Humboldt RampArt Collective and the Ink People present Skate/BMX movie night! The RampArt Collective brings you two feature films from Transworld Skateboarding and Empire BMX. This is a benefit for the RampArt Skatepark, a planned indoor facility for the skateboarding and BMX cycling community. RampArt is a newly formed DreamMaker project of the Ink People, aiming to engage the public in a multitude of creative outlets including the arts. Proceeds from a silent auction and raffle go toward the first phase of this project.
TransWorld SKATEboarding is proud to present our 24th video, The Cinematographer Project. We’ve assembled 13 of skateboarding’s finest filmmakers to each produce their own original three-to-five minute short. The result is a truly creative and diverse take on the current world of skateboarding. Torsten Frank: features Mark Gonzales’ thoughts and skating in Europe with Chewy Cannon and Lem Villemin. Christopher Middlebrook: highlights an all-Australian section with a host of rippers including Jake Duncombe, Lewis Marnell, Dane Burman and Nick Boserio. Chris Ray: filmed an entire Evan Smith part. Dan Wolfe: did the same shooting a Dennis Busenitz part with Real team riders Justin Brock, Peter Ramondetta, Ishod Ware, James Hardy and more. Beagle: entertains everyone with the skating of Jamie Tancowny, Lizard, Theotis Beasley, Figgy and tons of others. Jon Holland: puts Sk8 Mafia in the spotlight with Tyler Surrey, Wes Kremer, Jamie Palmore, Jimmy Cao and more. Bill Strobek: rolls with Alex Olson, Dylan Rieder and Mark Gonzales to name a few. Russell Houghten: amazes with his time-lapse work while featuring skating from Dylan Rieder, Arto Saari, Tom Karengelov, and many others. Brennan Conroy: films the Habitat team in a smooth montage with Silas Baxter-Neal, Stefan Janoski, Mark Succi and others. Mike Manzoori: skates the city streets at night with Jose Rojo, Kyle Leeper, Rodrigo TX, and a host of others. RB Umali: shot an all NYC groove with Zoo York and Brandon Westgate, Chaz Ortiz, Eli Reed and more. Lee Dupont: focuses on Washington Street Skate park with Pat Duffy, Kyle Berard, Matt Mumford, Danny Dicola and many others. And finally Alien Workshop: has a power driven montage that will knock your socks off featuring the entire Alien team with an added focus on Austyn Gillette and Jake Jones.
Empire Bikes‘ “Bad Idea” is the widely anticipated follow-up to Empire’s 2007 film “Chill Bro”. Their newest film “Bad Idea” features full parts from Tom Dugan, Chase Hawk, Kevin Porter, Aaron Ross, Sean Sexton, and Tom Smith. Austin, Texas, based filmmaker Dave Parrick is responsible for such seminal classics as the Homeless Bikes series, “Dirty Deeds,” Nowhere Fast” and etnies’ “Forward,” and has long been known as an absolute perfectionist, favoring pushed back release dates over rushed jobs in the 20-plus years he’s been producing films..
