Ye Olde Destruction: A Film by Thomas Campbell
Ye Olde Destruction: A Film by Thomas Campbell
For the last 7 years, Artist/Filmmaker Thomas Campbell has been making a self-funded skateboarding movie, mainly shot on a 16mm film — called Y.O.D. (Ye Olde Destruction) — with a solid grip of shredders building and skating DIY spots, some street skating, pools, and other stuff. The movie is really about capturing these skate sessions and the movement of “the life” and happenings in these situations.

Part of the theme and the vehicle that propels the film is the driving of two old cars — one 70s Cadillac and one black Ford station wagon — and two squads travel around in these cars skating, building spots, creating different skating scenarios, sometimes skating the cars and basically wilding-out in said cars. In some ways, the movie falls into the classic genre of the car movies movie-motif (Bullitt, Mad Maxx or Brown Bunny). Campbell has enlisted an A-list team of lensmen to help him capture the motion picture scenarios and shreddings — French Fred, Jon Miner, Mike Manzoori and Connor Wyse among others. The film also embodies a community — a community of outlaws nonetheless — but a community.
