Artist/Filmmaker Thomas Campbell is a personal favorite of mine and I’m super excited to check out his latest film, Cuatro Sueños Pequeños, which is now available for pre-order and features the stylish skateboarding of Javier Mendizabal and Madars Apse. Visually, it looks amazing and pretty surreal. Peep the trailer above and pre-order the special DVD/Book here.
