We're hard at work on Magic Sticky Hand 2, our 6th DVD if you can believe that! We'll be posting photo's of P Franks all week and his trailer will drop on Friday!
Stoked to be able to officially announce our new video project, magic Sticky Hand 2.
The first Magic Sticky Hand video came out in 2007, it followed up Live from Antarctica (2005) and gave all our new riders (Rogie, Colin Fiske, Deer Man of Dark Woods and Chris Ault) a chance to film parts for a new video.
Magic Sticky Hand 2 follows up Bath Salts (2015), and officially introduces Anaiah Lei, Logan Devlin and Zach Riley to the full team, and also features full parts from Craig Questions and Patrick Franklin. We're a good way into this project, working with Cody Thompson, James Craven, Darien Brown, and more filters and editors. We're aiming for a short, sweet video that will be out before Summer on DVD, and feature a load of bonus extras.
Three and a half years ago we made a little video called Video Nasty. It was shortly after I'd moved to the U.S.A. from South East London that we started working on this project. People vocalized that they weren't sure if things would work out with me moving over and getting U.S. riders, but I always saw Heroin as an international brand (Our first Pro was Japanese). So having proved myself in the UK over thirteen years to all the cynics who said that Heroin wouldn't last, I feel like I had to prove myself all over again in the U.S. Video Nasty was exactly that. Video Nasty was a massive success.
Video Nasty was the first video that we made that was ever available on iTunes. We made DVD's and a limited edition VHS run too. Thanks to all the bands who were cool about us using their songs, all the filmers who contributed footage, and Stephen Roe for killing it in editing this one.
You can finally watch it on youtube now! Click below!
Heroin Mystery boxes are available now on our webstore. Click the pic of Tony above and it'll take you straight to a load of great deals! While Stocks last
Chet is out there. Lost or found? Who knows? Clark Hodgin and Matt Miller made this snapshot of Chet.
Nick Michel and Daniel Dent (The mastermind behind Snot Job) filmed a banging part for a Transworld video contest recently. Watch it and then vote for Nick!!
Snot Job, the independent production that came out of Vegas last year was fantastic, it had two of our guys in there and a whole bunch of other people that we really like. Great video, you should pick up hard copy if you can. Here's Nick Michels part, this was definitely one of my favorite parts that came out last year. Enjoy.
We just put up Franks Shaws Bath Salts part on Vimeo. Frank got on the team just a few weeks before our editing deadline and I figured he was going to have a couple of tricks in the end credits announcing him as our new rider, but he went out and filmed a whole bunch of good stuff for it. Thought it was time to share this with everyone, not just the privileged few who own the Bath Salts DVD (or iTunes download)
We're stoked to announce that Craig Questions Scott is the newest Pro for Heroin Skateboards. If you'd have told me that the annoying kid who kept asking me loads of questions at our Live From Antarctica Premier in 2005 would be Pro for Heroin one day, I'd have laughed in your face. Over the years I've gotten to know Craig, and his enthusiasm for skateboarding is overwhelming and infectious, he reminds me why I started, and that most important of all ideas, that skating is fun. One of my favorite people in the world to skate with, I miss skating Stockwell with the little bastard. I could go on and on and tell you one of the million stories that I love about Craig, but there's no room here, I spoke to him earlier today and he said "It'll be well good when my board comes out, cos all those industry pricks will be pissed off and say "Why is He Pro?" and a load of kids who actually skate will be stoked" ha ha. Thats sums it up for me, sure, he's pissed people off along the way, but thats just the way it goes, Craig isn't afraid to speak his mind, there's no lucrative shoe deals on the line for him, we didn't fly everyone out for a party, we're just stoked to have this dirtbag skating for us, if we sella few of his boards, maybe he won't have to eat things he finds in the street anymore.
