Ray Barbee: LET US ROAM

An amazing short film by Truman Advocate Ray Barbee for Leica Camera: LET US ROAM project.

Ray Barbee is a legendary professional skateboarder from San Jose, California. He made his first appearance in the skate film "Public Domain" and followed it up with his most iconic video part in the movie "Ban This". Barbee's passion for music and photography was made accessible through skateboarding. Ray's short film illustrates his passion for creativity and the importance of passing those values on to his children. www.letusroam.tv www.leica-camera.com CREDITS: Production Agency: Helio Collective Director / Cinematographer: Christopher Murphy Producer: Zach Johaneson Line Producer: Chad Dawson Editor: Sam Hedlund Assistant Editor: Katie Roberts Colorist: Jim Menkol Sound Engineer: Jeremiah Slovarp Additional Cinematography: Adam Kirschhoffer / Greg Hunt / Sam Hedlund Camera Assistants: Nick Weber Motion Designer: Josh Davis Music: Ray Barbee and the Mattson 2 "Yeppers" Follow along at- http://instagram.com/letusroam

TheShhh-ow Gathering

Team BK put on an awesome event at the Boathouse Collective in Costa Mesa, CA called The Shhhow Gathering. The show brought together some of the industries most influential brands and shops during a busy and important time for many of us. Truman was fortunate to be a part, and hyped that our booth was next to our good friend Richard Mulder of Heel Bruise, too. Thanks Team BK for putting on a great event, and keeping the show going between storms.

Chad Tim Tim's Full Transmission Part

"He’s a trouble-maker. He’s a liar. He’s a former raver. He steals from his friends and almost “killed” one of them. And yet, according to his friends, he is simply the best dude ever. Not many people would be able to pull off having such a dark side while still being revered by their peers. But Chad Tim Tim really is one of the best dudes on and off the board." - Transworld Skateboarding
