LRG's In-house Director Of Photography, Kyle Camarillo sits down with CCS to discuss, Traveling, Film, and the upcoming release of our Full Length Video: 1947.
See excerpts below - The full interview can be read here.
SO KYLE, WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO?
I’m a photographer/videographer from San Francisco and I work for LRG Clothing. I handle everything media-wise for LRG skateboarding and also do some catalog and lookbook stuff.
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF THE MOST MEMORABLE PLACES YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN TO FILM FOR THE VIDEO?
I love Japan. We went there twice for this video and it’s always incredible. Food, spots, people. It’s just a rad place.
WHERE DID THE NAME 1947 COME FROM?
1947 is a slogan that LRG’s late co-founder, Jonas Bevacqua (1977-2011) has been putting into the brand for years as a tribute to his mother Helen. Her help and encouragement had a lot to do with LRG’s fruition. To LRG it means family. It’s the support, love, and respect we have for each other. We went back to the slogan for the video in honor of Jonas and his family, as well as the unity of our team and their connection.
DO YOU THINK IT MATTERS MORE TO HAVE HARD TRICKS OR UNIQUE SPOTS IN A VIDEO PART?
Neither. Just rad. More rad.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT A FINISHED PRODUCT?
1947 will premiere this October! Sooooo, SOON! Thanks CCS!
