Over Ply Wood x Ratbite zine

11 Mar

With the release of the Over Ply Wood dvd just round the corner I thought it would be a good idea to make a zine to go with it. I asked Twiss if he would be up for doing a collaboration and he was well up for it…he is over in Australia so its been a bit of talking over the net combined with good old fashioned cut, paste and post. Twiss put his artwork for Ratbite 17 together with photocopies, printouts and glue and mailed it over to me in Wales. Our idea was to make 2 zines in one and print them back to back. My portion is an A to Z of Over Ply Wood from old photos I was given and lent to make the film to photographs I have taken on recent skate trips with Team Boyo, there are clippings, articles, posters and images from the making and showing of the film. I am sending the master of the film off today to be printed up into 500 copies of Over Ply Wood….a scary moment as the whole project is self made and self financed….I have relied on the generosity of all the contributors over the 3 years it has taken me to make the film. Now i’m hoping I can get enough people to buy the zines and dvds to cover the cost of putting the whole project together….maybe I should have approached some energy drink companies to get the dough but then again who needs big business?! Do it yourself….I hope it works!!
