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.

A Place in the Sun
from New Balance Numeric
For the first New Balance numeric video the team focused on the home of cinema and celebrity, Los Angeles, California.
They searched the spaces between the glamour, the fortune and the broken promises. They found that beneath its dazzling surface L.A. is as real and raw as any major metropolis on earth. Skate spots abound in the side-streets and empty school yards of this glitzy place in the sun.
