Welcome to Turtle Productions second full length video, filmed and edited by Lucas Jankoschek, Vienna represent!
We’re big fans of Lucas and his crew, so decided why not hit him up to get an inside take on the video? The Vienna scene is dope as hell, plus these stories of run ins whilst out filming are too good not to share with you all!
What’s the origins of Turtle Productions? How did the cartoon turtle come about?
Back in my schooldays people would randomly start to compare me with a turtle. Either I was eating like a turtle, acting like a ‘real turtle’ or carrying my huge camera bag like it was my turtleshell, which by the way must have looked really hilarious in comparison to my below average size at that age! Around the same time I had already been filming and editing a little bit. Some years later when I finally got a VX1000 I wanted to give my videos a kind of personality. It didn’t take long to decide to go down the ironic route and call them Turtle Productions.
“it was a bit tough to be the filmer dude for almost the whole city… but it turned out to be a perfect reflection of the Viennese skateboarding scene”
How was the process filming for this video, was it planned at all?
Usually I film with a small crew to do some Turtle clips here and there, but most importantly I wouldn’t have any bigger missions or projects to work for. Since my last full length (The Turtle Video) was two years ago I decided to start another one. It was clear to everyone from the beginning that I was working on a new full length. After some time more and more people took notice that there was new video coming up and so I got them motivated enough to get some tricks for the video. Although it was a bit tough to be the filmer dude for almost the whole city I would say that the end result turned out to be a perfect reflection of the Viennese skateboarding scene as well as the spots and the city vibe. Right what I wanted, that’s why I am really satisfied with the outcome.
