SKATE AID

Skate Aid  |  Uganda Skateboard Union  |  Kieran Hodges Films

Once upon a time in the Kitintale slums of Kampala, Uganda local visionary Mubiru Jackson saw people flying on TV. They were skateboarders. This inspired his lifelong dream of bringing skateboarding – and all it can teach us about life, resilience and commitment – to his local community.  This is the trailer for the documentary Kieran Hodges and I shot for the charity supporting his dream, Skate Aid.

CONNECTING CULTURES

From Muay Thai in Bangkok's backstreets, hiking across rooftops in Stockholm and Arctic adventures in northernmost Canada, through to drumming at the Gathering of Nations festival in New Mexico and bareback horse racing in the mountains of Georgia.  I think it's fair to say we enjoyed shooting this one for WSJ Custom Studios & Casual Films.
