It is no secret that we here at PLACE are big fans of Stephen Ostrowski and via Mr. Ostrowski we became more familiar with the work of Cooper Winterson.
Last year saw this really great collaborative project between Stephen and Cooper called ETHER. Mostly filmed by Cooper and edited by Ostrowski. It was a nicely done piece of work also showing the filmers skill in front of the lense.
Now, about 12 months later we get the next project which is very different from the last one, music-wise, spot-wise and vibe wise the focus is put towards different things. An interesting watch with some strong highlights.
Since the introduction and explosion of social media, every skater has turned into his or her own marketing machine with a great outlet for creativity.
Obviously, some are better than other some even turn into filmers, editors or designers later on in life. We feel this video By Cyrus shows promise, it has some noticeably strong minutes (especially in the beginning). But with anything in life don’t take our word make up your own mind.
Featuring: Cyrus Bennett, Aidan Mackey, Vincent Touzery, Logan Lara, Johnny Wilson, Max Palmer, Jesse Alba, Hjalte Halberg, Chris Milic, Paul Grund, Genesis Evans and more.
To you paying attention to our website this post will come as no surprise at all, we like this video and think it is one of 2016’s best. Maybe not if you only judge the skating but the overall flow, style and music selection (with some hard to find, locally produced tracks.) make this a video to watch more than once. Now finally the full project if out for all to enjoy.
With parts by Yaje Popson, Adam Zhu, Shawn Powers, Genesis Evans, Jason Byoun and with guest appearances by Alex Olson, Jesse Alba, Ishod Wair, Chris Milic and many more of your favorite New Yorks sons or transplants.
One and a half years ago Chris “mango” Milic was out skating with us in Berlin, He had a group of fanboys surrounding him and one of them asked him “What should people know about Genesis Evans?” and he answered, “That he is a much better skater than people think.” I guess since this dropped that q&a has become redundant because he shows his true colors in this part. Also, a shout out should be given to Emilio who made a great video with an equally great soundtrack.
Slowly but surely more and more parts of the Dany video are coming out. First came Yaje’s part than the extra’s came out and now Shawn Powers had his part drop on the internet. Let us be honest and say what is on a lot of peoples minds, Shawn’s focus seems to have been shifting from skating to making art and that isn’t a bad thing perse. But seems like it is not benefitting his skating all that much, this part still has some great moments though and the last clip especially shows us Powers’s skating at its best. At the same time, there are some questionable single tricks in there and we wonder if Shawn will ever be able to better his Caviar part, it would be nice to see him try.
We have been dedicating some posts to this video, from the teaser to Yaje Popson’s full part and now the extras. All of these have had some real good skating in it set to some sick music. The opening track makes you feel like the guys are skating through Twin Peaks or something. Enjoy the skating and have Shazam ready at all times.
Featuring Shawn Powers, Genesis Evans, Jason Byoun, Adam Zhu, Yaje Popson and many more
