From The Cottage

Hey Tiago,

I want to share a 'little something something' I have been working on. I teamed up with a local skateboard shaper 'Jimmy Kakanis' and created a short film about Cottage Skateboards, how it started and what it means to Jimmy to be able to create a job that incorporates all his lifestyle loves of skating and surfing here on the Gold Coast. Jimmy specialises in handcrafted and customised skateboards and has also dabbled in shaping handcrafted logs as seen in the film. Jimmy has been working on the Gold Coast, QLD Australia for the past three years.

After my last short HANDCRAFTED : Thomas Bexon I wanted to create more of a community feel showcasing the talented local artists currently living and working here on the Gold Coast. Jimmy is at the heart of this short documentary but I have made a point of using local musicians in the film. I have tracks from Sal
vadarlings and Fonz Whaler and also Josiah Birrell aka "GOVS" created the sound design for the film.

I hope you enjoy! Yew!!

Mick thank you for sharing!!!
