Revolution One

To: The Unicyclist Community
From: Dan Heaton
Subject: “Revolution One” Release
Date: 10/18/2013

I would like to announce the release of “Revolution One: A Story of Off-road Unicycling”. While this film was finished in 2010 and slated to be released on DVD soon after, it ran into some complications and I struggled with being able to release it fully. However, it made the rounds on the film festival circuit, winning multiple awards and going on world tour with the Banff International Mountain Film Festival. The film officially premiered on September 5th., 2009 and was also shown at the Vancouver MUni Weekend in 2010.

With the rapid progression of the sport, I knew the riding in the film would quickly become outdated. However, the story that it tells and the historical footage/photos compiled within are invaluable to our sport. While this film is just a piece of the history of off-road unicycling, I feel the riders in this film have played incredibly important roles in the evolution of our sport. I want to especially thank all the riders who were involved in the making of this film, as it wouldn’t have been possible without the time, support, and hospitality that they gave me. It truly has been amazing being part of unicycling as both a rider and filmmaker over the last 17 years.

The film is available on Vimeo for download and streaming, absolutely FREE. As with many small-scale, independent productions, this film was created on my own time, with my own funds. If you enjoy the film, there is a “Tip Jar” option on Vimeo if anyone would like to help support the costs of making the film. Enjoy!

Thank you,
-Dan Heaton

PS: The film is rated “Mature” on Vimeo. This is due to a couple swear words in the film and one bare butt, though the overall content is pretty mild. If anyone would like a clean version, let me know and I will see what I can do.

Dan - thanks a lot for releasing this. Besides the great riding and film quality, these films are an invaluable record of some of the history of our sport.

Woah! VERY slick, well-put-together piece! Thanks very much. More than happy to hit the jar, and encourage others to do the same. Astonishing that it was released for free!

Epic Dan! Thanks so much for letting people download it. For anyone that has watched it and forgot to tip, please help support it by donating a good donation ($10-20) via the tip jar. Don't know how much time or money he spent creating this but I'm sure it's a lot more than you think. Time to show it to my wife, roommates and friends....

I wish I could have seen something like this fifty years ago! I only started a couple of years ago and at 63 years of age, the body is still willing, but the mind keeps saying "Are you crazy, you are going to kill yourself!" Stuff like this makes me want to continue though, so keep it up.

Amazing video Dan, thank you.

I remember when R1 was first announced, and really glad to see it come to fruition. Brings me back to when I first got into unicycling back in 2005. My friend showed me Universe 2 and Defect, and I was hooked. Great memories.

I really liked the storytelling aspect of R1. It's a well-produced video showcasing some awesome riding footage like its predecessors, but has that educational element on the history of unicycling from the ground up. I learnt some new things about the development of the sport that previous articles didn't articulate so clearly at times. Being able to put a face to a pioneering name, listening to them, and seeing the context of where and when things happened are inspiring.

A lot of respect to those who paved the way for the sport.
