1. How the co-operation between you and Quinn went? Is it different to shoot with such gear and all that background preparation before each clip?
Filming with Quinn was cool overall. I have been friends with, and skated with Quinn for many years now, so Quinn knows my skating and what tricks I am capable of. A lot of the tricks I was super lazy/unsure of attempting. He would motivate me when needed to try them, so sometimes it helped in getting shit done I wouldn’t normally try. It can be annoying sometimes having to wait to set-up so much equipment just for one clip. A lot of times when I try a dangerous trick I just like to try it right away, commit 100% so I don’t have to keep trying it several times and end up dying. Haha. I don’t like waiting. Also, I had a lot of the tricks planned out beforehand. I would try to get juiced mentally to do a tricks in the car ride to the spot.

Also, the top mistrial it was getting dark so I was stressing on filming it as quick as possible. It’s also more pressure having a lot of set-up you feel like you have to lace your tricks I guess, so you don’t waste everyones time hah! Continue reading
