The film will be directed by Ascent Cinema’s Ben Collins with Graeme Howe as the assistant director. It will be shot over the course of Summer 2017 and edited over the winter for a Live premiere in May of 2018. Original artwork will be done by Owen Clancy.
Today, May 27, 2017, was our first official day of production as we were shooting in Marshfield Skate Park. We have already put countless hours of planning into the film with hundreds and hundreds of more hours to come in the next year as we realize our dream! We will have extensive behind the scenes content coming from the film as well so keep your eyes peeled and stay tuned by connecting with us on social media and singing up for our newsletter!
This April I travelled with my family down to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina for a family vacation. Not wanting to pass up an opportunity, I brought down some of my camera equipment with me.
I packed relatively light for this trip. I brought my Sony a6000 with me so that I could easily shoot photos and videos without having to use two cameras. The lenses I used with the camera (in order of the most frequency) were the Sony 16-50mm f3.5-5.6, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 70-210mm f4 E-Series and the Tokina 12-24mm f4.
