Coalatree en México City

A two week filming trip myself and Walker Ryan had planned to go to Mexico City ended up coinciding, almost perfectly date to date, with a trip clothing company Coalatree had planned to the same region. Needless to say it couldn't have worked out better we were all friends old and new. Everyday, for the most part, all of us were able to pack into a single van to go venture the streets.

We also had the opportunity to tag along with them on other non-skate related agenda they had carved into their schedule, the first visiting an urban community garden tucked away in a rough part of town. For me being able to see and hands on involve ourselves in the steps they are taking as a people to progress sustainable farming was inspiring. We also visited the Teotihuacán pyramids which can't really be described in words. Its simply one of those wonders that can only be translated by experiencing it in person. 

By the time it was time to go home the trip was without a doubt a complete success. This mainly due to the good company and hospitality from our friends both from the US and Mexico City keeping moral high and positive spirits.

Here is the edit from their trip which I contributed a couple small shots to. Allen Danze did a great job capturing and translating the feeling of the surroundings and the beat of the City in this unique packaged edit.
