Soap shoes. That word, to me, evokes so many fond memories. The long summer days we spent with UKFSW, filming and photographing, travelling the country in search of that perfect rail. Man, we had some awesome times; times that defined great chunks of my adolescence, nontheless.
And back in the day it was, for us, the internet that played such a big role in the whole Soap shoe buzz. I grew up on DetroitFSW.com, Dave's videos inspired us all. Soapshoe.com was where it was at though, BrooksFSW.com following in it's footsteps; heck, I used to log onto that site every other hour. Relate Videos, DEOS, RSC, AthensFSW, Tallahassee Soap Shoes. Names that will strike a familiar chord with many soapers out there. Names that will now go down in history.
Thank you Greg, Derek, Alexei; faces I never actually met, but knew. And Tanner, who we met during his visit to London. Thank you Mart, Fordy, Louis, Jim and all the rest of the UKFSW crew that came and went throughout the years. Thank you Chris Morris, inventor. Thanks for all the memories.
What am I saying exactly? Although I'm not brave enough to admit it outright, the Soap shoe buzz is all but over. SolidGrind.com has bitten the dust. UKFSW hasn't met for over a year. We've all moved on to other things, but that's life. Natural progression and all that.
Just one thing though. UKFSW was always about the 'media'. Over the years we amassed innumerable hours worth of video footage (the DV tapes create an impressive stack on my desk, even today) which was going towards our ambitious untitled video project. The project that, despite good intentions, never happened, leaving many people wondering if UKFSW would ever resurface.
Well, we put in too much effort, spent too much money, racked ourselves too damn hard for this video not to be seen by anyone. So this is a formal announcement from myself, UKFSW and Soapshoes.info, that the project is back on. Maybe once this video is finished, I can finally leave my Soap shoes in the closet.
Before you ask, there's no release date as of yet. Let me stress that we haven't even begun trawling through the hours of video footage, so be patient. Suggestions, comments, help is all welcome. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further news will be posted here and on Soapshoes.info.
