Lately, there has been a multitude of videos from younger filmers that have had this: “The world is not alright!” type of feel. Videos like Naquan Rollings’ KILL BILL are good examples of that.
But this video makes you feel like we arrived in a post-apocalyptic world at times! Burning cars, scary run-ins with the homeless (possibly mentally ill), and a guy getting so heated that he went and chased some younger skaters with a gun! If you feel good about the direction we are going in then either you didn’t watch the same thing we just did or you enjoy seeing these sorts of things.
Anyway, it is powerful to see a skate-video translate and incorporate these things and weave them into the fabric in such a way that the whole thing leaves a strong impression on the viewer. Great work by Tristan Warren, we can’t wait for the full-length.
Naquan seems to have taken the place of lurkNYC and is now showing us the younger generation of upcoming mostly black rippers. This video again is lovely, the music selection is on point and the filmography is great.
