We're mid way through a Vans video myself and Perris Benegas are going in on and we decided to get a San Diego trip in where the crew stayed at my house. Blake came out with us for a few days to show behind the scenes of what making a video part looks like.

Doorstep is an independent project filmed and edited by Zach Krejams and Jeff Zielinski and features their local crew of homies from Long Beach, California, and beyond. The premise of the video was simple… the streets are at your Doorstep—so naturally the video was shot almost entirely in the LB / LA area. Filmed over a span of four years, Doorstep features full sections from a unique cast of riders who all have varying BMX industry backgrounds including Aaron Bostrom, Ben Ward, Garrett Reeves, Jeff Zielinski, Ryan Fudger, and Zach Krejmas.
