Video Days: Behind The Blind Video TransWorld
In 1991, the 80s skate boom had burst, the United States economy was in recession and President Bush declared war on Iraq. Skateboarding was at a crossroads then, with fresh styles, new companies and young pros pushing past the old brands and tired heroes. With the rest of the country languishing in a funk of war and recession, skateboarders were celebrating the transformation of their own little world.
That transformation was documented in a video filmed and directed by a young photographer named Spike Jonze. Featuring Mark Gonzales, Jason Lee, Guy Mariano and the rest of the Blind team, Video Days captured the unique talents of a seminal group of skaters at a critical time in the history of modern skateboarding. ON delves into the making of one of skateboarding’s most influential videos with help from Spike Jonze, Jason Lee and others.
