Red Bull and I Talk True

Like the world hasn’t heard enough of me talking!  Red Bull Skate asks the questions everyone has been asking about Plan B True and I answer them all very seriously here.

I FORGOT TO UPDATE MY SITE…

I forgot to update my site, for 8 months. I’ll do it tomorrow.

Tech

Red Bull Daily Grind

I directed/wrote/edited/shot this funky cold medina with my boy, Ricki Bedenbaugh, shooting right beside me. I came on board as the set was already being built and then, yeah, did the damn thing. Defy hooked it up with an epic stabilizer. Check them out and don’t watch this behind-the-scenes piece that I’m terribly embarrassed by.

Sony FS700 4K Interview

I did a little write up for Sony on their insane 4K upgrade for the NEX-FS700. It’s on their blog if you want to click here and listen with your eyes to me talk about cameras for awhile. There are some rad photos too.  Big thanks to Sony, SmallHD, and Cinevate for coming through with some gear.

Oakley in OZ

Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg, Ryan Sheckler, Curren Caples

I was fortunate enough to capture the souls of Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg, Ryan Sheckler, and Curren Caples in one of my favorite places on the planet, Australia. Kirk Dianda, Tim Irwin, and I headed to Oz with Oakley with 3 Red Epics and tried to capture some awesome for you blood-thirsty savages.

They did a rad job on the site and to properly appreciate the experience, I recommend viewing the feature here:

FEAR AND LOATHING IN AUSTRALIA

Currently Trippin’ in Brazil

Waterfalling a Brazilian beer standing on top of the largest waterfall in the world.  Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil is breathtaking.  You just have to see it to believe it.  Insane.  Felipe Gustavo and I went to his hometown and the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, after Foz.  I never ate so much in my life.  That dude is going to be 600 pounds someday.  I’ll probably be sitting next to him, at 700 pounds.  The food tour was awesome and the skating was the same as it ever was.  Almost got attacked by wild monkeys too.

ESPN Pro Series with Ryan Sheckler

Hyped on my new relationship with ESPN. I’ll be pumping out 10 Pro Series videos with Ryan Sheckler this year. Stay tuned. Shot on Red Epic. Additional footage provided by Kirk Dianda and Tim Irwin from Oakley In Oz.

Currently Trippin’ in China… again

I’ve grown fond of this place!  It’s my third time here.  Cafe Xperience gave me own menu item and I had no idea.  Epic!  They threw me a going away party too and Linda made me a cake with monkeys on it since my Chinese name is 猴子 (Hóuzi), which means monkey.

We had a blast like always.  Some Chinese kid wrote a note in permanent marker on a ledge for the Plan B team to call him and left his full name and phone number.  The ledge is in front of a nice college.  Gnarly.

Our guide, Pappa, was incredible.  No English.  Funkiest teeth you’ll ever see.  Handles business like a pro.  Walks around the hotel in his robe and is constantly fucking with everyone.  Great guy.  Psycho.

Nixon x Plan B Soundclash

Hyped to work with Nixon and Plan B on something.  The products are rad.  I use the speaker almost everyday and the board features the most creative spin on grip I’ve seen in years.

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?

Interactive Video: A Session with Plan B

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.

I came up with the concept and directed the spot.

Failed Actor! Role: Quarterback Punk

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.

Hot Shit!,

Who do you think you are!? I am!

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!

GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac with Ryan Sheckler

GoPro invited Ryan Sheckler and me to try out the new GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac.  We dreamt up a fun little concept and headed to New York City.  Thanks to everyone involved.  Stoked on the final product!

Some of the funnest times of my life making this video with Corbin Harris, Ronnie Flynn, and friends. Thanks to all who made it possible. Can’t wait to get back to OZ.

Food Fight by Eric McHenry

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.  

Thanks, ttusk.
