Skate Vids - Night #1
(Part of The Mini Mini Series: Sportz)
Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
Since skate videos first emerged in the 1980s they have expanded into a global movement borrowing freely from the narrative, documentary and experimental film traditions while in turn influencing everything from video games to Hollywood blockbusters. Despite having entered the pop culture lexicon, skate videos remain DIY creations: in addition to landing tricks onscreen, members of a skate crew often pull double duty as cinematographers and editors. It is no surprise, then, that skate videos boast acrobatic camerawork worthy of an action flick. Hard-hitting one moment, balletic the next, these overlooked gems find meaning in motion. Skate Vids - Night #1 features classic skate videos from the 90s and 00s. Skate Vids - Night #2 highlights videos produced by and starring local skate crews. (70 min)
