MORE SKATE VIDEOS! Hooray!
I've been asked to put some more things that have recently sparked my attention up on this blog today, and as no-one is here to stop me, I'm going to put up more skate videos. You know what they say, while the cat's away the mouse will saturate the cat's blog with videos that are probably incredibly boring for everybody except for the mouse (they do say that don't they?)
Rather than show you things that have recently caught my attention I've chosen to show you three of my favourite clips from over the past couple of years (I know, rebel!).
Below is an example of just how great a simple idea can be. It is a trailer for Almost Skateboard's video '5 incher'. They found something that was five inches and skated it, creating something that forces the skateboarders to think and skate creatively. This really stands out against the usual long handrails and big drops that are usually in skateboarding ads.

Below is a video by Etnies called 'Aimless'. Using three pieces of smashed-together-wide-angle footage they have created an experimental piece of film that will send your eyes in all different directions, probably never to re-align ever again (you'll need to make this full screen and give it a few minutes to warm up).

Lastly a collaborative effort between The Berrics and Gatorade. Filmed in one take using one camera, this just shows the technical and creative abilities of the directors, filmers and skateboarders surrounding the industry.
