california is a place

California Is A Place is a cool sounding name for a talented collective of inspired and inspirational film makers. I love the idea of collaborative groups and sometimes wish that competition and the market place didn’t drive a wedge of insecurity between us all. If we all worked together more often maybe we could all produce something like this….

From Cannonball about a group of skaters who seek out empty pools to ride in the abandoned landscapes of the American dream gone broke to Scrapertown’s urban hero Baby Champ who gives identity, self esteem and a sense of purpose to the youth of Oakland through the highly specialised customisation of their push bikes.
