Conversation: David Benedek
Recently I’ve wanted to start doing some more visual interviews with people who roll through the studio. Rather than just a standard Q&A, or a still photo, I wanted to use the internet to its fullest and get a little more personality out of the interviews. Sit down style, one-sided conversations.
The first victim is Pro Snowboarder/ filmmaker David Benedek for YoBeat (portrait above by Brooke Geery). David hails from Germany and speaks English better than most of the people in Portland. He was in town for a Bonfire photoshoot and since Bonfire is a few blocks from our office, he was nice enough to stop in. David is the mastermind behind such snowboard films as 91 Words For Snow and In Short, and was the first person to land a double-cork 1260 on snow.
Since David is a darn smart dude, and had a lot of good shit to say, this interview is broken up into two parts. Part One focuses on Snowboarding specifically. Part Two touches on filmmaking, new media, and more. If you’re into snowboarding and or media/film/internet, you might find these interesting.
You can check them out on YoBeat here or watch them below after the jump.
