RAW TAPES: London 2006 Series-Episode 1
After staring at a towering inferno of literally 21 external hard drives lining my desk in the TOA office and 15 drawers full of DV and hi-8 tapes, it hit me that there's roughly 25 years of footage just growing stale in this office. A lot of it having never been seen or countless other angles and second, third and fourth makes that never saw the light of day. So, I opened up the filing cabinets last week and started logging footage. The first tape I pulled out was from the summer of 2006 when we spent 3 months in London to film for the Static III video. One of the most amazingly productive summers I've ever had filming. As I started to build out a timeline from just a few tapes I realized it wouldn't be right unless I captured everything from the entire trip. So a 5 minute timeline quickly turned into a 25 minute feature length mess. So I figured instead of edit it all down it would be better to split it up into a 3 part series.
So here's the first episode and it features a really rad cast of characters including (in order of appearance): Charlie Young, Seth Curtis, Joey Pressey, Rob Mathiesson, Alex Klein, Nick Jensen, Nate Broussard, Olly Todd, Pat Stiener, Daniel Kinloch and James Edson. All filmed by myself, Josh Stewart. We hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for the next 2 episodes coming soon.
