CONCRETE CIRCUS (W/T), CHANNEL 4
I’m stoked about my new production for Channel 4, Concrete Circus (working title).
Inspired by the sporting and filmmaking talents behind the most amazing urban sports virals of the last 2 years, the film brings together the “stars” and directors from the four very different sports for the very first time: Urban trials rider Danny MacAskill; the mesmerizing skateboarder Kilian Martin (and his LA filmmaker Brett Novak); Storm Freerun’s Paul ‘Blue’ Joseph – a veteran of my film Jump Britain – along with British Parkouriste Phil Doyle and Canada’s Mathieu Ledoux (working with director Claudiu Voicu); and finally, worldwide BMX flatland star Keelan Philips (shooting with a director making his debut sports film, Kendy Ty).
The feature-length documentary will explore the lives and skills of all of these spectacular talents from both in-front of and behind the camera. But that’s not all. Concrete Circus will chart the creation of four brand new, breath-taking and beautiful films by the four filmmakers. Together these new films will be premiered as the centerpiece of the documentary.
The documentary conclusion – directed by yours truly – fuses the four different sports and disciplines together into a unique finale.
I’m making the film with my friends at Renegade Pictures and it airs on Channel 4 later this summer as part of a major season about street culture.
