Hot Knees begins an epic series of work in the coming months. James travels to Burma in 32 days, Sahara in 72 and Antarctica in 97.
Our Burma trip sees us produce a follow up of sorts to our award winning dock, Altered Focus: Burma. Entitled Youth of Yangon, it will see us document the lives of three skateboarders in the city and a trip to the capital, Nayipadaw with the ever growing skateboard community.
The Sahara and the Antartcic see us journey to the end of the world as we continue to follow the Born to Run team on their 4 Deserts series.
We have been delighted with the feedback from the release of Altered Focus: Burma. It has been featured on a host of websites including Mpora.com where it has over 9,500 hits, Caught in the Crossfire, Transworld Skateboarding and more.
Today, Alex and James filmed an interview with BBC America’s First Person due to air in the next couple of weeks. We’ll have a link up once it airs.
Hot Knees has recently been asked to produce two promotional edits for the annual snowsports congress, taking place in Austria this year. The event is a meeting of all the countries around the world and a chance for each of them to showcase their snowsports industry.
Having been producing content in New Zealand for the 2010 winter season we were ideally placed to produce the required edits. You can see one of them here.
We are very proud to have been involved in the first ever Ink of Aotearoa Calendar and CD launch in Queenstown, New Zealand. We were on board to make a promo of this celebration of music and tatoo art and you can check it out here.
Alex Pasquini recently attended the 2010 London Night Jump and Wakeboarding contest for Monster Energy Drinks. On top of that, James has been in New Zealand filming a mini-ramp demo with Billabong and Monster riders. We’ll have edits up from both real soon!
We’ve been in Queenstown, New Zealand for NZSki and the Remarkables covering the Export 33 Parklife Invitational Rail Jam. This invite only event attracts the top riders from across the country as well as the USA and Australia.
