GO, billed as the ultimate adventure film series that aims to immerse viewers into the globe-traversing life of BMX icon Nigel Sylvester, let loose a four-minute "super trailer" showing off some of Nigel’s personal favorite scenes on Friday.
Nigel created the series with Harrison Boyce, who also serves as director of the project. Danielle Salzedo, meanwhile, shares producer duties with Nigel. Peep the trailer below:
The GO series has seen Nigel and company documenting their experiences in Miami, London, Paris, Dubai, Tokyo, and more over the past several years. Each entry has amassed millions of views. In a Q&A session accompanying the new release of the series' "super trailer," Nigel confirmed that he and Harrison have plans to resume their filmed travels once COVID-19 containment efforts subside.
Below, catch a selection of shots shared by the GO team looking back on their travels thus far, as well as the full Q&A which also sees Nigel detailing how he's been spending his social distancing days.
How long have you been filming the GO series, and when did you begin production?
The GO film series was created during the summer of 2015. Thus far, we've filmed installments in New York City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Dubai, London, Paris, and Miami - with more to come once we can travel again. To date, the series has amassed over 75 million views.
What made you want to make GO?
We (Harrison Boyce, the director of the series, and myself) wanted to create a film series where we authentically immerse the audience and community into my everyday adventures. It is a visual experience that's entertaining, keeps you on the edge of your seat, it's also informative and motivational. Sharing the feeling of what it's like to ride a bicycle up 3rd Ave in the opposite direction of traffic with my crew of riders, skydiving out a plane in Dubai with my bike into the desert, or racing go-karts around the streets of Tokyo wearing cartoon costumes, are just a few of the adventures people can experience thru GO. I find joy in sharing moments like these with people around the globe.
Why did you think now was a good time to release this GO super trailer?
The GO series and brand has grown and matured tremendously over the past few years; it is now a global movement. People from across the globe love the films, and I genuinely appreciate the support. I feel the series offers an extraordinary perspective of the world in such a unique visual format. Seeing that we're in a time where traveling is at a standstill, this super trailer can be a refreshing escape for people at home looking for exciting and innovative content—a way to see the world from your couch.
How are you handling this quarantine? Where are you now?
I'm handling it like most people in the world, staying home, playing XBox, I've cooked more in the past month than I have in my entire life total. I am just taking it day by day. I want to send positive vibes and thoughts to all the essential workers and emergency relief crews around the world. I salute you all.
