Keep on Pushin' represents what skateboarding means to me, it is my way of thanking skateboarding for all that it has given me.
Keep On Pushin' is part of REDirect, a celebration of skateboard filmmaking between red.com and theberrics.com. Showcasing twelve of the most renowned skateboarding filmmakers in the world, each filmmaker had 2 months to shoot and edit a short film about skateboarding. The contestants were kitted with all components needed to shoot on RED.
Thank you Berrics and RED for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing project.
