias Dandois.

Film company Greenfilms were brought in to track Dandois across a number of cities and, in what is perhaps a bike film first, captured footage from a remote controlled helicopter.
