Last night we premiered Transworld Video No. 30, duets to a packed house at the Landmark Regent Theatre in Westwood.
Since the dawn of the TWS video via Uno in 1996, the TWS video legacy has grown into one of skateboarding’s biggest video catalogs. Helmed by Joe “Joeface” Monteleone and James Buchmann, duets is the first Transworld video where no man or woman stand alone, and features five shared parts from some of skateboarding’s biggest names. duets will be available on iTunes November 20th and shops across the globe in the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone who rolled out last night and made the night special.
A huge thank you goes out to Dickies and New Balance Numeric for supporting the video and an extra-special, even huger thanks to Dickies for hosting the premiere! The night would have been nothing without their support and we couldn’t be happier. Check some photos from the night and stay tuned on where and when to get a copy for yourself.
