Builder - Pinkbike World Premiere
Building a trail is both an art and a science. The best ones are aesthetic wonders, a stark line of dirt snaking through the most scenic bits of land, a mountain biker's landscape painting brought to life. Unfortunately there's no specific formula for trail building - it takes years to master the alchemy of crafting flow. From your first shaky pedal strokes to the game-changing moves of the sport's top pros, our sport is shaped by shovels and pick axes in endless pursuit of the perfect ride. Builder tells the story of trail building, through the eyes of some of our sport's best riders and most respected builders.
Through a series of carefully crafted segments, Builder will explore the art of trail building and how it impacts the sport of mountain biking and the lives of those who ride. The film will synthesize the experiences of many into a narrative that looks to expose the soul of mountain biking - why do we dig? From the youngest groms daydreaming of dirt glory, to the professional builders and sponsored riders who have the means to create it, Builder will tell the story of how built lines come into existence and more importantly, why they matter.

Scott Secco is a full time filmmaker (and part time trail builder) from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. He has interned for Aaron LaRocque and Sherpas Cinema, and thanks them for teaching him everything he knows. He’s stoked on good light, fresh cedar, and carrying heavy camera bags up mountains; his favourite movie is Life Cycles. Builder is his first feature film.
