Patrick Evans Story by Henry West.
A collaborative canvas forged in freedom, fueled by friendship.
In the sun-drenched expanse of Southern California, two kindred spirits have united to capture the essence of freestyle motocross: Henry West, an industry-leading Creative Director and Patrick Evans, a rising star in the freeride scene.
Their brainchild, HVNGRY GHOST, is more than just a film; it is a testament to the power of passion, dedication, and the boundless creativity that defines freestyle motocross. Patrick, is a force of nature on two wheels. After experiencing burnout in the regimented world of racing, he discovered the liberating freedom of freeriding. His talent is undeniable, evident in the awards that adorn his mantelpiece. But it is his spirit that truly shines – a blend of modesty, determination, and an infectious love for the sport.
Henry, a renowned director in the creative industry, has honed his skills filming some of the most influential figures of the century for sportswear giant Adidas and more recently VonZipper. His true calling lies in extreme sports, where he finds a raw authenticity that resonates deep within his soul. The same captivating visual storytelling that earned Henry international acclaim for campaigns featuring penguins in Antarctica shines through again in HVNGRY GHOST, showcasing the artistry and spirit of freestyle motocross.
HVNGRY GHOST is a visceral journey into Patrick's world. We witness his relentless pursuit of self-expression, captured in Henry's masterful lens. The film takes us on a thrilling ride, from the adrenaline-pumping run-up to the X-games, where Patrick defies expectations with a stunning 5th place finish in quarterpipe high air and an even more impressive 4th in best whip.
But HVNGRY GHOST is more than just competition. It's a love letter to the camaraderie of the freeride community. We see Patrick ripping alongside icons like Tyler Bereman, Colby Raha, and Axell Hodges, their bikes dancing in perfect unison against the backdrop of iconic locations like Rahville, Metal Mulisha, and the legendary Wyvern Ranch; where the film reaches its golden hour pinnacle. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting long shadows across the dusty landscape, Patrick takes flight, his bike transforming into an extension of his very being. It's a moment of pure poetry, a testament to the beauty and grace that can be found in the most extreme of sports.
"For me it's just all about self expression," says Patrick. "I don't really care if I'm better than somebody, beating someone doesn't make me happy... I just want to present my thoughts and feelings."
