San Francisco filmmaker Ivan Narez gives us a little insight into the filming process for the fifth Valo team video and explains how his moustache got him into trouble in Mexico.
Don’t be fooled by the incredible facial hair and fierce Latin stare, Ivan Narez may look like a stereotypical South American criminal mastermind but he has never been involved with an international narcotics ring or people smuggling – that we know of. He has, however, been responsible for some pretty amazing rollerblading videos over the past nine years including the highly popular Hyphy trilogy, which he created with one of the Bay Area’s most recognisable professional bladers, Vinny Minton.
Since their last video venture in 2006, Minton has started his own company, Imperial Productions, and Narez has proven himself to be one of the most talented videographers in the rollerblading industry. In 2009, he released Shred ‘Til You’re Dead, an engaging tour video that followed Jeff Stockwell, Erik Bailey, Chris Haffey and a selection of other gifted park bladers as they travelled more than 3,000 miles in search of the best outdoor facilities California, Idaho and Oregon has to offer. Just one year later, he released the fourth Valo team video, Valo4Life, which is arguably the brand’s most accomplished offering to date. This year will see the release of not one, but two videos from the California filmmaker, as he is currently working on V, the fifth Valo team video, and he has already finished production on Shred ‘Til You’re Dead 2. It looks like it going to be a busy year for Narez, so we decided to find out how it is all going so far.
