Sometimes you hear a story that needs to be shared. York-based skateboarder, filmmaker and magazine editor Jonny Long has one of those stories.

As someone who actively supports and promotes the local skate community, Jonny discusses the importance of volunteers in providing opportunities to bring new people into the community. He tells us about how he went from skating as a teenager to making films to founding his own online skate mag The Vale, and how a series accident along the way revealed something that would change his life.

Most importantly, Jonny reminds us to stay positive and persevere through your struggles, and that with enough hard work and dedication you can build a career around what you love.

The film was directed, shot and edited by York filmmaker Ben Porter, with an original soundtrack composed by Ryan Noble and Josh Latham of Recount Archives.
