First film I (Bernie) made was 20 years ago..age 15...yep you will see me at age 15...,,it was a very ambitious underground skateboard movie in shot in Adelaide called "NO FRILLS" shot on 8mm,edited & released on vhs, & bootlegged heavily & passed around on vhs by Adelaide Skaters for many years..
famous in its time "PRE INTERNET DAYS" in Adelaide for its extreme content cut in/edited by Bernie with segments of real crazy controversial teen exploitation drunken skate party antics filmed by Bernie & edited cuts of 'Shocking Asia' with strange sex shows & Asian chicks smoking ciggies out of their vaginas..hahaha...a fav at drunk skate parties.
Thought to be lost for ever..my master tapes were accidently destroyed,erased..a lot of the skaters & friends with copies had moved on,lost track of each other for over the years.. & no surviving vhs bootlegs were known to be in reach. I almost forgot about ever finding any footage or a copy.
No copy was in possession until recenlty,,a very rough vhs surfaced by a featured skater in the movie.
NOW.Here is some old rare footage of me (Bernie) aged 14/15 back in 1991/92 street skating..
The snap shot in time of my skating after only a few years is faily avarage and yes I progressed immensely..but for archival purposes,its the first official movie made by me over 20 years ago.
This vhs surviving dub found had unfortunately very poor sound & some visual/tracking issues..the footage is vhs recorded/dubbed in 1991 & 1992....so is the cheap tape is was bootlegged on...its ruff,grimy & authentic amature vhs skateboard film.
enjoy a Vintage taste of lil punk Bernie aka Vin bustin some radical moves with a updated soundtrack
SKATE & DESTROY! SKATE & CREATE!
