My ongoing obsession with skateboarding continues to grow with this short film about a skate revolution currently happening in the Hungarian capital of Budapest. Taking it back to the street, the aim of life-long skateboarder Balaj was to get as many people interested in the sport as possible; both seasoned riders and newbies. The community quickly started to take notice and he applied for the Vodafone #Firsts sponsorship scheme, which helped support the regeneration of Europe's largest skatepark - mutually beneficial for the greater good.

This dynamic short features Balaj, his pals and around 150 local skateboarders, showing what a bit of hard work and determination can lead too; all set in the heart of Europe, to backdrop of beautiful architecture and historical landmarks.
