Wiskate.com 18 year anniversary journal entry #2.
The last post covered the boring nerd crap about the site. This one is about the videos.
Over the ages I’ve made a few full length videos, and a metric crap pile of web clips. A lot of my best times on this planet have been out there skating with my friends and making skate vids.
I chose my one favorite clip I filmed of any particular human, and put them into all into one video. This footage spans 15 years, many humans, many tapes, and less cameras than one might think. I didn’t think about the choices too much, just gut feeling.
A compilation of Handy footage taken from 2012-2014. A lot of this footage was wasted on Instagram, and per the nature of the medium, probably forgotten about mere seconds later.
I made the chronological successor to Handy awhile back. IPHONE TRASH. A collection of Cream City footage that was mostly all wasted on Instagram as well.
Finally, a short film made this past Saturday at Estabrook park. A snow storm was a-brewin’ and we had to get in where we fit in while there was time. 24 degree trust exercises, friendships were strengthened, men became men.
This past weekend Vince, Chase, Sleepy and myself piled into the van and made our way to Omaha for the 5th Annual Reggie Destin memorial time trials and carve contest. There was tons of beer and tons of donuts, needless to say a good time was had by all. Huge thanks to Steve, Jeff and Kevin for such a great time for a great cause, can’t wait til next year! Here’s a video Peter Jedruski put together of the event.
