I’m making a film

I’m making a short documentary film. Collaborating with the very talented Thomas L Brown. The documentary will look at skateboarding and space. We are at the pre-production stage. We are self-financing.

Dylan Leadley-Watkins is in the mix. Plus a few anti-skateboarding devices. We are going to get up to no good. Make a bit of trouble. For now I hope you enjoy Tom’s films above and below. I will post more as we progress. This is something I have always wanted to do and I’m very excited.
