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.
This video got me hyped on skateboarding in general. It’s a Ty Evans film, no-brainer! Active team riders Chase Webb, Clint Walker, David Loy, Jamie Thomas, & Jordan Maxham were all featured in it along with many other amazing skateboarders. Paul Rodriguez was the narrator, it’s all skateboarding! If I were a film critic, I would give this 5 thumbs up! S/O to Mountain Dew & Brainfarm. Enough with the text, here are photos from the world premier at the Ace Hotel Theater in DTLA, also it’s now out on iTunes!
After a life threatening motorcycle accident and pending medical bills. Active team rider and skatebaording hero, Mike Franklin needed help. Help arrived with a fundraiser/contest at the Santa Clarita Skate Park. Fitting since Mike had spend lots of time helping design that park and many more hours handling big tricks on a regular basis.
