Augusto Castillo – One For The Road
from Mike Torres on 30 Nov 2017
Augusto’s section started one night in January 2016 over some beers at a local bar in Bushwick. We knew we wanted to work together to make him a well thought out section as a stand-alone piece.
For a large portion of this, Augusto was working second shift in midtown, which means he wasn’t getting off of work until 11pm, and I was working a 9-5, so the only way our schedules would line up for one on one filming is if we were putting in some seriously late nights during the week. This ended up giving his section a very special feel since we realized we had just as much (if not more) night footage as we did day footage.
There was a couple things I didn’t realize when we began this project. First was that Nate Moore had a ton of Super 8 footage of Augusto that he was willing to contribute, and second was that Augusto was SUPER good at filming. Both of these things ended up making One For The Road possible since Augusto basically filmed my entire part, and since Nate had loads of beautifully shot Super 8 footage that helped beef up the supplementary sections and give a wonderful aesthetic to the video. I think it’s safe to say, without this section, the video wouldn’t have happened.
Hermanos is Finally Here!

Back in 2015 we mentioned in The Rumour Mill that Ivan Narez was working on a blading video called Hermanos and, after almost three years of waiting, it’s finally here. It turns out the project is a joint venture with close friend, former pro blader and incredible photographer Brandon Smith, which appears in the form of a hardback photography book that also contains a film within in. The film that was shot entirely on 16mm film and features various skaters as they journey through several Mexican cities. A two for one that includes the perfect coffee table accessory and a unique blade flick? Talk about value for money! Read our interview with Ivan Narez HERE. Purchase Hermanos HERE.
