Checking Out The Illegal Civ Movie Motel w/ Mikey Alfred
Filmed by: Chris Whittaker, Alex Raspa Edited by: Elias Parise Mikey Alfred, the architect of World Star 4 Kidz (a.k.a. Illegal Civ), has had a busy year. He co-produced Jonah Hill‘s polarizing coming-of-age skate film, Mid90s, he wrapped up and released IC3 (Illegal Civ’s third full-length skate vid), and he put on a full-day music event at Los Angeles’ famed Pink Motel. Curious to see what this young movie head is like in person, we visited Mikey in LA to check out his crib. Unlike every other 20-year-old, Mikey lives in a building that’s otherwise filled with old people (which kinda explains his affinity for cardigans). He showed us some of his favorite memorabilia, challenged us to Connect Four (and lost), then drove us to Biebel’s Park to give us a taste of that real, indoor street skating life. The next day we swung by the festival he was throwing: “Red Bull Music Festival Presents: Illegal Civ Movie Motel” and ran into the most LA crowd we’ve ever seen. Think copious weed smoke, dad hats galore, and a nauseating amount of pastel-colored clothing or just peep the vid to see what we’re talking about.
