I made this skateboard out of a 1970′s Tonka truck, I was living in Texas and sharing the freeway with lots of big pickup trucks with aftermarket bumpers that belong on tanks. I also was studying all the episodes of the TV show Breaking Bad as I appreciated the main character, Walter White making the decision to take control of of his life and the trajectory of it. I skated heavily in the 80′s and had a profound impact on my artistic perspective. This film was shot at the Astoria Skate park in Queens New York and the “skateboard” was more like riding a roller skate with a cement block attached to it. Thanks for watching.
