1995 IS JUST UNDER 6 MINUTES OF SKATEBOARDING FILMED BY QUENTIN GUTHRIE IN THE PERTH STREETS. ALL KILLA AND NO FILLER. WE GRILLED QUENTIN TO GET SOME MORE INFO ABOUT THE PROJECT.
WHY CALL IT 1995?
IS HIP HOP ALWAYS THE RIGHT CHOICE?
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE FIRST AND LAST TRICKS? WHATS YOUR EDITING PROCESS?
I generally don’t have a plan when editing. I pick who I want to open then add clips based on what flows with the music. I try to mix the footage so that each person’s style compliments the last.
TELL US ABOUT THE OPENING TRICK?
The first clip is Olaf’s nollie tail 270 on the volt. He did it first try then I filmed him land it about 18 times after that and ended up using the first one.
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE TO FILM THIS?
Not long.. about as long Barry stayed sober. Roughly five months.
DESCRIBE THE FOOTAGE THAT STANDS OUT THE MOST TO YOU?
My line at woolies because it’s razor.
WHO SHOULD HAVE HAD MORE FOOTAGE?
I wish Lewis Rodan had footage in there.
WHY DIDN’T HE?
I must’ve fucked up everything we filmed in the period.
WHY SO MANY CITY SPOTS? WAS THAT A CONSCIOUS DECISION?
“explore the city” “it’s all about lines” “ideas first” “skaters must by united” “your impression”
WHAT TRICKS ALMOST GOT DONE OR ALMOST MADE THE CUT?
Quayde did a front 50-50 back 360 out on an up ledge and I didn’t use it because he lifted his back foot off the board on the landing. I kind of wish I did use it now.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE FOOTAGE THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT?
Everything left over I gave to Olaf and Bruns for Blacklisted. Olaf filmed the majority of that video and Bruns took all the credit.
DID YOU FILM EVERY TRICK MORE THEN ONCE?
Yes, as expected.
WHAT UP WITH ALL THE LENS HITS?
It felt appropriate to include as I usually cop a lens hit on almost every trick I attempt to film.
ANY BUSTED CAMERAS OR SCRATCHED LENSES IN THE FILMING OF THIS?
DOES THAT BANDAID ON YOUR CAMERA DO ANYTHING?
It’s sporting tape?
DOES IT DO ANYTHING OR IS IT JUST FOR SPORTS LUX STYLE?
Rodan hit my camera and the microphone broke off. It was hanging on by a cable and the tape holds it together. It was all I had in my bag at the time. Left over from when i used to tape my shoulder up to skate after I dislocated the sucker.
AAAAHH FROM A PREVIOUS SPORTING INJURY?
Haha yeah it’s all about sports.
DID THAT EFFECT YOUR FILMING?
Nah thankfully it was my left shoulder. Harry drove me to hospital for both dislocations.
DID YOU CRY?
No. I’m not as emotional as Ethan.
DID HARRY CRY?
Is this part if the interview?
WHAT ARE THE BEST AND WORST THINGS ABOUT PUTTING A CLIP LIKE THIS ON YOUTUBE?
The best – unrelated related videos
The worst – people making draining references to the Mobbn Deep video.
WHY DO YOU THINK IT GOT SO MANY VIEWS?
DID YOU EXPECT IT TO GET THAT MANY VIEWS?
DO ALOT OF PEOPLE THINK IT WAS FILMED IN 1995?
A few YouTube comments suggest they do.
HOW DID YOU CHOOSE WHAT TO HAVE AS THE LAST TRICK?
Ahern deserved curtains.
DO YOU THINK THAT’S AN IMPORTANT DECISION?
I guess you want it to be good if it’s the last thing on screen.
WHEN’S THE NEXT ONE COMING OUT?
I’ve got something coming out next month. My Chinese friend Christopher Luu has clips in there.
VX1000 OR ……..?
