Miika Adamov on Miles Silvas:
How was the experience filming for this? You started a little later than Miles?
Yeah, I’ve only been filming for about two months or so. It’s been a little hectic. But on the plus side, I believe I already have an ender so to speak, so that’s one of the only reasons I decided to take this little challenge.
Now you just need filler. (Laughs) Yeah.
How would you describe Miles’ approach to filming a part?
Miles—he picks out spots and he just goes for them. He could skate anything and everything and it all looks comfortable and easy for him. He rarely ever doesn’t make his trick. A lot of people go to a spot, maybe try a trick for a while and then come back for another try later. He usually does his tricks like the first session he’s at the spot. He just handles it and makes it all look easy. You guys have been boys for a while correct? Yeah, I pretty much raised him (laughs).
Well, congratulations. You did a good job. Thanks.
What video and what part first comes to mind when you think of TWS videos?
I really liked Stefan (Janoski)’s Subtleties part. But since we’re on the “duets” topic—the first shared part that comes to mind is Brandon Biebel and Brian Wenning in Subtleties.
Skating alone or skating with friends? It’s better with homies on the session.
Best real life duet?
“Game I’m Spittin” by Dubee aka Sugawolf P and Mac Dre.
Favorite TWS video? Subtleties (’04).
