It’s a Rough Life: Roughside of the Trax Complete

It’s a Rough Life, a reality series about Johnny Roughneck.

Johnny flies to Salt Lake City to host “Rough Side of the Trax 2″ — his event where kids barge the trains to skate spots across the city. This is the complete story arc, a combination of three webisodes.

On day one, check out the behind the scenes leading up to the event and see Johnny’s Utah digs. Then Johnny heads to SLUG Magazine (Salt Lake Underground) to meet the crew. On day 2, the “Rough side of the Trax” contest gets started. But not without some drama with one of Johnny’s Sales Reps who shows up riding the competition’s product. After that is sorted out, the Roughnecks head to registration and then all the riders head out to the train and the first spot, Dead Goat Ledge. Then it’s on to the Wave, but the Roughneck crew has a little trouble on the way. Eventually the skating goes off at the second spot, and the contest rolls to the U where the Salt Lake City skaters take turns throwing tricks down a big set of stairs. After the last spot it’s off to the afterparty behind the Fice Boutique for the winners ceremony.

Make it Happen: Lost Film Fest

This video was produced for our Make It Happen Project.

Make It Happen is a series of short documentaries profiling creative people pursuing their dreams through projects with DIY roots.

We wish that this documentary came close to capturing the carnival atmosphere of activism and underground culture swirling around Scott and Liz. If they ever roll through your town, you must check them out. Until then, enjoy.
