Charley Ford Forever
from Kevin Strick
“Charley Ford Forever” is a passion project from cinematographer Nate Klein and video editor Kevin Strick. For those not close to the skateboarding community, Charley Ford, aka CJ, was a skater from South Central LA that was the unfortunate victim of a homicide on October 21st, 2012. CJ was on his way to making a name for himself within the skateboarding industry, having racked up a healthy list of sponsors, a ‘Mag Minute’ spotlight on The Skateboard Mag’s website, and filming with established videographers such as Nigel Alexander. Charley had an energy, charisma, and raw talent to him that magnetized people who, in turn, wanted to be around him and see him ‘make it’ in skateboarding.
