I came up with the concept, directed, shot, and edited this bad boy.
Additional shots by Dario Rezk.
Original music by Danny Way. <- How cool is that?
Network A wanted to use a new interactive video player and incorporate skateboarding. Plan B was the team of choice and I was approached to direct. I came up with this concept and the rest is history. Have fun playing with our half skate video, half video game thingy.
This was my intro to the acting world and I nailed it. If I would have stayed on track, I’d probably be on the set of Fast & Furious 6 or something. I’m stoked to be in the video for a song rad enough that Wade Speyer skated to it. If you’re having trouble recognizing me, I’m the quarterback fetus with the giant head.
I will be quoting Pete Weber today, tomorrow, and everyday there after.
Yes! God damn it, yes!
That is why I did it! I… number 5! Are you kidding me!? That’s right!
Who do you think you are!? I am!
Damn it, right!
Sheckler Sessions has landed!
I’ve been wanting a talented artist to draw me a picture of a pig using a giant piece of bacon to fight a chicken yielding a giant hot wing. Luckily, Eric McHenry hooked it up. Can’t wait to frame this original and hang it on the wall.
Erica and I are going to go do our best Dumb and Dumber impression in Aspen. I make commercial.
Filmed this crud with my dude, PJ Ladd, last weekend. Looking forward to seeing what he can do in more than just a day. Stay tuned.
Brad Staba, the stone-cold psychopath behind Skate Mental, forced me to roll up and play Director of Photography for this fucked up Shane O’Neill commercial that played during Street League Finals. It’s probably the best commercial in the planets. Directed by crabsalad.
Mahalo to Plan B, T&C, Nick, Lance and everyone who made this trip so fun.
On the last day of the best trip ever in Oahu, Sarah and I walked down to the sand in front of the Loulu Estate at 8:45am and whipped up this little diddy first try.
Thanks to everyone who made this trip possible. It was a blast from end to end for 1,000 different reasons.
I’ve wanted to nail a watch to this sign in my alley for about a year. Nailed it.
I’m a huge Brandon Biebel fan. I’m psyched every time I get to film something with him, so I said “hell yeah” when Transworld called. I’d say this is a pretty accurate snapshot of a normal day with Brandon.
I had probably the most embarrassing failed actor career possible. Some of the movies and commercials I had to do were pretty embarrassing but this one takes the cake! A rollerblader!? Worst role I could get.
Throughout the audition process everything said “skate” not rollerblade. Even at the audition the director said, “So you can skate right?” It wasn’t until they asked me to bring my rollerblades to a test shoot that we realized the miscommunication. I borrowed a friends that were 6 sizes too small and tried. I sucked. A guy at the advertising agency even said, “This guy can’t rollerblade!” and walked back inside angrily. Icing on the cake? They buzzed my head and I looked like a 14 year old for awhile. I was a 21 year old skateboarder who looked like a 14 year old rollerblader on national television. Rad. The clip cuts to a real rollerblader eating shit. I just had to do the mad dash.
And for the record, I do not regret any of it. I learned a lot and it paid real well. Now, let’s all have a little laugh at my expense.
