Butter Goods in Sydney



The good people at Butter Goods (Garth Mariano & Matt Evans) wanted to put out a new edit introducing their two newest riders - Alex Campbell and Ben Gore as well as clips from the rest of the Butter Goods family. Josh Roberts (film maker) had been wanting to go to Sydney for awhile, and so it was - Butter Goods in Sydney.

We've got a pictorial synopsis of the crew while they pieced together the "IRIE" - Butter Goods in Sydney edit. [*Cont]



Words, captions & some photos by team rider Morgan Campbell. Video grabs: Roberts

Street Premiere


Whoever invented the film thru the viewfinder with the I-phone is a straight up genius. Street premieres allow a communal viewing and save you from glitches down the line. Vibes are always high during the street prem.

Opposing Forces


As you may remember there was a siege in Martin Place a few months back, this resulted in a notable change in approach from security.
In a little over a week we were kicked out by every form of security (and insecurity) imaginable. We are not talking standard security guards here either. Our skateboarding caused friction with concerned citizens, war vets, regular security guards, Harbour Bridge security, transits, dogs, babies, wanna-be rally driver cops, parking inspectors, and even the federal police! Despite busts and the odd bit of chaffing, Sydney threw down for our gracious posse and we were rocking perm-a-grins for the duration.

James Whineray



James Whineray’s trip to Sydney saw some serious multi-tasking. If he wasn’t tackling crust on board he was off interviewing Ken Done or taking in a show at a gallery.
Powerhouse in multiple realms. Authoritarian encounter between bouts. [*Cont]

The Rocks


We spent a fair bit of time in The Rocks sampling the country’s first street spots. I'm pretty sure this tunnel goes straight under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and is super conveniently placed if you want to pay $12 for a meat pie.
It is sad to see the community housing in the Rocks getting shut down and turned into a backdrop for a new casino.

As any avid VX1000 user “Who da tru VX-master?” And chances the name Josh Roberts will come into conversation.
He is so amazing to watch when he is in the zone… as incredible as say Alex is on a board, Josh matches him with filming skill and lens flow.
I pity Josh’s VX when it starts playing up though. He hits it so hard that he has been known to bruise his hand. I seriously contemplated buying him a rubber mallet so he could belt it as hard as he wants without getting hurt.
On this day I believe the VX was being well behaved and this alley way saw a high-speed colab between Alex and Roberts. [*Cont]

On the eve of releasing his new independent film - "Domingo 2" - we threw Josh Roberts a few questions.



Josh Roberts is about to release his second full length independent / underground video “Domingo 2”.
He is based in the most remote city in the world but it doesn’t stop him from understanding what goes into making a great clip and raw skating look so good.
Find out whats’s up with Domingo 2, filming, watch the trailer and pre-order a copy of his independent release.

I wanted to emphasize the style of skating in the video which focused on simplicity, going fast



Are you working on a project specifically for the Butter Goods brand?
Who , What, Where, When?


So the Butter guys (Garth Mariano & Matt Evans) wanted to put out a new edit with their two newest riders, Alex Campbell and Ben Gore as well as cameos from the rest of the team.
I had been wanting to go to Sydney for awhile, skate some new spots etc and it ended up happening for this project. The crew was myself, Alex Campbell, Casey Foley, Phillip Marshall, Morgan Campbell. Garth and Matt were also there and a couple of homies Leigh Barlow and James Whineray. [*Cont]

Any particular stand-out moments from your week in Sydney?

 

Nothing too specific on memorable experiences... Skating a new city is always inspiring, Sydney is rather picturesque. It was just fun hanging out and skating everyday with a crew from all over Australia more or less and getting on the session with locals is always good. Yourself, Trent from Passport and Cameron Sparkes. Meeting and getting to skate with Davo (Michael Davidson) was also a highlight.

 

Any spare moment you have the Super-8 camera out!

 

I have always tried to shoot as much super 8 for the projects I'm working on, I think it is a great medium and it adds another element to the project and works really well with skateboarding.

 

Aside from "IRIE - Butter Goods in Sydney" you are working on another full length vid - what is Domingo, history, name, project etc?


So basically Domingo is the name of a video that i made in 2012, just focusing on the scene in Perth and where we were at, at that time. It was shot 90% in Perth with a couple of cameos from my friends in Melbourne.
I wanted to emphasize the style of skating in the video which focused on simplicity, going fast, and the general vibe out in Perth.


The title Domingo came from my friend Liu Puli from Japan.
He was out in Perth on his travels and i was trying to figure out a name for the video. Liu came up with Domingo and i ended up using it. Domingo means Sunday in Spanish, and out here Sunday would always be the day without fail that we would always be out skating. [*Cont]

What's the status on the progress of Domingo 2?


So now it's been a few years since the first Domingo video and I'm currently in the middle of editing Domingo 2, the second installment to that series. It has a lot of the same crew but also some new heads and places in there as well.
There is focus on a few people, Alex Campbell, James Whineray, Ricky Watt, Morgan Campbell and Casey Foley as well as skating from the Bay Area San Francisco with Leo Valls, Ben Gore, Carlos Young, Jesse Narvaez, Evan Kinori and a few other people. [*End]

Jack Kirk passed out at the nike warehouse m on a sunday afternoon when they had a skate jam/video premiere.. i think he had done an all nighter n come straight to the event and just passed out on the stairs while everyone was busy being nosiy skating or talking skating and drinking the free beer.

All kiwi skaters in melbourne live for james wright and constantly quote him and reference tricks hes done. hes like a new zealand skateboarding urban legend. a real piss head and an amazing skateboarder, this is a photo of him charming two random girls he brought around to a house i used to live at. i remember it was raining alot and they were all soaked and i gave them all dry clothes to wear.

Callum and Middsy and Fiddy at a house i used to live in. this was early in the night and it ended up being a big party, people always tell me they had alot of fun at this party. these 3 are all very opinionated about skateboarding and i love talking to them about it but i think its rare you de ever catch them in the same room so i like i have a photo of them all togeather im sure it was a great conversation.
