The crew from Freecaster.tv are set to produce MX DVD ‘Dynasty of Dirt’ featuring extensive footage from this year’s Motocross of Nations event in Italy.
“The fastest riders in the world, check. Awesome race action, check. A great cast of motoX heroes, check, and a story that keeps you right on the edge of your seat, check. It’s all going to be there in Freecaster.tv’s first time full-length motocross film Dynasty of Dirt 2009,” promises director Tom Jacobs.
The film focuses on the athletes and teams taking part in this year’s Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations. Immerse yourself in the hopes and dreams, highs and lows of those who put everything on the line for the biggest motocross event in the world. See how title holders team USA go up against a plethora of old and new challengers.
‘Dynasty of dirt’ — written & directed by globe-trotting photo-journalist Tom Jacobs — will capture all the action and the drama, unfolding ahead of the event and during the race weekend, early October in Franciacorta, Italy. You’re in the front seat when the world’s leading motocross nations go head-to-head. All shot in high definition with breathtaking additional footage and exceptional access granted by the event’s promoters, Youthstream.
‘Dynasty of Dirt’ is more than a motocross thrill ride, it’s a tale of courage, tradition and honour. It’s a character-driven thriller with unparalleled insight of the sport. When you only see one action sports film this year make sure it’s this one!
Producer/channel manager Mike Van Cleven: “Freecaster.tv has established a great following in motocross through our live GP coverage, our profiles and the pre-race shows. We always like to provide the fans with something extra. So creating a high-quality film about the Red Bull FIM MX of Nations certainly fits that bill!”
Director/writer Tom Jacobs: “Honestly, the Red Bull FIM MX of Nations is a killer package any director would kill for. Its race format is bound to create surprises, motocross riders make great characters and of course the Italian setting oozes passion and emotion! I’m thrilled to be working on this project.”
Luigi Zompetti, Vice President of Youthstream, “The Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations is the most important Motocross event in the year and we are sure Freecaster.tv will be able to produce the most exciting movie of the year then! Our cooperation with Freecaster.tv has been impressive despite this being only our first year of collaboration.
The “Dynasty of Dirt” project will surely add other important numbers to an already healthy audience of our sport.”
Raymond Dulieu, founder of Freecaster.tv: “Our success in MX is largely due to Mike Van Cleven’s relentless dedication to growing the channel and our own productions. Seeing him team up with Tom Jacobs to produce ‘Dynasty of Dirt’ allows Freecaster to embark on its most ambitious production project since we launched in 2004. I have no doubt that the success of the DVD and our related exclusive coverage of the Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations will allow Freecaster.tv and all its partners to set a new milestone in the coverage of Action Sports on Internet.”
