a year in the making.
a year in the making.
What was supposed to be a simple video turned into this.
Rudy was in town and had an idea of him just skating around everywhere leading up to this one spot. We never had time to shoot the last spot so I edited into a video of him pushing all around town. The idea was to just capture the feeling of "enjoying the ride".
Rudy thought it fit well with his footage he had been shooting for the past couple of months so he said to make into a quick video part.
I don't get my hands on skate footage too much, so I got carried away and opted for a transworld 16mm type feel.
wrapped up the edit on street symphony's " masters of rap "
Returning the golden age of Hip Hop shooting in urban landscapes throughout
new video in the works.
in the works...
kicking off summer with Andrew Pfeifer.
working with Aubrey because he is always up for trying something new
or experimental. Being with limited resources has us trying to be creative
as we can, so we used the projector at the shop.
the format for our new project http://keepelpasoloco.org/
sometimes we need extra help at the shop.
It was a struggle to wrangle up all the members for a good day of shooting
We had several ideas but a cowboy theme was the one that the band seemed most excited about.
The idea was to be as light hearted as possible in the video ,
the heaviness of their music to juxtaposed by the calming old western storyline.
Edited video flyer of an event we were a part of
Tour de funn was a night of stops to see several bands at different venues, proper being one of them.
Farsh and JJ shot the footage, I edited.

Late Nite Social Club
Joe of Late Nite Social Club came to our shop with an old buddy James to talk
about doing something together.
We love working with local people, especially ones who share our frustation in dealing with El Paso's divided "support".
This was steve's first time using the camera and he did well.
this was originally test footage for a longer, more elaborate short.
Going over it, the footage looked like it was enough for a short so we made this.
Stephen had been playing this song over and over so naturally it made the video.
This time our friend Gil checked in this weekend on his trip to El Paso.
follow the captain on his adventures here.
we've been working on a new project that will highlight interesting people and changemakers
in our city. We come across these people everyday in our business.
Each person has a unique story that is inspiring and needs to be told.
To get a feel for this project, I decided to start with my mother.
A person whom I admire.
I've known rudy for many years now and watched his progression with skateboarding. I didn't see him for a good year or so. After spending time with him recently, I learned it was for skateboarding.
He moved about a year ago to pursue his dream in LA. Just a short time over there and he has already progressed to the point where he just jumps on rails without warming up.
I can't seem to grow facial hair so stephen though he would help out.
Alan lives right across the border in Juarez MX. We chose to sponsor this kid because he rips and every time he crosses the bridge to skate it's a mission. This kid has been winning contests in mexico and trying to get a little exposure here in the U.S. . There is sure to be more great footage from Alan in the future.
A special thanks to Frank for picking him up at the bridge , driving to Juarez, and teaching him bad words.

Jumping from a skateboard shop to Proper really pushed us to be more productive.
We just opened in October and it's been a fun crazy ride.
I threw together a rough 30 second clip of our recent months with Proper.
Here's a check up with our boy Kevin living out in Hollywood.
He was in town for the holidays and knocked this out in half an hour.

Talking to Aubrey about our next project was one that fell into place real well.
The video was originally supposed to be a standard romantic one, but after listening to over again, with the input of others, we got a more of a dark tone to it. So we ran with it and utilized the resources we had since we were on almost no budget.
The video was to tell a story of love and how much a person will do for it.
Thanks to Aubrey, Jennifer, Jessica, Nebe, E-jay, Barron, Eddie, Jesus Olivas, Steve, J.J.
our friend from mexico,
we had 15 minutes to shoot and this is what we got.
