Though we never released the official transcripts, there was a QS Board meeting this past winter than rendered the era of the five-to-six minute web montage completely, like, ~over~. With Instagram videos reaching one-minute durations now, we’ve come full circle in that dudes can basically break through with about as much footage as they would have needed for a 411 “Wheels of Fortune” in 1998. Hoarding clips from February until Memorial Day for a mega montage seems like something that made more sense in 2010 yaknow? Quick “logs” makemoresense, and here’s some stuff that didn’t make a lot of those aforelinked #logs yo. Jk, the “End of Summer” clip will probably be fifteen minutes long ;)
Enjoy your long weekend. How great is actual summer :)

PEEP THE ILL ANGLES FAM. In skateboarding, the dolly shot is “the Ty Evans shot.” Above, is the Quartersnacks shot. We have officially contributed to skateboarding’s cinematographic lifeblood. Or something.
Threw a bunch of shit from the past three weeks on a Final Cut timeline over one of Lil’ Boosie’s more triumphant songs. Us having not used a Boosie song for a clip since “Wipe Me Down” was out in the summer of 2007 (isn’t it great how clip posts used to go up at 2 A.M?) is more embarrassing than having used only one circa 2009 Gucci Mane song. Features John Rulez, Josh Velez, Tyler Tufty, Zered Bassett, Sketch Sketch, Matthew Mooney, Haffa, and a Mexican guy with a cart full of cans.
The QS3 companion piece. The spring collective. The-skating-in-SoHo-at-2-AM-and-getting-eggs-thrown-at-you documentary. The tradition of dirty lenses. Doing this for Memorial Day weekend, whether you’re spending it on your board, at your grill, or in Seaside Heights with the homie, The Situation. The 48 hours promise was a bit off, but you know how that goes. There’s another one around the corner (ok, well maybe not around the corner, but a few blocks down. So if I have footage of you, and it’s not in here, it’ll be in the next one. You know who you are.)
