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.
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.
