Cross Stitched

weaving the worlds of style and sport

The Cinematographer Project is everything that is right in skateboarding

The first thing I did this morning was download the HD version off itunes. Already I’ve watched it twice, and for good reason. Transworld has always put out great videos but this one is a landmark for future films. The focus was on style, and innovation, specifically set on the filmers, rather than the skaters. Although, when you get the worlds best filmers involved, the talent isn’t too far behind. 

Each of the videos 145 skaters presents themselves in their own fashion, laying down heavy tricks one after the other. Not one section is a filler. Standouts include the Alien Workshop team riders(their end section will blow your mind), skate mafia crew and the Real team. 

But the real focus of this project was on the filmers. And each did an amazing job putting together their own part. I was a little worried about having each filmer working on one section. I thought it would make the video feel too broken up, but surprisingly enough the video flows well from section to section.

If you were on the fence about this one don’t be. It’s going to be one of the best videos of the year, if not the best. And if you were already planning on getting it, don’t waste anymore time, it’s well worth it.
