In Southern California, “Skateboard Mom and the Sisters of Shred” is an all-female group of hundreds of avid skateboarders — some of whom didn’t pick up the sport until they were in their 50s! I served as director of photography and colorist for this short film for AARP, formerly known as the American Assn. of Retired Persons. It’s part of their “Fearless @ 50+” campaign, and was picked up by ESPNw. With more than 3.5 million views on Facebook and half a million on Youtube, these inspiring ladies are achieving a new brand of “air time”!


This production was shot with a Canon c300.
