I feel like Ty has been straight up with everyone here. He admits freely that he's not us. We are motivated by our love of skating - nothing else.

Ty's not solely motivated by that. He's interested in making films. He's focused on his career. He's trying to find a way to stay creatively engaged and make a living. He made some pretty fucking good skate vids along the way, and as it turns out, MJ's footy wasn't deleted after all, so...

"Thanks for the vids & good luck bro," seems like a more appropriate response than "fuck Ty," but maybe I'm just missing something.
Agreed.

Right after I read the interview I had a feeling that the MJ/TY delete story wasn't accurate. Half the interview MJ seems to be mentioning he was out of mind on booze during FF. How could Ty have the pull to make other filmers delete their footage and why would Carroll and Howard even let any of this happen under their roof? I think some of you are giving MJ a little to much credit since he is one of the best to ever step foot on a skateboard.

Fongstarr.

This place is definitely Duffel level.

Ty sorry, Pretty Sweet was dull and Fully Flared too.

May be all the filming pressure results in videos that aren't much fun to watch either.

Hope their next filmer gets the spark back.

I can agree on Pretty Sweet to a degree but regardless of the reasons why people hate Fully Flared, I still think it is one of the best videos of our time and I doubt it could have been that way unless Ty pushed all those guys to do it. Probably something that won't be appreciated till all those guys are well at the end of their careers.

Yeah pretending that Fully Flared wasn't amazing is so 2009.

@QUIT SINNIN there's tons of pressure put on pros to perform from TMs, owners, filmers but honestly most of it is internal. Some dudes react like MJ and some react like Pops. High expectations can produce some really monumental stuff. Look at Ternasky (rip).

I agree with that completely but you shouldn't feel like your spot on the team/place in skateboarding is on on the line if you don't perform, which over the years and interviews I've read about FF it comes off that way.
Yeah 'cause dudes are getting kicked off left and right from Girl/Choc for not producing.



Ahahahaha fucking gold.

Ahahahaha fucking gold.

You're a fucking retard if you honestly haven't taken into consideration the implications of a production on the level of Fully Flared and the mentality of some of the skaters involved. Have you not read/watched any interviews about the fucking video?

What? I didn't 'break' it, I was just testing its durability, and then I 'placed' it in the woods because it's made of wood and I just thought he should be with his family.

Yeah it seems like people on here automatically take his perspective as the truth just because they love him on the board.  Since he says that he was drinking a majority of the time he was filming, it definitely is a huge possibility that he has some shit distorted.

the way i see it is Marc Johnson filmed a part and wished for it to be in the enjoi dudes vid. Rick Howard was psyched on the idea, and then without consultation, Ty Evans had it pulled. Now if that is all true, theres not much you can say that will change my opinion regarding Ty Evans being a sack of shit.

First it was deleted now it was pulled... Save your judgement for when you actually see the part.

And to say Rick or anyone at Girl was psyched on MJ putting out a part for another board company at the same time as his FF part is a bit of a leap. FF was a huge investment of time, creativity, and resources--everyone wanted it to shine as much as possible.

Whether or not the part is groundbreaking, it should have been released in some capacity if that is what MJ intended and Rickk was okay with it.  Even if the part is not on par with his FF part I'm sure it would have been a joy to watch.  He has one of my favorite styles in skateboarding and even a mediocre part from him would be more coveted to me than a full fledged part from other top tier pros.  If anything, that would leave me wanting more which would have been delivered by FF.

Also, I feel as if credence should be given to the skateboarder in the production of video parts.  So if he made the tricks, he should be able to dictate how they are used as after all the video part should be a reflection of the skater themselves, not the filmer (although I understand that it is a filmer's job to have input into the direction of the whole project).  Weren't there rumors of MJ having 23 minutes of footage to choose from???

yea seriously, where's that footage? he must have 10 more mins of footage if that numbers true. he only released a couple mins of bonus footage from fully flared. I'd watch a half hour mj b sides

one was my hero ("the storm" times...) before i actually saw his pro shoe and got my 2nd skatevideo (compared to ty who made some of my favourite skatevideos including fully flared and then kooked it out totally), the other one was a guy i never took seriously. maybe its more of a personal reference. i somehow feel bad comparing scott and commercialD though.

Incomplete Ty Evans Crimes Against Humanity list:


1. Trying to make MJ delete a part. (How "good" Ty thinks the part is remains irrelevant. It's a fucking MJ part. Also, that it survived was clearly a
fluke so he deserves the shit he's getting for this.)
2. Leaving that Gino Seaport line on the cutting room floor.

say what you will about Ty but he helped shape the past 10+ years of skate videos and created some of the most iconic videos around. the fully flared/pretty sweet hate is all about personal taste but generally speaking this is the direction their videos have had for a while and it worked great for the companies. times are changing and people have to adapt whether or not we personally like every decision.

That's fair.  I had to refresh my memory on who he was.  You can find him on a scooter here:
