On the subject of videos. Some of my Favourite videos are Bones Brigade Video Show and Blind Video Days. They may appear as fuzzy relics to today’s skaters but these were the videos that started it all. Bones Brigade Video Show was the first real skate video. Previous to that it was mostly filmed contests. It was the first video that had most of the elements of some of the more successful videos that followed, the skits and the fun feeling that others try to emulate. Blind Video Days also shaped modern videos, as lot of that footage is filmed with bro cam the mainstay of most modern videos and web clips. The videos became a longer term project. Lance Mountain, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze and others talk about these groundbreaking videos and others. Insightful.

The new Transworld video Hallelujah is due out US Summer 2010 (NZ Winter 2010) featuring Ryan Decenzo, Pete Eldridge, Taylor Bingaman, Tyler Bledsoe, and Torey Pudwill.
I had heard Stay Gold the new Emerica Video was due out around the same time but Reynolds on the Emerica Website says he’s halfway through filming, and he’s not sure of the date.
On a local front, Oamaru filmer Colin Evans is storming up the East Coast of the South Island filming for “South in Your Mouth”. Here is an old but funny clip of when they turned up to skate someone’s fourteen stair and there was a kids birthday going on. Not sure what the release date is on that.
