Monster Children caught up with Campbell for in interview to learn more about this forthcoming project.
I think it’s [skateboarding] at this really beautiful point right now. People’s approach, they’re just like, “Yeah whatever, I’m gonna wallie off this.” People like Evan Smith just don’t give a rat’s ass, he’ll just do anything he wants, whenever, he doesn’t care and I love that because that’s what skateboarding is: freaks just doing whatever the fuck they want…
Anyway, skateboarding is at a really great point, and [this film] is almost a celebration of what it is.
