Thought behind the thought
To embark on a new journey is probably something that excites all of us. The anticipation of discovering new things, the sense of adventure it brings, and the enrichment and satisfaction that follows! Every road takes us through a new terrain, every turn opens our eyes to a new dimension and every obstacle brings out qualities that we never thought we possessed.

And the most interesting journey that we can make is probably the one inside our own mind! For, that is a place full of undiscovered hills and valleys, streams of reason and imagination and forests of feelings. What could be more fascinating than accompanying ourselves on a journey across the landscapes of our mind!

Film project “Imaginate”(year 2013) by street trials rider Danny Mac Askill.

About the art
"Project Imaginate" a trailer, and 5 episodes to promote the riding clip which is hugely popular, with  over 14 million views ! In this project, Street trials rider Danny MacAskill brought his child hood ultimate playground to life, only this time he rode it for real!

Danny MacAskill is a professional street trials rider for Inspired Bicycles Ltd, born and raised in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. What he does with his bike, is nothing short of performing art! And the animation video above fully conveys the sense of adventure and excitement that must abound in his mind when he rides!

On April 19th, 2009, when he was 23 years old, Danny released a 5:30 minute street trials video on YouTubeset to ‘The Funeral’ by the Band of Horses. Little did he know, this video was about to change his life. Filmed and produced by his flat mate Dave Sowerby, “Inspired Bicycles” got a few hundred thousand views over night and as of today has been watched over 34 million times.

Since the video went online, things have progressed really fast for Danny. He found himself featured in theNew York Times and several other big publications and was nominated for sports award in the category “Action Sportsperson of the Year” at the Laureus World Sports Awards as well as for the National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Award. Naturally he gave up his job as a bicycle mechanic and moved to Edinburgh to ride his bike full time.
