Only one at the skatepark today. Then again, who else would be skating in the afternoon sun on a weekday? Legs were tired, heat was insane and couldn’t really do much before the rain clouds started forming.

But it sure was fun.

And now for something that isn’t Ciplak related - the vid I did for #seniMAD for the Kakisenifest.

This was an interesting project that really meant a lot to me. We went out to interview kids from the projects and lower income backgrounds who were interested in the arts but didn’t have the means to pursue them. Their dreams were placed on a wishing tree at the Kakisenifest in Pavilion and people could make a pledge, be it money or tutoring the kids or donating instruments and other things.

As we interviewed these kids you could see that a lot of them had that yearning, that want to be pursue music, acting, dancing, and everything in between. A lot of people assume that these creative outlets are just something to do for fun but for some people it’s more than that and for some of the kids you could see it was a way out for them, to try and make their lives and their family’s lives better.

Art saves, people. It may not seem it, but it does.

Ben & CK as Ah Seng & Mark (i have no idea why I named them that) in Ciplak, selling their wares outside my local minimart.

Check out the flick for free at www.ciplakthemovie.com and check out their track in the movie ‘Hang Hero’ from the National Disservice album on the Ben’s Bitches MySpace page (link on the Ciplak website) and more tracks from the soundtrack on the Ciplak website.

For those that have seen Ciplak, whilst I did the main skating shots in the movie, the flip tricks and some of the close ups after I kinda injured my wrist (which I still have problems with to this day) were done by Paul Stewart, who I still skate with today.

(And yes, I know it doesn’t make sense to be popping flip tricks whilst being chased by car).

Hey look, kids! It’s Tony Pietra Arjuna!

This was one of the magazine articles created for Ciplak for his character, Azri - an experimental filmmaker who’s really just making up random shit and selling it off as high-brow art with a deep symbolic message.

There’s stuff like this and more under the ‘Bonus Features’ section of the website, so go check it out after watching the movie at www.ciplakthemovie.com
