CRITICAL SLIDE ~ KAIUS POTTER

Here at Critical Slide we are supportive of all those doing things with a hands-on attitude. Perfecting their craft by any means neccesary. Kaius Potter has made a name for himself at the young and tender age of 23. Kaius has been creating surf/skate based films for quite some time, which has now led him into other aspects of film from music videos to fashion based film. A humble young creative with a style of his own.
 
Recently Kaius and his partner Sasha Brown have returned from a lengthy period in Europe, where they accompanied each other through small French towns for a number of months. Sasha - a developing young writer documented the trip in a journal whilst Kaius documented on Super 8. "From north to south".
We caught up with Kaius to chat the project and life as of late. 
 
 How old are you?
23 
 Where did you grow up?

On a small farm behind Lennox Head.

How was it growing up in a small coastal community?

The older I get, the luckier I feel to have grown up there. I was more or less landlocked on my family's farm until I got my license, so I spent hours messing around with cameras and finding anything creative to entertain myself. Once I could drive, my whole world became centered around the surf. I was lucky my parents weren't strict because if the waves were good I'd just skip school. It was a fairly loose and alternative upbringing that nurtured creativity. 

 
The last year has seen you travel around the globe where have you been?

I've been based out of London the past year with my girlfriend Sasha. Between jobs we found ourselves traveling Europe whenever we could. We moved over knowing one person between us, then through her, became friends with a group of fun and creative people. It was one of those sink or swim situations where we were definitely out of our comfort zone.

You and Sasha have recently worked on a project together titled 'From north to south' how has it been collaborating with your partner?
We are each other's biggest fan and biggest critique at the same time, so it definitely gets interesting. It is cool to be able to push each other across all of our pursuits but also feel really supported and celebrated at the end of the day.
 
 
How has it been branching into filmmaking?

I picked up a camera and started documenting all my friends who were surfers and skaters, so for me, it was the perfect medium to develop my craft. Through this, I was able to teach myself and experiment with a DIY attitude which has now taken me around the world, working on things that are different and exciting every time.
