Hello planet trick!

I’m really excited to share with you a new project I’ve been working on for the past several weeks. This is a short film based off the popular documentary directed by Kevin Macdonald, “Life In A Day”. Using social media, I asked trickers around the globe to film themselves tricking on the single day of September 3, 2011. On one day, the community turned on their cameras and shared their stories about why they trick and what it means to them. I’ve just begun the editing process, but I’ve set myself a deadline to have the project ready to go on December 3, 2011 on my Youtube channel, ‘Flippin The Script!’. I restricted the footage to a single day because having all the footage in one day represents the unity within the global tricking community. Trickers are without question the most awesome, passionate, epic, boundary-pushing group of super heroes on the planet.

Follow along on Facebook and Youtube to stay updated about the progress of this film.

Trick on my friends.

I recently got the opportunity to travel to Japan to shoot a commercial for JVC. It was my first time there and I was super excited! It was amazing how similar Japan was to the US you can still find McDonalds and all the same stuff there that you can find in the states! HA! Their technology is super cool, all of their cell phones work as credit cards in the train station and even some convenience stores. They just slide and go! So cool!

Shooting of the commercial was long, about 13-14 hours on set but it was so much fun and the cast and crew were great! The day started off kind of hard because everyone spoke japanese and of course I don’t. Luckily my translator helped to keep me in the loop with everything on set. The hardest part was probably tricking on concrete after a 12 hour day of standing around and filming. Cutting the apples, rose, and grapefruit was also quite difficult with my sword. When the object is flying at you, you have to have precise timing to make the cut. But I was up for the challenge and would not have wanted it any other way. The final edit of the commercial turned out to be amazing!
