Evan Smith embodies the very roots of skateboarding and its creative nature. With an incredible run in the past few years, Evan has put out a myriad of mind-numbing video parts, enough coverage to stop the presses, and done it all with style for miles. So it should come to no surprise that Element and DC are proud to announce that Evan Smith is the newest pro to their teams. And what better way to do so, than roll it all out with a full-length video part, set to his own soundtrack… Turn on, tune in, and drop out; this is The Evan Smith Experience.
With his unique approach to skateboarding, music, photography and art wrapped into one project, the Evan Smith Experience is much more than just your typical video part. Watch the teaser and stay tuned for the full Evan Smith Experience on 3/21/13.
Migrations is a three-part series of behind-the-scenes footage from Future Nature, The Element Am Video. Shot on location in Mallorca, Costa Rica, and the Basque Country in Spain, this raw footage offers an in-depth look at Amateurus, the amateur skateboarder. Migrations stars Boo Johnson, Evan Smith, Julian Davidson, Madars Apse, and Nick Garcia.
Episode 1, Mallorca Migration is now playing. Mallorca, the Spanish island in the Mediterranean was the first of many stops while filming for Future Nature. This is a behind-the-scenes look at what we captured while stalked these animals through the coastline, mountains, and into the plazas.
Episode 2, Costa Rica Migration airs on Friday, August 31st. While following Amateurus for Future Nature, we ended up in the jewel of the equator, Costa Rica. We trailed the pod from the sunken seas to the highest mountain tops, surrounded by a volcanic skyline.
Episode 3, Basque Migration airs on Friday, September 7th. The final location of this exodus was the northern providence of Spain, known as Basque Country. We stalked Amateurus from Bilbao to Madrid, and everywhere in between.
