"When transitioning from the sport of BMX to Filmmaking, you carry that passion with you.

In May of 1988, Mark Eaton produced the first independent BMX/Freestyle video titled: "Dorkin' In York". This was the first rider-produced video which would lead a revolution of independent, do-it-yourself BMX videos. Over the course of Mark's 23yrs+ production career, he has produced / directed countless BMX videos, documentaries, commercials, music videos, and tv series' such as the "Dave Mirra BMX Super Tour" TV Series for ESPN. Mark has been regarded by many in the bicycle industry as a pioneer of the BMX/Freestyle video, and is still known throughout the industry as a top action sports cameraman & DP. Combining the action of a sports video, with the visual style & creativity of a music video, Mark developed a signature style that people outside of the bicycle industry began to take notice to. Soon, commercials & videos for products unrelated to bikes began appearing on Mark's reel, but that hasn't changed his feeling toward the BMX genre': "Whether I'm cruising around on rollerblades, filming a pack of BMXers through the streets of LA, or directing a corporate image video, it's all about creating something unique, and I look forward to applying my creativity & years of experience to deliver our clients the best solutions for their budgets".
