My first student film at New York Film Academy, September 2011. The premise was to shoot and edit a 2 minute silent observational film on 16mm B+W reversal film with an Arriflex-S camera. Sound was added in post. The film could be based on a person, place or process. I wanted to show the innate beauty of the art of skateboarding through the process of one skater's warm up session. From stretching, to just cruising around, to bonding with homies. It was very well received by my fellow students and teaching staff when it screened last month as an art piece that portrayed a beauty and grace seldom seen by the masses in the modern skate-age of stunts and commercialism. Starring skaters Pat Hoblin and Jean-Paul Lotz.
