Have you been with the same crew the whole time filming for that video?
It’s actually been pretty mixed up, which has been sick. I think I’ve filmed with every single person who’s going to be in the video, with the exception of a few. We’ve been jumping around quite a bit. Sometimes we’ll go to cities with two crews and we’ll all be together for at least a little bit. Last year, we were all in Japan, like ten of us or something, for about two days and it was pretty fun.
Are you excited for any specific person’s part in the video?
I’d say Dan the most, I think. His part’s going to be really..I don’t know how to explain it. It’s going to be really like, honest—is that the word? I don’t know. He just goes filming and does whatever he thinks is cool at the time, doesn’t like overthink it or anything and just does it usually pretty easily, so the clips are all very casual. And the tricks are obviously really nice. He has really nice style. So, I’m excited to see that.
Yeah, I don’t think Dan has a trick list before each season starts or any anxiety.
I think I’ve seen him scared one time, ever. Or even show some sort of being slightly uncomfortable at trying a trick, like maybe once.
Yeah. You recently made a skate video for Antisocial Skateshop, which was super sick.
How long did you film for that?
We filmed almost three years. I’d say two-and-a-half years.
How do you balance that with filming snowboarding in the winter.
In the winter, I didn’t do anything. When winter came, I wouldn’t work on the Antisocial video at all. I would completely stop. We wouldn’t even film anything, because there wasn’t really anyone else filming for it. So, we’d go through periods all winter where nothing would happen and then the next summer would come around and I’d try to meet up with everyone as best as I could and keep filming. It was kind of hard. Everyone in the skate video moved away from Vancouver, kind of right when we started it and they lived in in different cities throughout Canada at different points, so that was kind of hard. But, it didn’t really affect the times where I would be filming for my video part in the winter. Maybe a little bit in the summer when we’d be trying to do extra snowboard trips to places, that was when it was hard, because I’d want to go to Hood and everything else, but there’d also be trips planned to Montreal to film for the Antisocial video. So, that was kind of a juggle. Definitely busy all year-round while I was doing it. Really busy.
