Following after the PUSH premier, I remembered there was another event going on down the street at Paper Agency Gallery in Los Angeles. I looked on my instagram and there you have it, a Crailtap group photo exhibition with some, if not all, of my favorite photographers/documenters in skateboarding. Featuring: Aaron Meza, Andy Mueller, Ben Colen, Eric Anthony, Jerry Hsu, & Sam Smyth. Peep the flicks from the night.
Two nights in a row at the Ace Hotel Theater in Downtown L.A. This time for the Berric’s Push premier. It featured 8 parts: Luan Oliveira, Ben Raybourn, Josh Matthews, Cody Cepeda, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Trevor Colden, & Aaron “Jaws” Homoki. Each skateboarder had an introduction short-film before an actual video part filmed in 6 months with different filmers. The result is this. Here are photos from the premier that night and be sure to watch the series on The Berrics.
We headed up on our way to Fresno aka FresYES aka FresGNAR for the grand opening of the new spot. Active Fresno is the farthest up north but technically Central California. We come in peace!
