I’m a big fan of Danny MacAskill (often referring to him as Danny MaKick-Ass Skills), and love posting when he has a new project. Still sponsored by Red Bull, they produced a new film called Imaginate. “Two years in the making, street trials rider Danny MacAskill releases his brand new riding film. Whilst previous projects have focused on locations and journeys, MacAskill’s Imaginate sees Danny take a completely different approach to riding. Enter Danny’s mind and enjoy.”

Getting off the street and into a studio, the film is a pretty cool play on scale, using life-sized toys. Danny, himself, is a toy that rides through a course made of enlarged wooden building blocks, pencils, playing cards and game pieces. Unlike his other films, where the screen just is filled with bike trials eye candy, this film has a bit of narrative to it – putting his riding into the context of a story.

The stunts, as usual, will blow you away. Click here to see the film.
