#105 Stu Thomson

Stu Thomson is the founder and director of what is now know as Cut Media. You may be familiar with the name Cut media as the creators of some of the most iconic/viral mountain bike films of all time including Danny Macaskill's The Ridge, Imaginate, Wee Day Out and also the recent Focus Bikes Designed For Down campaign plus lots more.

During this episode we take a deep dive into Stu’s history within mountain biking and how it all started with racing downhiill under ‘The Clan’ team umbrella that his Dad started to help out fellow Scottish racers, onto racing world cups for Steve Peat's Royal Racing team and how he got involved with marketing, film making and the evolution of Cut Media. It was really interesting to hear about how he first met Danny Macaskill and some of the behind the scenes info from the Imaginate shoot. Stu shares a pretty wild story about a missing hard drive which is every content creators worst nightmare! We also discuss the role VR could play in mountain biking, how the Santa Cruz 5010 finger bike edit was born and what the future holds for action sports content creation plus much more...
