The film showcases the photography of Nils Svensson (Malmo), Stu Robinson (Belfast), Alex Irvine (London), Rich Gilligan (Dublin), Sergej Vutuc (Heilbronn) and Bertrand Trichet (Barcelona/Tokyo), while also giving us an insight into the different approaches used by this diverse line-up of photographers.

Philip Evans (1982) is a filmmaker and artist currently residing in Bray, just south of Dublin, Ireland. This small town is where Phil discovered the magic of skateboarding and developed an inexplicable compulsion to produce a near-endless stream of skateboarding videos and silly images. His last video, The Scrum Tilly Lush (2009) documented the everyday skating habits of pro skateboarders in 11 different locations around Europe. Phil's work has been exhibited all over the world and has been inducted into the Municipal Art Collection of Waterford City. He is part of the Human Pyramids Artist Collective.
