Ambivalence ~ Is a state of having simultaneous, conflicting feelings toward a person or thing. Stated another way, ambivalence is the experience of having thoughts and/or emotions of both positive and negative valence toward someone or something.
The story behind the project:
My original plans for this project were to promote skateboarding not so much as a sport but more of a lifestyle. I aimed to reach out to the growing community of skateboarders and shed some light on this incredible sport.
I focused not so much on the feeling of skateboarding but more so the freedom of speech and the positives that come from skateboarding.
For the last few years skateboarding and filmmaking have played a huge part in my life. I wanted to get Adelaide, my hometown on the map! This was my way of doing that.
Attempting to educate the members of society that often cast a negative view on us as skateboarders and hopefully shed some positive light on this wonderful thing. That is skateboarding.
