Speedway Mag The Greg Hunt Interview: Transworld to DC, Alien Workshop’s ‘Mind Field’, remembering Dylan Rieder & ‘Ninety-Six Dreams, Two Thousand Memories with Jason Dill

 

Our mate and occasional shop worker/opinionated high trouser enthusiast, Farran Golding, has published a lengthy interview to his Speedway Mag website chronicling the life and work of Greg Hunt.

 

The interview covers Greg’s early days in San Francisco as a sponsored skateboarder for Stereo, before quitting the pro ranks as his career seemed to peak to pursue cinematography. The interview goes into how Greg approached his first solo project, The DC Video, before delving into a myriad of behind the scenes information of the creation of Alien Workshop’s Mind Field – with plenty of stories about filming with Anthony Van Engelen and Heath Kirchart thrown in for good measure.

 

Greg candidly discusses his friendship with Dylan Rieder, sharing many touching stories of the times they spent together with particular focus on Greg’s short film for gravis footwear, dylan., which enforced Rieder as one of modern skateboarding’s greats.

 

Finally, the interview touches on Greg’s upcoming book with Jason Dill, Ninety-Six Dreams, Two Thousand Memories, which depicts their friendship over the last seventeen years.

 

There’s also plenty of photographic gold from Greg’s personal archive, scans from Workshop catalogues and numerous renowned photographers alongside a small selection of the Mind Field photo book unearthed (good luck finding much of it anywhere else on the internet.

Nice one, Alan.

 

“Dylan was someone I had, who was one of those friends who really loved you for who you are. He really respected you and you were really important to him. If you ask Van Engelen, Dill or anyone who knew Dylan they would say the same thing. He made it clear, in his own way, that you were special to him. A real friend of his. That’s something a lot of people don’t have. All my friends are special to me but I don’t have the ability to project that. Being a human is complicated. Dylan had this thing about him where he really loved his friends and his friends all knew. That’s one of the saddest things about losing Dylan. A lot of people aren’t lucky to have anyone like that in their life and when I look back– having a friend like that is what made those times so cool.”
