1.2 Project: A Year on Film
The 1.2 Project represents a year-long challenge that filmer Satchel Cronk and rider Leah Lind-White set out to achieve in 2022. Each month they’d create a unique perspective on mountain biking. Whether it was night riding, the joy of bike maintenance, riding through reforestation, or a great ride turned into a crash, each month brought a new topic. Leah’s effortless style on her bike and Satchel’s unique filming and editing style made this project one of the most unique we’ve come across in a long time. 12 months. 12 perspectives. This is 1.2.
