It seem like every time I turn the corner, there’s a new blade video on the rise. It’s exciting, as I don’t think we’ve experienced a time prior that saw such a wealth of content on a consistent basis, not to mention a majority of it being very high caliber. Chris Calkins reached out to me recently, and surprise surprise, he’s working on a blade video. So I put my pen to paper and asked Chris a few questions about it.
Jeremy and I first met in early 2011 when I organized the 1st “Sin City Session” in Las Vegas. The whole LA scene came out for the comp and we’ve been homies ever since.
When did you two start working on videos together?
Shortly after the Sin City Session, I moved to LA and we almost immediately starting filming and skating together.
How long have you been working on this latest piece?
Since Feet4 wrapped up we have been working on stacking footage. We went into this not really having a timeframe and more just having fun with friends. That makes for some of the best footage and memories.
Mainly just Jeremy and I with the actual video, but we could not have done any of it without the support, trust, and dedication of all the homies we work with.
Who’s been responsible for filming?
The filming has been mostly Jeremy and myself, with a healthy amount of contributed footage from a few others. Thanks you to anyone that gave us clips!
How will the final product be? Will there be split sections, or will it be more fluid like a homie video?
