After a multi-year hiatus we finally brought out the defibrillator and shocked the Raw Tapes feature back to life. And that's right, we're launching a new series focused on the Static IV & V videos. Filmed over the years of 2007-2014, there's a LOT of material to dig through. And this first episode is a doozy! Nearly 10 minutes of raw footage with some never before seen clips, behind the scenes mayhem and some unseen bails and makes to give a little more context to some of the clips you've watched 1,000 times but may not have known how hard, chaotic or weird the setting was surrounding filming it.
This first episode features several legendary east coast names and focuses specifically on filming in Manhattan. Most of this footage is from 2013 when we were creeping around Manhattan on foot every day and digging for spots with different crews. The line-up of Ep 1 includes: Brendan Carroll, Joel Meinholz, Jahmal Williams, Mark Wetzel, Kevin Tierney, Quim Cardona, Billy Rohan, Aaron Herrington, Dustin Eggeling and Steve Brandi. Jahmal was always messing around with some wild ideas and has a lot of interesting near-makes that we'll get to enjoy throughout this series. And Quim is always entertaining and keeping us stoked with positivity. So dive into the first 10 minutes of Static IV Raw Tapes and we'll be back with more soon in this weekly series. Enjoy!
