Thesis• To many, skateboarding is more than just a sport or activity, it is a culture. This culture has existed for many decades and has evolved over time. By creating a skate video, I plan on expressing this culture and demonstrating the changes that have taken place.
Quote• “Skateboarding is many things to many individuals. Pure and simple, it’s a healthy, radical art form. Skateboarding is the positive release of undirected explosive youthful energy. Skateboarding utilizes the ever-expanding environment of steel, concrete, plaster, or wood as its canvas. For pure spontaneous action, skateboarding is unequaled. The skater becomes one with his board, while the board in turn translates the language of the terrain.” -Dave Hackett
