Literally cannot wait to see this new Barefoot documentary on Lee Ralph. A new trailer dropped this week featuring those who came across his wonderful character.
Alex Dyer’s film will feature Tony Hawk, Mark Gonzales, Christian Hosoi, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Gregor Rankine, Kevin Staab, Chris Miller, Steve Douglas, Bod Boyle, Andrew Morrison, Ron Allen, Peter Hill, Stephen Hill, Bob Goodsby and many more. Coming soon.
The documentary on New Zealand skateboarding legend Lee Ralph‘s life has gone from web documentary to full blown release says Alex Dyer behind the lens and organisation of the project. Words with Dyer published here discuss the filming that is going down with various pro’s:
“Pretty much every story is funny and entertaining, as Lee has a way of spinning a classic almost Chopper-esque style yarn for every story. The only hard part is trying to get him to keep on a subject, or conversely to actually get to the point that he was aiming for before the memory cards run out. It’s fantastic though, most of the best stories have come from the informal nature of the questioning and the rambles that come from Lee’s encyclopaedic mind.”
We are patiently waiting but inside we are screaming to see it right now!
Keep up to speed with plans of ‘Barefoot – The Lee Ralph Story’ release here.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa with a massive influence from RAD and Thrasher Magazine he was religiously engulfed into the punk rock and skateboarding lifestyle. Not a self proclaimed artist but a loser with a passion. Painting to pass time and to kill the Grey Britain, a style developed that sucked and was useless, but somehow looked cool.
