GALLERY 27: Heroin - Dirty Dog

This captivating piece of gritty realism is a significant departure from Holden's familiar comedy style. A test commercial for Heroin skateboard, the film draws an analogy between the obsessive nature of skateboarders and the addictive nature of drugs. A skateboarder himself, Holden presents an alternative view to the typically cool, fashion-conscious approach of most brands. Filmed on a council estate using a documentary crew, and real people as opposed to actors, Holden provides a very genuine insight.
