Gone Fishing in Kansas City is a short video that spontaneously happened during a pit stop in Kansas City, Missouri while driving cross country on a road trip from Atlanta to Los Angeles.
Friends of mine were already a year in progress of making their own short film with very some talented skaters who had recently moved to town. When I arrived, the incredible atmosphere that was around all these characters in this time and place felt so strong that I felt it was important to branch off and create a shorter film around them, focusing on the living spaces and off time when they weren’t clipping up. To add to it all, this was during the spring, and encountered what felt like every dramatic season within a span of just three weeks. What resulted was an experience that still feels like a dream.
