‘SHINE’ (2022) Is the latest amalgam of life, skate culture and skill captured through the lens of BANK LDN. Shot primarily in London UK with a special journey to Glasgow & Edinburgh, Scotland.
As paths intersect and depart, the constant remains the intuition to skate. A central beacon which has guided the collective journey of this group. A true nature is revealed in these high moments of visualisation and aesthetic brilliance - An inner realisation of oneself in a finite moment.

BANK Vol 1 is the realisation of a personal dream: to make a skate video. I’ve always been drawn to filming skating and have rarely had an interest in filming anything else. I did, however, film my football club play a match recently. It was surprisingly fun to film and edit, made more enjoyable because I knew the people playing and what ‘moves’ constituted the highlights. […] - Leon Humphries.
