“Can’t beat a bit of street skating. A bit of creativity, problem solving & of course the most fun & satisfaction. The dodgier & less perfect the spot possibly equals more satisfaction when you roll away unscathed (sometimes)”. - Scott McDonald.
Thanks for filming: Colin Weir, Stewart Docherty & Dan Koss. Filmed in Glasgow, Arbroath, Liverpool, Utrecht & Edinburgh. Most of the tripod shots apart from Edinburgh were solo sessions.
‘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.
