This short film is rooted on my love for skateboarding.The idea started when I was working on this graphicproject, as you can see from the illustrations below.The graphic project is a play on words with a simplecomedy premise -skateboards making love- that seededa question in my mind: How did these skateboards meet?The answer to this question is the backbone to our story.
NY is a city of contrast, at times it mayseem extremely raw and two seconds later,it may reveal the perfect spot for a lovestory.With all its surprises, NY is the city of allcities. The best place there is to skate.
Andrew and Claudia are two of the thousands ofskaters living in NYC. Their love for skating will bethe catalyst for their encounter. After a smallaccident where the two skateboards crashed intoeach other. Leaving Claudia wondering when shewould see Andrew again.Two long days later they finally meet again, andeverything makes it seem they’re going to hook up.But this is not a typical love story, because the onesthat fall in love are their skateboards.
