shut the fuck up Evans you stupid cunt, you can say there's more to it and we weren't involved, but as far as I'm concerned, if there were a part that the skater himself was psyched on, as well as the owner of his current company at the time and old company too were all psyched on, the. You're an absolute dickhead, fuck you

This is possibly one of the most embarrassingly naive and misguided posts I've ever read here.

Fuck off asshole. Name one thing I said that hasn't been backed up by interviews from skaters themselves?

Okay, obviously Fully Flared wasn't THE video that set up the high pressure/expectations we see now, but it certainly didn't help.

Maybe MJ is overly sensitive, but I guarantee he wasn't the only one to go borderline crazy during FF.

If the skaters wan't to put enormous pressure on themselves and their video part, that's fine.

But it should never come from the filmers.

I think that mentioning a long-forgotten video part and having it (hopefully) showing up on the internet would be the proverbial icing. But I'm crossing my fingers for a Jake Johnson interview.

Theres plenty of those and more to come in the future. A current Blender interview, that would be the best thing to happen to skateboarding since the urethane wheel was introduced to it.

Carroll say he has the missing MJ part.

That part has a lot more mystique unseen. People will be underwhelmed, the best clips are in his FF part.

The worst thing about this isn't that you pulled such a dick move, the worst thing is that you put yourself and your 'vision' ahead of the talent actually doing the work. That you grudgingly cherry-picked the best parts makes it worse.

It's not easy putting films together, and shit gets heated. But you gotta realise that without the skaters, you have no video. Your attitude towards it all kind of shows that your work is about you, not the skating. That's sad, and it will hurt your career in the long run.

In short - you need skaters, they don't need you.

Honestly we all don't really know the whole story, Ty isn't telling us everything. There is probably more to it than we know and he doesn't want to bad mouth anyone, which would be smart. MJ said that around that time he was drinking a lot so maybe some shit is distorted but who knows

Ok, thats just wrong, if people really didnt need editors everyone wouldve loved extremely sorry. You need both for something good to happen. Theres nothing wrong with having a "vision" for what a video should look like because all the best videos usually have a solid concept but its another thing to not follow through with your vision and not make all that misery worth it for everybody involved.

The act of skateboarding for fun doesn't require filmers or editors but pros who want to make a living sure do. Companies to want to generate revenue so they can pay their pros sure do. When you look at the industry as a whole who is more in demand editors or pro skaters?

And everyone who was upset about that part that was forced into deletion, how deleted really was it?

@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).

so if this was marcs part, and he has thought all this time that it was deleted, why didnt anyone bother to tell him? obviously it was something he was really bummed about so just fess up and apologize for even suggesting that someone delete footage that wasnt yours in the first place and thank the lucky stars that carrol had saved it.

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.

I don't remember really but even talking about that wouldn't be cool. If it was a lot people would be fuck you for not using it, if it was a little people would speculate he was hurt, lazy, on drugs, whatever. Speculation fuels Slap. Just wait for an interview.

On Devine's Instagram in the comments of some of his pictures he talks about having injuries and that his family was going through somethings while filming for Pretty Sweet.

Shit I didn't know so many people in the industry actually care about the slap forums

Of course they do!  I think we'd all be surprised by how many "important" people cone here to read the gibberish we post, it's a great way to get the straight dope on general attitudes about shit in the industry from the perspectives of those who support it.

If the bigwigs aren't doing it themselves, they're having someone else check shit out here who reports their findings back later on.  It's all market research, happens in every industry.

yeah i would guess in the big days of the slap forum and the skateboard rumors website employees of companies were told to not post anything important on here and that they would be in some shit if they did. In the Mike Sinclair thread he talks about lurking the site checking stuff out.
