I worked as one of the follow cams on this iconic event for Red Bull at the Royal Albert Hall (yes that’s me in the black in the bg).
Quiksilver hired me to edit and cover post production for 2 tour films of their UK skate team in Brazil, featuring Ross McGouran, Sam Bosworth, Pete King and Dan McDermott. Got some Amazing footage to go through thanks to Octavio Netto & James Stentiford.
It's not easy as a young person to engage with politics, so the last thing you'd expect to hear at your local skatepark is some high brow political debate.
Jenkem Magazine followed up on our Vice film with this Interview with Director Tim Crawley and Paul himself.
A while ago I filmed this little profile piece on British Skateboarding legend Ally Barr.
Yoga stretches, kid pics, balanced diets and injuries on rotation. In your late 30's and early 40's skate trips aren't quite the same as they used to be.
There was a time when if you wanted to watch a certain skate video that you didn’t physically own then had to get a lift from your mum to grab it or watch it at a mates house. No sitting on your arse and clicking the video onto your screen. You had to go get it up and go get a copy or watch it as a group with your mates which rarely happens these days. Donut Duty was the first skate video I ever saw, shortly after that it was Trilogy. Donut Duty was out in 1995 so I would have most likely watched it when I was fifteen. I remember the skaters pretending to be cops and together with some good hip hop it had its fair share of punk music.
Skateboarding was still pretty underground which made it even more appealing as a teenager. This video definitely fueled some of my early skateboarding and also gave us a few ideas on making some stupid skits to put in our own skate videos. Anyway you don’t need a lift to your mates house to watch this. Thanks to technology you can watch it here.
My first commission as Director for Vice is about as heartfelt and close to home as you can get.
Today was Brian Anderson's Day. It's the day he chose to go on camera and talk about being a gay professional skateboarder.
