Earlier this year Nick Boserio bursted on to the scene with his online video part from Alien Workshop. Skateboarder Magazine and Christian Senrud tracked him down to down for an exclusive interview.
So first of all, congratulations on having the only part in recent memory to receive 100% positive feedback on the SLAP message boards. How seriously do you take the internets response to your footage?
I suppose seriously enough in a way, it’s a pretty good representation of ‘the skateboarding community’ right? I dunno, it’s not going to change anything about what I do or what I want. Plus, it’s way better to hear that your friends are hyped rather than just some strangers on the internet. I dunno, haha.
Perfect answer. Where did you get your beard from?
From inside my skin.
What’s the gnarliest thing that’s ever gotten caught in your beard?
Haha, shit I dunno. Whatever stayed there the longest? It could be anything. Food, litter, other people’s beards etc. A lot of different kinds of food, ash for sure too. My biggest concern is milk. The idea of missing some milk seep into it and then it smell like cheese by the afternoon does not appeal. Like coffee in the stache or drippings from cereal spoons, you know?
I feel that completely. So, did you do the letter tracing at the start of the section?
No I didn’t, the guys at the Workshop did, which is really sick, when they told me they were doing titles and had a song in mind and all that shit, I was so hyped. I didn’t realize it was going to be like, Workshop-Workshop till then and for them to do that made it so much sicker for me, that I got to be a part of something the way they do it.
