Keeping any physical media enterprise breathing in 2019 — even a zine — is an important, yet difficult job. We don’t need another long-winded rant about how social media “changed everything,” but we do need to remind those toiling behind skateboarding’s printed word that what they do means a lot to us. No Instagram account is going to lasso fourteen crews from fourteen different scenes, and tally up their visions for something as comprehensive as FIDDY.
On the occasion of their fiftieth issue, Skate Jawn enlisted videographers from all over the country to contribute a section to their Cinematographer Project x E.S.T. hybrid. Fiddy is a survey of skateboarding if you were to pare it down to the guys whose coverage mainly comes from homegrown zines and scene-specific videos.
