Running on very little sleep the artists tear down their show for the second time and depart for Austin, TX where they do it all over again just one last time and get in an other skate session with Michael Sieben before returning home and to their respective studios and jobs making stuff for the skateboard industry.
Now Playing: One Way Or Another: OWOA Part 5 of 5
Corey Adams was born in Vernon B.C in 1975, never owning a camera of his own he begged borrowed and stole as a teenager, just to have one to use. With this equipment he and his friends would film themselves skateboarding and doing other silly things like covering their faces in elastic bands and their arms in peanut butter. After years of this foolery he received his first job in film working in a special effects make-up lab in Vancouver B.C. Knowing nothing about the FX industry, he began by sweeping floors and taking out garbage. Slowly he learned the techniques and soon became one of the main artist in the studio working on several films including Scary Movie and Freddy vs Jason. After doing this for eight years the industry slowed down and Corey became a dishwasher. There he mastered the porcelain arts dreaming of making films on a bigger scale, still making shorts of his own on days off. It wasn’t until 2005 when some friends informed him of a contest called “The Fuel Experiment”. This contest would give ten filmmakers one hundred thousand dollars to make a short film with the chance for one of those films to be given a one million dollar production budget. His treatment was accepted and he and some others made a film entitled “Harvey Spannos”. This film went on to win the contest and he received a budget to produce a feature film entitled “Machotaildrop” which premiered at the 2009 Toronto international film festival to great reviews. Other notable projects include “Bangmaster Generals Warning” which he co-created with artist Jeff Halladay and the “Swamdonkey” series.
