"We Are Blood" Premiere Photos
Anyone who’s ever worked with Ty Evans knows that he cares. He truly cares. It doesn’t matter if you're an unknown flow kid or a top pro. Ty treats them all the same, he’s gonna put in the hours 'till you get the trick and make you look better than you could have ever imagined. For over two decades he’s been in the streets and still is down to get dirty. Not only is he the director of this "movie” he’s also the guy filming, driving the van, bondoing the spots and calling the skaters. He does it all. Why? Because he's a skateboarder. Where previous “movies” have tried to tell the true story of skating but often end up coming across very corny. “We are Blood” does it justice. A movie about skateboarders and how skateboarding is everything they live for. Shit, thats all stuff you already know if you are reading Thrasher. But it’s about time someone got the story right to tell the rest of the world! –Joe Hammeke

Neckface making calls trying to get a ticket
“Hello, can you get Neckface in?”
“Oh yeah, Dee too.” For the record everyone got in. It’s a movie about skateboarders, by skateboarders, and although the people in charge might not have had someones name on “the list” they quickly figured out that everyone outside knew each other and are friends and are therefore a part of this movie.
