Late for Work, Rough Life Season 2 Finale

We have arrived! At the Hotel Utah? The end of BART Tour 2011? The end of Rough Life? Yes, Yes, and hope not.

Season 2 is a wrap. This episdoe gets us from the tattoo shop to the Hotel Utah with sick sessions at Town Park/ Hood Games, and Potrero Park in between. Johnny is Johnny, and this is the most BART Tour-esque episdoe of the season with longer skate montages, and we hope the feeling of being on the street level of the tour. By this point in the day we were EXHAUSTED. We’d been all over the Bay Area and our arms could barely hold up our camera rigs. As Johnny says, “I can’t believe it myself”, and that’s how we felt by the time we got to the Utah (and even now wrapping up the season).

It’s been a crazy ride producing the Roughneck web show. Our regret, if we had one is that we didn’t have the budget to stick on Johnny 24/7 for some real Roughneck hi jinx. Now our attention will shift to pitching Rough Life to cable networks so that we can get a budget to do it proper. Enjoy the last episode. Talk more soon. WE OUT HERE!

Johnny ditched the tour after the Richmond session. Turns out he met up with Paola at a tattoo shop in Oakland to get inked. Will anybody notice that he’s gone?

Season 2 of “It’s a Rough Life” is about the events leading up to and during BART Tour 2011. The stakes have changed for Roughneck and BART Tour is no different.

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

Could Be Worse

Like all episodes of Rough Life this one was a little hectic, a little disorganized, and a lot of fun to produce. One of the RNCK guys really was supposed to take Johnny to his “secret” mission, but everybody with a car had ditched the tour by that point. So it fell on us to get Johnny to his non-BART Tour destination. I kept asking him why we weren’t at BART Tour, and like Tyler thought that his “responsibility” for the street team answer was a bunch of bull. The truth is Paola’s tattoo episode from Season 1 was really popular, and Johnny wanted in on it. That’s pretty funny to me. @jeremeylavoi

Roughneck BART Tour 2010

Welcome to BART Tour, San Francisco’s closest event to the Warriors. We’ve been documenting Roughneck’s annual contest/pilgrimage/ takeover of Bay Area Rapid Transit since 2006. This year we introduced a Canon 7D into the mix. For credits click here.

File this under better late than never. Believe me, I’ve wanted to get this out there since the day after. Fortunately for us JADED had a really good year… unfortunately, that meant I couldn’t edit this until now. Happy late birthday Johnny!

Credits:
Tyler Moore killed it on the A1 with the death lens while I made my first attempt at shooting skating and verite documentary with the 7D.

Tyler handled the legit skate filming while I messed around with the 7D.

First stop: Richmond Park

…and a word from our sponsors

Next stop: Wastelands

Stallings destroyed it as usual.

Tyler Trick Tip from the Archives

That was some TeamJaded lagniappe that I found yesterday while searching through old footage for my new reel. It was produced as a trick tips pilot for the Yahoo! Current project. Unfortunately that project tanked before this piece made it to air. I guess it’s probably better that way, Tyler didn’t need to be on national television lower thirded as Sweat Dog.
