Watch the new Trailer:
The Skate Australia documentary has taken a long and hard journey, with blood, sweat and tears shed. Anthony Fricker who was the tremendously passionate director of Skate Australia, died on the 2nd of August 2009 in a downhill skateboarding accident while filming for his documentary. The Longboard community was struck with shock and grief. Anthony’s family wished for his legacy to live on with his dream project Skate Australia. So it was decided that someone had to finish his dream…
The film was still at a very early stage of post production and there were only two people with enough knowledge of the project to finish it. The Swedish twin brothers Jonatan & Sebastian Lundmark from Dampling Productions, who had been working closely with Anthony Fricker during the project. Three weeks after the funeral they took over the entire production and dedicated a whole year to finishing Skate Australia for their beloved and greatly missed friend Anthony.
Jonatan & Sebastian have also produced a 7 minute documentary ‘steep descent’. A very touching and insightful back-story regarding the circumstances around Anthony’s death.
