Right ‘Ere My Son!
‘Over the course of the last handful of years, myself and Ben never had anything like an agenda as far as filming skateboarding went. If we were going out skating, the camera would be in the bag most of the time, but neither of us were ever under much pressure to get the thing out. Each time we would happen to film a clip, Ben would be energised with some new idea – “lets film a fun skatepark edit”, “lets film a trick tips video”, “lets give all of my footage to enjoi/Converse/Volcom”. What we have here is a patchwork of those spontaneous sessions, the fruits of various agenda-less road trips, the foundation stones for projects that were often discussed but never quite got off the ground. Some of this footage has surfaced over the years, some of it may have slipped through the cracks and some of it may be new to you. Either way, I hope that by sharing these moments, it helps in some small way to keep Ben and his energy close to us.’ – Ryan Gray
