The House of Vans in Waterloo, London will host the new Jenna Selby skate movie Days Like These for Rogue Skateboards.
Jenna’s previous flick, As If And What? released back in 2009 featured all the upcoming female skateboarders on Jenna’s radar, knowing that the level of talent has risen tenfold since then in male and female skateboarding, this should be ace.
Footage of Lucy Adams, Julia Brueckler, Camilla Mullins, Josie Millard and Dora Horvath will be included, scheduled to premiere on 5th December in two showings at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
Expect a photo exhibition, skate jam, DJs and drinks. Get yourself on the list.
Let’s kick this off by saying that the hype surrounding this film before it aired at the Prince Charles cinema in London was completely justified. It’s an incredible production that has zero filler and parts that will leave your jaw on the floor. Greg Hunt obviously worked his socks off to get this completed at the highest level and left no stones unturned. It’s so damn good that it feels like everyone has the ender.
At the world premiere, Geoff Rowley mentioned that Propeller “is a raw video, like one you grew up with” and he’s spot on. Doused in fast moving rock n’roll, each section is peppered with incredible skateboarding, packing gnar and tech from a crew who broke bones to make it special. Let’s hope that those skaters who grow up with Propeller see full length production as the norm, and bring back the full length as a priority over web clips in the future. It’s night’s like these where you wished the internet never existed.
The premiere itself was packed to the gills and over subscribed with people who had travelled from all over the UK. There were no seats for us, so we were asked to watch it upstairs where we joined Sidewalk’s Horse, Henry from Grey Mag and about 10 others and watched it with a Rob Smith introduction instead of the full cast. I’m sure the atmosphere downstairs was electric though, as each part just takes the piss. No spoilers of course as you will have to downnload it and watch it on iTunes on May 5th when it drops worldwide, but it’s a ridiculously impressive skateboard video and one to keep.
Plenty of booze was consumed at the House of Vans afterwards, where Steve Van Doren made burgers for everyone and was joined by Lutheran, Zorilla, Hunt, Rowley, Trujillo and more of the pro team. At 1am, Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi decided it was time for a bowl sesh. Enjoy this drunk cam footage and snaps from the phone. Go get Propeller as soon as you can.
Those who are heading down to the Halloween Massacre skate jam next Saturday will be stoked to know that a public screening of the brand new Death Skateboards DVD, ‘Ordinary Madness‘ has been arranged and will now be aired on the big screen during the event.
The film premiered last week in Harrow and since then, the team have been on tour across the UK skating and screening the movie in its entirety. The new film is sick, with sections from newcomer Matt Pennington, Richie Jackson, Patrick Melcher, Rob Smith, Dan Cates, Boots and many more. View a full gallery of photos from the London premiere here.
The new Baysixty6 skatepark has a new high lumen projector and white wall where ‘Ordinary Madness’ will be screened at 1.30pm. Invite friends from the Facebook event page here and start planning your outfits.
The Baker Skateboards video premiere of Bake and Destroy was the talk of the town this weekend after skaters allegedly started riots in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter and other news sources have run stories on the event where a few hundred skaters were said to have rampaged outside the Vine Theatre in Hollywood after too many turned up to get in. Allegedly bottles and rocks were thrown at Police who were on full scale alert with tear gas and shooters.
UK skater Alex Moul was there: “It was so gnarly it started a riot and that’s not a joke, Hollywood blvd shut down and locked in for our own protection as police were firing rubber bullets and letting off tear gas.”
Deathwish Skateboards pro Erik Ellington was one of hundreds inside the theatre when all hell broke loose outside and told ESPN:
“When I was watching the video I was midway through the theater and I heard from somebody that there was a riot going on out front and it’s crazy when you find something like that out when you really can’t do anything about it. If they shut the video off, there would be a riot on the inside.”
It was 5 years ago that most of the people present tonight last stepped through the doors of the Trinity Pub. I’m pretty sure a police car was stolen, broken bottles were awash on the floors, punk rock throttled the speakers and the Death family unleashed the killer DVD,’Better Than Life’. Since then, a lot has changed. As Zorlac said in his opening speech tonight: “…some good shit and bad shit has gone down in between”. Tonight though, is all about one great feat: The unveiling of ‘Ordinary Madness’.
Mark Nicolson and Jake Shunt amongst others have worked hard to get this new Death Skateboards film out. The new wave of ams are getting better and better, making the pro’s up their game to keep their names on the wood.
Tonight in Harrow, most of the team are present and many of them annihilated by the end of the night. Even Richie Jackson, Matt Pennington and Patrick Melcher were in attendance straight off of flights from across the pond. This crew make a lot of effort and as a result, make a lot of others happy with very little politics or skateboard industry bullshit. You get what you see and you are either in our you’re out with Death, and that is to be commended.
Big shouts to all involved including Monster who provided the liquour, Wonk Unit and Meansteed, the two bands that played on the night and all who turned up to see the good ship Death sail once again. Other premiere dates and demos can be found here.
