THE LATEST PURE DRIFTING DVD REVIEWS

The Pure Drifting DVD continues to receive rave reviews from various websites. Look for upcoming reviews in most of the import tuning magazines.

The Pure Drifting review on Driftcentral.com states, "...I believe that the DVD covered everything that I learned in my first year in the drift community in about an hour and had I owned this DVD from the get-go, it would have saved me a lot of trouble."

From the Drift411.com review, "The editing and content in this project is top notch. The producers did their homework and put out a product that is a must have for the veteran and novice drifter alike"

BIG LITTLE FILMS AT D1 GRAND PRIX

Saturday, February 28th marked the opening of the 2004 D1 Grand Prix Drifting series at Irwindale Speedway and the public premier of Big Little Films new DVD "Pure Drifting". With more than 10,000 rabid drifting fans in attendance, the crowds at the Pure Drifting booth were huge and hundreds of D1 fans had a chance to check out and buy Pure Drifting DVDs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, decals and posters. Pictured above is Pure Drifting Executive Producer Rich Nakajima with famous D1 celebrity Eiji "Tarzan" Yamada as well as images of the Pure Drifting booth.

The car at the top right side is the Kei Office S-15 that was driven to victory at this event by Yasuyuki Kazama. It just so happens that the Pure Drifting DVD features exclusive on-car footage from a private D1 practice event with Kazama driving this same car (it was painted blue last year) that was shot a few days before last Augusts D1 event at Irwindale so you can check out Kazama's moves as he practiced. When all was said and done, this was an amazing day and an awesome spectacle.

BIG LITTLE FILMS AT DRIFT DAY 13

Saturday, February 21st turned out to be a rare, rainy Southern California day. Drift events with rain are unusual for Southern California drifters, but the rain actually made the day much more interesting. There were several D1 cars and drivers out practicing for next Saturday's kickoff to the 2004 D1 Grand Prix season opener at Irwindale Speedway. Saturday also marked an appearance of the new all female drift team, "Drifting Pretty", founded by Drift Association instructors and Pure Drifting interviewees Nadine Toyoda and Yoshie Shuyama. The rain somewhat spoiled the planned Toyota 20th Anniversary car show. There were plenty of nice, older and rare Toyota's present, but not too many owners showing them off due to the wet conditions.

Big Little Films was prepping for our booth display at this event for next Saturday's D1 event as well as shooting video for a future project. We were joined by a New York production team that was shooting a story for a show for Spike TV. Special thanks to Naoki Kobayashi and Moto Miwa of Drift Association for putting on an awsome event and thanks to Nadine Toyoda/Yoshie Shuyama and all of the women of the Drifting Pretty womens drifting team for letting us hang with them.

BIG LITTLE FILMS SHOOTS MID-WEEK SPEEDTRIAL USA EVENT

This
rare mid-week SpeedTrial USA event at Streets of Willow provided the hottest road racing as the event sold out. With a wide variety of cars running including everything from several Porsche 911 Turbos and a race ready Ferarri 360 to Honda CRX's, there was plenty of hot, wheel to wheel action to shoot. The latest trend seemed to be tricked Scion XB's taking to the track for racing. www.BBist.com and other Scion XB clubs were in attendance and all over the track. The Scion XB seems to be the next big car movement, now if they can just do a rear wheel drive conversion so they can be Drifted!
