“PENGDULUM is a short film intended to cast a light on the current
health of the skate scene in Reading, England, as well as shining a
light on some of the past luminaries of this virtually invisible scene.
I am extremely proud of the heritage of skateboarding in my hometown
and have always been inspired the older generation of tech
mothaf*cking G’s who hark from here. Moving in with Tom Hawes gave me
ample opportunity to break into his stash of old VHS scene vids and
crudely siphon them, allowing for a G’d up Timewarp twist amongst the
present day footage. ( Yeah, I’ve seen the Philadelphia Experiment).
Let’s take this shit back to ’97.
Largely filmed in Reading, London and surrounding areas.
Featuring Kelvin Wood, Eugene Ochieng, Simon Lewis, Damean Richardson,
Dom Henry, Alex Dyer, Jon Bale, Tom Hawes and many more.
THANKS!” -Dom Henry.
