We’ve been around cameras for a long time now. As kids, we would spend most of our free time filming our mountain bike adventures. The moment we got home we would upload the footage and begin creating our next masterpiece, eager to show the world. Back then it was about having fun, creating cool videos, going on adventures, and not taking ourselves too seriously. Not much has changed.
We started IFHT back in the winter of 2009. The cold and wet weather had sidelined our outdoor activities, so with a borrowed HD camcorder we decided to film a silly video and post it on Facebook. The response was good enough that we decided to make another, and another, and then over a hundred more. During that time we created two YouTube channels, developed a fanbase, refined our technique, and never stopped having fun.
Almost a decade later we still continue to produce high quality comedy videos for 300,000+ fans to watch and enjoy. IFHT is best known for its mountain bike content, “How to be” series, music videos, and unique comedy sketches. Join us in our passion for filmmaking, the outdoors, extreme sports, and the undeniable comedy in everyday life.
Matt's passion for filmmaking started at a young age, making mountain biking videos. Like a samurai warrior, Matt wields the lense like a mighty katana, eviscerating the competition with deadly discipline. The only thing Matt does better than making films is busting gnarly tail-whips on his razor scooter.
From writing, to producing, to acting, Jason wears many hats at IFHT. His passion for creativity and the outdoors was spurred on at a young age through filming mountain biking. In 2017 Jason gave up the corporate 9-5 life in order to join IFHT full time and make people laugh for a living. In his spare time you can find him out on his mountain bike or at a local micro brewery pretending he knows a lot about beer.
In high school a classmate once called him “the most distracting person I’ve ever met” and multiple teachers dubbed him “a classic underachiever.” Little did they know he’d go on to make dozens of people smirk on his rocket ride to the top after co-founding the YouTube channel Hoodwinked Films in 2010. David and his partner Mike went on to create several successful videos in the years that followed. In 2016, after months of desperate pleads from Matt and Jason, David reluctantly decided to join IFHT, and he’s been distracting the boys ever since – this time with his handsomeness.
According to Mike’s mom, ever since he was very little, people would to come up to her and ask “What’s with this kid?“. Mike likes to think that some of those people are still watching him on their computer screens today, saying the very same thing. Over the years, Mike’s appetite for creative expression through comedy and music has manifested itself in many ways. Soon after co-founding Hoodwinked Films with David they connected with IFHT, collaborating on several videos and finally joining forces in 2016. When he’s not writing, or on set, you can find Mike arguing with teenagers on internet hip-hop forums.
