Branching out from skate videos has been pretty mind-expanding for this young director.
Oscar Hudson’s passion for filmmaking sprung from growing up in the London skateboarding scene. He and his friends would spend their spare time almost killing themselves on the city streets trying to film tricks for skate videos they’d never finish.
He eventually left London to train as an anthropologist after school, but never fully put the camera down during his studies. Anthropology fascinated him, but once he had his degree he was determined to become a full-time filmmaker.
Since then he’s been directing films for a range of online magazines (i-D, Dazed, GQ, Kinfolk), music videos and some shorts too, three of which went out on television as part of Channel 4's Random Acts series.
For the past year he’s been experimenting with all sorts of filmmaking techniques, one-shot films, flying-cameras, iPhones strapped to the back of SLR cameras and sheer road-mileage (for This Way Up he drove 2,500 miles in 7 days).
