99 Bikes NZ
I wanted to touch base with you.
99Bikes already uses content from 3 bike brands I work with (Apollo/Neo, and Wattwheels.
This page is an expression of interest in working with you on Summer content as your website mentions cycling, boating, jet skiing, golfing, running and paddle boarding as compatible with the Retro Blades.
We want to work with you on summertime photo and video content with a focus on mountain biking and road cycling.
We found you through our winter skiing at Mt Dobson.
WHO WE ARE
"BIKES ARE WHO WE ARE"
At our core, Extremekid Productions is all about bikes. Its our passion; from exploring our local trails to shooting riders overseas, we love bikes and we love getting more people on bikes.
Our Director, Dylan Gerschwitz, studied Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design with the aim of becoming a frame/accessory designer before being distracted by film making and photography.
With experience shooting around New Zealand and Australia and 10 years in bike shops we bring a brilliant combination of customer/market knowledge and content creation skills to this project.

PROJECTS WE ARE PROUD OF
This bikepacking film brings you along for a ride on the stunning Kōpiko Aotearoa, an 1,100-kilometer route across New Zealand’s North Island. See the wonderful sights, meet the locals, and share in the physical and mental challenges of this bikepacking adventure.
EV CAR REVEAL
Partnering with MA Media we filmed at a combination of locations around Highlands Raceway in Cromwell. The video is the international release film for the new electric rally car developed by Hayden Paddon and currently has over 1 million views across all platforms.
A short promo video for a local mountain biker. He was looking for a showreel of his riding he could use for sponsorship applications.
SOUTH ISLAND CHAMPS
We assisted the local mountain bike club with promoting the South Island Championship race location with a short video.
679 RACE PROMO
A short video to promote the often overlooked 679 race at Mount Hutt to riders in the Christchurch area.
The latest in our ongoing product series for Wattwheels. These videos have both a camera operator and remote controller to enable 3D camera moves to keep the viewer engaged.
Burkes Metalworks wanted to showcase the 'old school' skill of their panel beaters and their capabilities as a custom car building workshop.
'Make paper sexy' was the job description from the company CEO. A week later of filming in their Brisbane based factory and we think we came up with something 'sexy'.
APOLLO TRACE AND TRANSFER
Melbourne based Apollo bikes wanted to promote their new Trace and Transfer range on Facebook and their website. After a flight to Melbourne our team got to work on shooting this video throughout the busy Melbourne CBD.
MAKING TRAX SERIES
Filmed on the fly with no planning or control over the situation, this project was all about promoting inclusive tourism in New Zealand.
We utilized all our skills at moving fast and building a film on the fly while also working around the tourism operators during their normal operations.
We also shared a lot of this footage with ABC National News in Australia to be part of a piece on Making Trax and inclusive Tourism.
SPOKE MAGAZINE PHOTOS
Spoke Magazine is considered to be the pinnacle of mountain bike photography in New Zealand. We have had images published in the 'Gallery' section. See the third image down at the link to the right.
