QUIK from Colin Kennedy on Vimeo.
I saw this on foxisblack.com and totally loved it... or what I got to see of it as my internet connection grinds to a halt between the hours of 2000-2300hrs. I finally got to see it this morning... and it was well worth the wait.
I love skateboarding videos and this one it up there as one of the best I've seen in a while. I like the fact it is shot from a moving car... the juxtaposition between Austyn Gillette on his skateboard, the pedestrians we see passing by and Colin Kennedy and his film crew in their car is definitely an interesting one.
As the blurb says...
QUIK is a collaboration between theberrics.com and Quiksilver. It's a film shot exclusively on the sidewalks and streets of Los Angeles giving an unprecedented look into the world of street skating. Captured entirely from a moving vehicle, the film follows Austyn Gillette as he skates through the neighborhoods of LA's historic east-side and downtown at top speed.Lovely.
