"OUT OF THE LOOP" / Corey Henderson / PREMIERE

If Corey Henderson's name rings a bell to you, maybe that has to do with how he's the author of the "Trabajando" video series, which LIVE has brought up before. Most notably, we'll send you back to the Paris segment, and Graham Thoms's section in "TRABAJANDO 4", not coming without an in-depth, joined interview with both the skater and the filmmaker, just because!

Anyway, Corey is still based in Chicago and, despite his yearly routine of traveling to Europe (especially Barcelona, his crew's connection of choice) to film, he didn't go to in 2019 which, in fact, didn't deter him from directing a new project... And going for something unique.

"OUT OF THE LOOP" (available for download, here) consists in fifteen minutes of skateboarding not in, but around Chicago, in the outskirts - namely in the cities of Oak Park, River Forest, Berwyn, Cicero and Forest Park. What originally started out as the concept for a more humble solo project only grew exponentionally bigger as Corey's crew really came through with the motivation he needed to bring a full montage to completion (that's including the soundtrack, all original and also orchestrated by Corey), as well as their shared thirst for spots of a special kind - one that Corey himself recounts, below...

Graham Thoms / "Trabajando 4" / INTERVIEW

The Loop - you're either in, or out of it. But Graham Thoms is special as he's from there aka. Chicago, Illinois, a location with an equally special place in his heart; armed with not just "street cred" but a true urban upbringing, and the friendliest, most optimistic attitude to boot, he's been spreading Chi-love a big chunk of the old continent over as he's been fascinated by it, regularly taking trips to (and filming parts in) Barcelona for years until he eventually made the move for good and relocated to Paris, France. Now an international spokesman from My Kind Of Town, together with his homie Corey Henderson, they've been dropping full-length indie vids under the alias "Trabajando" on a strict annual basis for a few years, intertwining footage from foreign lands with their super strong hometown clips. The fourth installment is now dropping; and the winning duo was kind enough to grant LIVE Skateboard Media the diffusion of two of its segments: the Paris part, and Graham's (incredible) part. Not just that, but they also felt like contributing with words of love and boys did they have plenty to give.
