Last weekend’s Formula Drift Seattle event at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington was unforgettable. Tons of familiar faces and unusually warm weather made for the best FD experience I’ve ever had. Since I’ve been shooting at this location so much lately, I was able to take my time and really enjoy the event, rather than scrambling to get shots.
Last weekend also marked a milestone for me, as it had been one year since shooting my first FD event with a media pass. FD Seattle ’09 was also when I met quite a few friends in the industry, such as Antonio Alvendia, Larry Chen, Drew Fishbein, Ross Fairfield, Will Roegge, and Josh Herron, among many others. Last year around this time, I knew next to no one and now I can comfortably say I feel at home in the professional and grassroots drifting communities.
With this video, I chose to take a much lighter approach than last year as a representation of the comfort and relaxation I now feel among my fellow videographers, photographers, and drivers who congregate for these great events.
This year, I also met a guy named Jason from ContourHD/VHoldr, who was nice enough to let me test out a couple of his HD 1080p wearable/mountable POV cameras for some of the shots!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me along the way, especially the MotorMavens Crew, Formula Drift, Evergreen Drift, and KP Race. Without all the love, it just wouldn’t be worth it.

NICE! Not too shabby, Shreeve! Especially for a person who showed up to the track with a big headache after the Apex’i/Lexus open bar party in Seattle! hahaha
Shreeve – Like Brandon said, you just get better and better. Love your perspective, some really super epic shots – and dope music choice. I think you may, indeed, be a Jedi…but don’t get cocky.
Thanks so much, everyone!
Fucking awesome Justin. Love it!

supper sick vid, feels like I was there again!! allways impressed with your vids man, keep up the good work. Oh, and how come motor mavens ran out of large size garage auto hero shirts? I still need one of those.
@Nathan: We brought A BUNCH of shirts to FD Seattle, but they sold out quickly! Should have gotten one as soon as you saw it at the booth. MotorMavens shirts are apparently in demand! =)
Don’t worry though, we’ll end up re-running them, so you can get some off our online store:
AWESOME VIDEO JUSTIN!!! Also… nice new logo! 😉
Thanks again, everybody!
Andy – haha Thanks again, man.
