‘Let’s Film A Montage’

No way there is a single person who checks this website and hasn’t seen the Tyshawn part yet, correct? Photo above by Dan Zaslavsky 📷

“Trust me, I tried to shoot it without getting down there.” New York magazine’s real-estate publication, Curbed, interviewed Atiba for a feature about Tyshawn’s Thrasher cover kickflip. (Though, based on some more precise intel, the gap definitely seems to be more than nine feet as outlined in the above article.)

Cooper Winterson’s new video, The Sex Emo Promo is half filmed around the vicinity of Cadman Plaza, and includes appearances from Nelly Morville, Evan Wasser, and a bunch more.

Speaking of Wasser, him and Nick Michel’s Frog for Thunder Trucks part by Daniel Dent is beautiful.

Orchard Skateshop Presents: ‘The Trail’

“The Trail” has — through no shortage of hard-wrung effort, we can be sure — accomplished the impossible.

Lee Madden and Orchard’s roster of mainstays (Sean Evans, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood and Brian Reid) have made a Boston skate video with no Eggs footage. No skate scene is without a riptide of a spot or two, but short of maybe Pulaski’s hold on D.C. skateboarders, Eggs’ magnetism is unbridled on the east coast.

All jokes aside though, “The Trail” is a follow-up to “EGG,” the all-Eggs video that this roster dropped this time two years ago, effectively purging their stockpile of footage from New England’s most famous skate spot, so that they could go ahead and churn out lines on Boston’s brick-and-granite side streets. The entire video was filmed in Boston proper, without taking a refuge for less traversed terrain out in the city’s suburbs. Filming and edit by VX Lee Madden, with 16mm by Vito Ramirez.

Frozen in Carbonite Presents… Song of the Summer x Video Part of the Summer 2021: Da Return

Words by Frozen in Carbonite

Early this summer, Hulu released a Rick James documentary — a tour de force that I cannot recommend highly enough. In addition to the “trip the fuck out” moment of James being in a band with Neil Young, the film features a number of “reenactments” using 3D computer animation. These reenactments depict some really wild shit, including, yes, a coke-fueled orgy.

You know — what summer 2021 was supposed to have been!

Run That Back Turbo: Sean Evans’ ‘GRACE’ Part

Even the kids are like, “Holy shit, look at that switch flip.”

Any astute QS reader is already familiar with Tim Savage’s Grace video, which arrived earlier this summer. (Jenkem has a full interview about it, in case you are uninitiated.)

Grace felt nostalgic-yet-current: a 38-minute runtime for a meticulously crafted local video harks back to period when attention spans were un-Instagramized, but the generation it introduces stakes their names well into the future. It is hard to remember what the last Boston video with this many new faces was, and should the Grace boys become the Boston version of something like the Sabotage franchise a few hundred miles south, everyone would be pretty ok with that ♥

F.T.I. Presents: ‘CLUB DRAGON’

Some of you might remember the “EGG” edit that graced the homepage of this website back in November of last year, which was an Orchard Skateshop production showcasing the new generation of talent coming of age at Boston’s premier ledge spot.

“Club Dragon” is the latest from that crew — except instead of a one-spot outing, the tricks honed at Eggs also make their way to an ensemble of New York City ledge spots and greater Boston locations that have become increasingly a go in the COVID age of lower security.

The video is edited by Myles Underwood, who just launched a Fuck This Industry webstore to commemorate the new project / brand / whatever they decide to turn it into ♥
