Tony Trujillo – Vans 50th Anniversary

“Mic-E Reyes was good, he kind of took care of me when everyone else was going nuts and I’m fourteen years old just watching all this shit go down.”

Eric Koston Interview

“I came up during the era of nobody really giving a fuck about what you did beyond what was filmed and seen on videos. Now you have got to be considerate of who is seeing all aspects of what you do as a public figure. You’ve got to remember that there are kids who look up to you. You have to think about that, there’s a responsibility there. “

Dunks & The Last Days of Love with Ishod Wair

“Ten years ago they said it was the last years but then ten more years happened. But the property underneath Love, the parking garage, somehow that space got sold and the fountain is leaking into it so they have to redo the parking garage – apparently that’s what has made this version of Love being torn down ‘real’. But it’s a good opportunity to redo the park and “Get rid of all the pesky skateboarders.””

Myles Rushforth ‘Hometown’ Interview

“I couldn’t care less about ‘making it’ in skateboarding. We’ve all seen that example of what can happen to a British pro; they get to twenty-six/twenty-seven, they peak and then they get distribution sponsors until they’re about thirty-three and then have to enter reality.”

Through And Through – JT Aultz

“I like how everyone is in there at different places, as we do skate together a lot and I think it really shows that. One-off videos are cool too but you lose a lot of the company/team family feel that was so cool about the older VHS videos.”

Through And Through – Robbie Brockel

“I think my dad just wanted to be involved in what I was doing. He loved sports and watching my brother and I play and coached us. I also think my parents were worried skateboarding would lead to me getting into trouble. All in all, over time they supported it 100% because they knew how much I loved doing it.”

Through And Through – Jeremy McNamara

The thought of heading out into the great unknown on missions with some of the skateboarding’s modern greats would be a daunting prospect for any filmer new to the experience. Add to that the multiple responsibilities of being the person with all the spots, getting the talent to said spots and then being in charge of encouraging said talent to perform, whilst simultaneously dealing with the actual filming side of things, and the life of a modern skate filmer suddenly starts to sound pretty daunting.

Talking to Tilt-Moders: Louie Barletta & Chris Avery

“It goes back to ‘if you can’t laugh at yourself’ – then what are you even doing? It’s life and you only have one shot at life. You can be fucking serious as shit or silly as fuck and in the end you still just die. So why not take the awesome route and have fun with it?”
