Mike Torres One For The Road

December 8, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-12-08 at 2.50.51 PM

“2015 was filled with change and confusion for me. I relocated to a new city, eventually found a new crew of people to skate with, tried out MULTIPLE skate setups with varied success, and ended up developing a reoccurring shoulder dislocation problem. My 2016 started in a sling, with no other goals than to rehab my shoulder, and to film a section with Augusto. What I didn’t realize when I starting filming Goose’s profile, was how good he was at filming, how quickly I was going to rehab, and how fun aggressive skating would be again with a longer/rockered frame setup. This ended up being the perfect storm for being able to put together a section that I’m not afraid to say I am proud of. Whatever it is I lost in 2015, I found in 2016.” – Mike Torres.

Augusto Castillo One For The Road

“Augusto’s section started one night in January 2016 over some beers at a local bar in Bushwick. We knew we wanted to work together to make him a well thought out section as a stand-alone piece” – Mike Torres. Download One For The Road here.

For a large portion of this, Augusto was working second shift in midtown, which means he wasn’t getting off of work until 11pm, and I was working a 9-5, so the only way our schedules would line up for one on one filming is if we were putting in some seriously late nights during the week. This ended up giving his section a very special feel since we realized we had just as much (if not more) night footage as we did day footage.

There was a couple things I didn’t realize when we began this project. First was that Nate Moore had a ton of Super 8 footage of Augusto that he was willing to contribute, and second was that Augusto was SUPER good at filming. Both of these things ended up making One For The Road possible since Augusto basically filmed my entire part, and since Nate had loads of beautifully shot Super 8 footage that helped beef up the supplementary sections and give a wonderful aesthetic to the video. I think it’s safe to say, without this section, the video wouldn’t have happened” – Mike Torres.
