The thing that always bothered me about “Day In The Life” sections is that they always seemed so planned and scripted. Like the camera guy comes in and “wakes the skater up”, they visit a couple cool spots, “accidentally” bump into all their homies, crack a beer and fade to black. So naturally (stupidly) for this segment, we did the total opposite and came in with absolutely no preparation or really any idea of what we should be shooting. I figured we’d spend a couple of hours and hang out – whatever Alex is doing that day, we would do it with him, whether that’s grabbing a coffee, listening to music or holding his groceries. Here’s just a small glimpse of time we spent over at his place in Brooklyn.
