When I made this skate documentary, it felt like I was sitting down with old friends and discussing old times; but we had no expectations that this film would have any success. We made it the way we wanted, because we liked it. Nobody believed in it. When we were doing the film, everyone treated it like a trivial exercise, but you know what, if you do the right thing in your life, if you listen carefully, things happen. If you’re willing to live in a state of heightened insecurity, things will work themselves out. When a friend saw a rough-cut of the film, she said "You’re going to Sundance with this." And we did.
