It’s the first video in our vault where no man or woman stands alone. Working together, we caught up with the star-studded cast to get the pros and cons of filming a shared part, their favorite Transworld videos, their all-time personal favorite duets and more. Sharing is caring.
TWS video #30 is our first official release comprised entirely of shared parts. Since the dawn of the TWS video via Uno in 1996 (famously containing the Penny/Rowley shared part)—videos like Feedback (AVE/Dill, BA/ Staba, etc…), The Sixth Sense (Kalis/Stevie), or Subtleties (Biebel/Wenning) have certainly contained marquis doubleteams—but duets is the first video in our vault where no man or woman stands alone. Sharing is caring. Working together, we checked in with each of the video’s dynamic duos—a few days from deadline, and about a month from the premiere in November 2018. The following were the notes from each pair’s new song. Let’s duet.
How has it been filming this part Robbie?
It’s been pretty sick. I probably should have taken it more seriously at the beginning. I didn’t really know how big of a deal it was. Now, towards the end I’m like, “I gotta get some clips.”
How’s Ronnie been doing?
Shit. Ronnie has like two parts ready already (laughs). I gotta catch up. He’s got amazing footage. It’s seriously insane.
Ronnie told me many times that you inspired him to start skating transition seriously.
When he was young, he would skate outside of Channel Street in the parking lot. I used to just talk shit to him all the time. Like, “You’re a pussy. Get in here.” One day he showed up and just started ripping. Hard. I was tripping out like, “What the heck did he eat?” Sometimes some friendly taunting is key? That’s how I learned. The older guys would talk shit to me.
What video and what part first comes to mind when you think of TWS videos?
Tom Remillard’s part in Perpetual Motion (’13). That’s the only premiere I went to for like a big video part.
Favorite shared part?
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting (’97).
Best real life duet?
June Carter & Johnny Cash, “Jackson” (’67).
Favorite TWS video? Perpetual Motion (’13).
