Director Statement

During tough times, I know what it like to go to a park alone and be in bad situation and then suddenly make some lifetime friends. It seems fast but I used to skateboard for many years and I can confidently say that’s how it happens. It makes me happy to see that roller skating has grown into such a big community. I hope to see the community continue to grow even more. Thank you to everyone who was a part of this. This project was for the community and to show off all the locals in the Music Video.
