Leica Presents “Let Us Roam” Short featuring Greg Hunt
After having considered the likes of Ray Barbee and Arto Saari, Leica continues on its outstanding “Let Us Roam” series of short films with a segment on filmmaker Greg Hunt. The elder generation might remember Hunt as having a starring role in Stereo’s Tincan Folklore, yet for many, Hunt is the visionary behind some of skateboarding’s modern classics – Mind Field amongst them. His signature aesthetic can be recognized by use of Super 8 and Bolex 16mm footage, which is a rarity in today’s increasingly HD-driven cinematography field. Watch the above as Hunt details his very first memories of skateboarding, how Jason Lee influenced him, and his approach to Vans’ forthcoming full-length video.
