1st and Hope by Elwood is a unique view of skateboarding through the lens of the Malloy Brothers as they capture Kenny Anderson and Brian Lotti roll through downtown Los Angeles. Kenny and Brian's afternoon journey begins with no schedule no urgency and no particular route, just the hope to make it from 1st Street to the Staples Center before the sun sets. This visual stream of skateboarding imagery is enhanced by the dynamic sounds of Beck. The "1st and Hope" soundtrack includes the highly anticipated Beck songs Nausea and Macadamia from Beck's new album, The Information. 1st and Hope delivers a view of skateboarding from a skateboarders perspective as Kenny, Brian, and friends, weave through the urban landscape of downtown Los Angeles.
