At age twenty-five, Brian Gille is getting deeper into adulthood and still sorting out his priorities between pursuing skateboarding professionally and maintaining his dependable marketing career. Brian has been skating since fifth grade, and he’s good—but so are many others. In a sport that’s oversaturated with talent, he needs to assess his situation. Is professional skateboarding truly in his future? Is it his main goal? His post-collegiate life has him working in marketing full-time while skating in the evenings. Nights on the town, making travel plans, and being able to pay bills—all things he has grown accustomed to, and likes. He knows how good it is to be fully independent, but skating still remains his passion. Brian has seen his friends go pro and become successful, but has also seen many of them struggle; skateboarding alone isn’t enough. With a college degree and a solid job, he understands how fortunate he is. In a defining part of his twenties, he’ll have to think about what’s worth risking and what’s worth holding on to. Brian is a regular guy who loves skateboarding, facing a very real, life decision. The piece will follow him through his typical work week, and evenings and weekends skateboarding with friends. We’ll also showcase his older skate video parts to provide more context of the world he comes from. Throughout the production, we’ll check in with him periodically to better understand his rationale and feelings behind his decisions. We’ll see how Brian initially saw skating fitting into his life and how his view has changed, now that he has been able to make a good living in something apart from his passion.
