Check out the sneak peak for the new skate video My Knees Hurt.
From Producer/Editor/Photographer Ben Rupp:
“You didn’t quit skateboarding because you got old, you got old because you quit skateboarding”. This is the key sentiment that I will be pursuing with this documentary. Showing men and women well past the squares’ stereotype of what is a skateboarder ….they are husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, professionals, legends. I hope to tell their stores and explore why many of us returned to skateboarding, or never left. I will tell their stories, don’t expect a typical skateboard movie with trick after trick…(I know the teaser is misleading in this regard).
I have no deadline, and will not commit to one at this point, I would rather do this right. Holding down a day (or night to be more accurate) job gets in the way of film making. I expect to shoot through the summer then hopefully having something concrete next winter. I will be releasing teasers as I progress so stay tuned.
Featured in this teaser in order of appearance are … Chris Strople, Jeff Greenwood, Dan Hughes, Wally Inouye, Dave Kramer, Metal Mark Holt, Jeff Ament, Tim Hayes, Brice Niebuhr, Swervo Betten, Eugne Lardizabal, Oliver Tiu and Gabe Hall.
