Sometimes when the skater asks a filmer to film him navigate a difficult line of on board rolling and off board running, a filmer will show a great deal of apprehension and reluctance. Patrik Wallner, "the fisherman," is not one of these filmers. He takes every request, as challenging as they may be. While filming this line in Bangkok, at a fools gold spot that looks like it has much more potential than it actually has, Patrik somehow made it work, despite a slight slip due to the combination of water and the marble surface. I have already tried and failed to make this spot work, so this day I figured I'd try and document the difficult task that Patrik had in front of him. Fortunately, in the end, there was success.
I call Patrik the fisherman because he and michael mackrodt, the other star of this short film, have been making a series of short video parts that Patrik calls "fishing lines." To watch them, click the links below
Patrik has a really dope website that features all of his photos and videos that he makes. Enjoy
