First Broadcast 20 Year Reunion
The Grey Mag guys had an ingenious idea....bring together the cast and crew of the amazing "First Broadcast" video for a little re-watch and commentary session. If you're not familiar, First Broadcast was a video for Blueprint Skateboards that actually was more like an independent project because videomaker Dan Magee decided to welcome all of the other strong UK board brands to be a part of the project so it was more of a UK skate scene video than it was a Blueprint full length. But not only was that idea revolutionary, this video really showcased the unique vision that became Dan Magee's signature style and influenced skate video-makers worldwide. Especially in the UK and Europe.
I was personally very enamored and influenced by this project and it really got me extra stoked on the UK skate scene. Which was ironic because I first saw it when I was already in England working on a London section for Static II. But the vibe and tone of the video really helped shape the world's view of British Skateboarding which, at the time, was only really represented in the US by Flip. And Magee brought us a whole different perspective which, I would argue, still carries and colors our view of UK skateboarding to this day.
This is so rad that Grey made this happen so please check it out and early 2000's skaters enjoy.
