Mehring’s Bearings: Behind the Scenes of Pretty Sweet.

Last October I was in LA for a few days and had the privilege to be around for some of the skits being filmed for Pretty Sweet. It was truly an honor to be allowed to witness these guys at work having grown up being inspired by them and seeing their positive creativity grow and change over the years. Here are some photos that I’ve been waiting to release until after the premier. Enjoy.
