The Quit Your Life Tour. An idea to make an edit in each city with a different camera/ filmer/ editor.

Last Stand with Geoff Phillip

This time around I decided my best bet to diversify the look and feel of this edit was to go back to the 2100, warm the colors up Las Vegas style and shoot the whole thing long lens.

Tad, Clune and I drove down to meet up with Chris Nappy and his lady at Nap’s grandparents house, with Hazen and Dan Bird to follow on the bus a couple days later.

Coming from nothing but snow and ice in Salt Lake for a week to warm sunny 70 degree Vegas was a welcome transition. Everybody got clips, and when it was time to go, I couldn’t help but stay another week in Vegas with Tony Rivituso, rounding out a full year of the QYLT by leaving Christmas Eve.

This will be the last installment of the series. Thanks for watching, and look out for a “best of” edit sometime in the foreseeable future.Geoff Phillip.

SLC Work Week with Geoff Phillip

The Quit Your Life Tour. An idea to make an edit in each city with a different camera/ filmer/ editor.

SLC Work Week with Geoff Phillip

I was greeted in SLC by the Bladed and Faded boys and had a great skate at We Are One skatepark, followed by five days of struggling to find obstacles that I could still skate with my injury (a small inguinal hernia which made it difficult to jump high or sustain any sort of impact).

After those five days SLC was hit with a foot of snow, so we spent the rest of my stay there bouncing between shooting pool at the 10540 and skating We Are One.

Considering the time of year, my state of health, and having a couple clips go missing I’m really happy with the finished product. Next stop: Las Vegas. – Geoff Phillip.

West Coast Trippin’ with Geoff Phillip

West Coast Trippin' with Geoff Phillip

After the Denver edit, my good friend Mykel Fatali went out and got himself a new car. Naturally, we decided to go drive it around for a while.

A 10 day trip driving up the west coast, starting from Denver, stopping in Las Vegas, San Diego, Fresno, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, ending with me staying in Boise.

We would drive a day and then skate a day, with a round trip total of somewhere around 50 hours in the car. We braved 106 degree temperatures in Vegas and even stopped by Rollerwarehouse so Myk could pick up some new V13s. Next up: Salt Lake City.Geoff Phillip.

Filmed by Mykel Fatali on a sony nex 7. Additional ender angle provided by Jonny Xmas.

12 days in Denver with Geoff Phillip

The Quit Your Life Tour. An idea to make an edit in each city with a different camera/ filmer/ editor.

After the Wichita trip was cut short due to James leaving on an unexpected business trip, I returned to Denver CO to film part 6 with the boys.

12 days in Denver with Geoff Phillip

I cut off all my hair, bought some new skins and started spot hunting. I skated every day, whether driving for miles with Mykel Fatali or skating around in the heart of the city with Walker, and I managed to clip up enough for this edit.

I hadn’t skated any Denver spots since my El Chupo part, so it was nice to sort of look at the city with fresh eyes and try to explore different options for the spots I already knew. The rest is a blur of kush smoke and good times with my homies in Renfer. Next up: West Coast Trip Edit.Geoff Phillip.

Edited by Mykel Fatali. Filmed by Ian Walker, Mykel Fatali, Greg Schlosser, Justin Barr and Howie Bennett. Filmed using a canon t2i, sony nex7, Panasonic hvx, and canon 7d.

Geoff Phillip: War on Wichita, by James Merrills

Friday, November 8th, 2013

The Quit Your Life Tour. An idea to make an edit in each city with a different camera/ filmer/ editor.

After five months away from my home in Denver, CO, I flew back for a few days before heading to Wichita, KS for 3 weeks with my good friend James Merrills, who had just relocated there for work.

Geoff Phillip: War on Wichita, by James Money

I was immediately blown away by the sheer amount of street practice rails, but James did a pretty good job of steering me away from them, pushing me to skate more interesting spots even if I didn’t really want to.

Wichita was a very different sort of filming experience being that it was just James and I for 90% of the filming. Coming from making the Seattle edit and the Portland edit in the same month, filming in Wichita seemed like skating on a different planet.

At times it felt like the forces of Kansas were working against me, a tornado even touched down 3 miles away! However, we reigned victorious in the end and got enough footage to make an edit. Next stop: Denver, CO.Geoff Phillip.

Two Weeks In Portland with Geoff Phillip

Monday, July 8th, 2013

The entire idea behind the Quit Your Life Tour was to make an edit with a different filmer and editor in a different city with a different camera.

Two Weeks In Portland with Geoff Phillip

Just me, my skates, my pocket change and the good graces of the rollerblading community to get my by after I quit my job and left my home on christmas day. The day after I finished filming Seattle I took a bus to Portland and started filming for this.

Again, there wasn’t a designated filmer so every day was sort of a toss up. Against all odds the weather held true and I was almost never without somebody to blade with. I had to reuse my vx2100 / mkii setup for this edit, but I feel the added super8mm footage and my choice of color correction gives the section a different enough feel.

My favorite part about this piece is the music, though. A year prior I spoke with my good friend and former rollerblading stunt man Sean McCauley about making a track specifically designed for my skating, and what resulted was better than I imagined. Next stop: Wichita, KS.Geoff Phillip.

Filmed by Christmas, MZA, Ben Schwab, Dustin Jamieson, Dast and Jon Copeland.

16 days with Geoff Phillip (Seattle): B-Roll

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

B-Roll edit following the 16 days with Geoff Phillip post.

My idea for the Quit Your Life Tour was to make an edit in each city I visited with a different camera/ filmer/ editor.

I left my home and job in Denver on christmas day for the northwest. The third stop on tour was Seattle, WA filming with my good friend Carter LeBlanc for 16 days.

16 days with Geoff Phillip (Seattle)

Seattle in the spring can be very very wet though, and we had been planning this trip for over a year. I patiently bided my time filming in north Idaho, watching the weather in Seattle and waiting.

As soon as I saw a couple days of sunlight in a row, I hit the road. My luck couldn’t have been better, and we ended up making what I like to think of as my best profile yet.Geoff Phillip.

The In Between with Geoff Phillip

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

The entire idea behind the Quit Your Life Tour was to make an edit with a different filmer and editor in a different city with a different camera.

This stop on tour takes place in and around my hometown in the middle of nowhere north Idaho. The biggest difference was not having one main filmer, instead entrusting my trusty vx2100 / mkii to a few blader friends.

Most of the clips, however, were filmed by a girl with no experience other than my advice. Overall a successful pit stop between cities, with Seattle as the next destination. I hope you enjoy. Quit Your Life! – Greg Freeman.

Filmed by Amanda Hanson, Erich Univer, Graeme Wilson, Jason Skiles, Dave Hill. Edited by Glenn Fuego. Music by Hype Williams. In case you missed the first stop on tour check A month in Boise with Geoff Phillip by Erik Bill.
