Jim Greco’s “Jobs? Never!!” Premiere Photos
Wednesday evening, skateboarding’s finest made their way out to the Los Feliz Theater in Los Angeles to get a sneak peak at Jim Greco’s new film, Jobs? Never!!, as well as to celebrate his new pro model shoe by Supra. Jim has been known to switch up the traditional formula of a skate video by releasing interesting short films, this being no exception. Greco recruited filmmaker and long time skate photog Tobin Yelland to film the super 16mm footage as well as Joey Sinko who handled the digital side. Featuring the ominous backdrop of downtown LA paired with footage of Greco and Tom Penny skating Rome, this piece hit home for many and isn’t one to be missed. —Alex Papke
