Yoyo, back again. How was Like? Heard good things.

Just got back from Berlin a few days back on a full on Drawing Boards film mission, trying to get the last few things for this vid. Expect a Brighton premier date to be announced some time in the near future. Resident photog Richard West was present to shoot some loverly snaps as well so hopefully they'll surface in some decent form of media as well. Article anyone?

Looks like Winter's finally kicked in. What you gonna do to get through it? I'm sure plenty of stuff will arise. For now, check out Matt Ransom and his Lovenskate cronies fucking about on some random island...

...look through a bunch of old and new Stevie Thompson related wizardry...


...and watch me, Ollie Smith and Simon Brooks ballbagging Will Greenfield

Ed Likes Questioning

The 'Like' video premier is just 3 days away now. If you don't know, you're an idiot. 
I threw a few quick questions at creator Ed Hubert, and he threw a few very quick answers back. Track him down or run into Push as soon as you can if you still haven't got a ticket.

What can we expect with this video?
Something funny.

Did you go about anything differently compared to LA?
I said from the start that the next vid was going to be something different, I just didn't know in what way until about halfway through making it. I've been a lot more picky with the standard of tricks this time around too, if someone asks to film something and I think its shit I'll usually just say no. Maybe that's just me getting lazier.

How did you fit it in around uni?
Got a young persons railcard.

Where have you been to film this?
Mostly Brighton and surrounding places but we have strayed a little further at times to Paris, Berlin, London, MK etc

Why the Facebook theme?
Cos everyone's on it. Everyone moans about it and slags it off all the time and yet they spend all their time on it. I bet as people are reading this interview now they have Facebook open in another tab or have just clicked off it. I basically went for the lamest theme I could think of.

What's the deal with Dave Benson Phillips?
He's the Tom Penny of children's TV so who better to present a skateboard movie?

Any other surprising cameos?
Wouldn't be a surprise then.

Has it been hard filming in Brighton, considering it's now so rinsed out, and spots are getting fewer and fewer?
Nah its fine, we've just been filming ABDs, who cares?

Any filming nightmares?
VX broke last week.

What happened?
One of the 3CCD's died which made the colours go all yellow, its happened before and i blagged sony to fix it for free but i dont think i could pull that off again.

How's this last week of filming been going?
Great! Every day's great for the like video!

When can we expect the DVD?
Early October... maybe

What happened to Leon?
Last I heard he was running a successful mini cab tycoon up in Manchester. Good luck to him.

TMFL (Too many full lengths)

Big up to everyone that came along for the 10,000 Stones premier Friday. Real good turnout and a rad atmosphere.
Even bigger ups to everyone that pulled through with some sick skating in it, and to Jackson and Jon for living up to the hype with an amazing video.
If you missed it this time, make sure to grab it in whatever format it turns up in in the near future. Plenty of hammers, big stair manoeuvres and surprises to keep the crowd wooing every few seconds, as well as a few serious jaw droppers and spot one uppers.

More on that when the video surfaces to the public, but in the mean time have a look at one of the next things coming up - the trailer for Jack Jeffery's sequence to his last film, cleverly entitled B2N. This one quite rightly went down well when it was shown on Friday.

Also, as the premier for the Like video draws nearer, check back in day or two for a little interview with it's creator Ed.

Remember, get your ass down to BYC tomorrow night for the 10,000 Stones premier. 9:30 start.

Some throwaway footage of two of the stars, Seb Hallet and Laurie Kelly. Hype ting.
