Fresh out the fryer, independently produced and directed by Lance Mountain, “Pool Service” reminds us why Lance never goes out style. 30 years later, the skateboard legend and the Nike SB construction crew (including 2011 Skater of the Year – Grant Taylor, Peter Hewitt, Al Partanen and Alex Olson) dig and build a pool for a family away on vacation, finishing and sessioning it just prior to their return. Featuring music by Indian Wig (Lance and long-time cohorts Neil Blender, Hogo Nagarian, and Eddie Glass) and Gaoler’s Daughter. Video above. Enjoy.
Cats and dogs, of the rain variety, skunk the crew in Shanghai. City sights, pricey import coffees and counterfeit markets keep the boys busy until the skies clear up.. kinda. With the streets drying out, Hjalte Halberg, Anton Juul, Nis Anderson, Morten Bech, Danijel Stankovic and Henry Swan hit it hard to make up for lost time.
Episode 2 in a series of three. If you haven’t already, catch Episode 1 here. Stay tuned for Episode 3 dropping on March 6.
““Light” a short film directed by David Parker, initially began as a project intended to bring awareness to energy waste. Bleeding, crying lights were meant to metaphorically parallel the way in which we invisibly squander our natural resources without much thought. While the original sentiment remains, the film also grew into a poetic statement about a world run amok and the human tendency to exploit that which we hold dear.
The film was shot over a couple nights in Los Angeles as two friends drove around with a camera exploring the city’s architecture and abandoned landscapes. Keeping in this vain, the film will be projected in selected US cities in vacant storefront windows and onto walls in alleys as a moving piece of public art.”
