We could write a very wacky, but standard website post, something like”Chance Swanson and his friends has a blast! filming this video.” and we would probably not be wrong. But instead, we would like to say, something like “Vancouver videos have stood out not only because of the skating but also because of the music selection.” but in the end, whatever we write the end result should be that you press play because this video is really worth your while.
And with a list of skaters like:
Charlie Hodges, Dustin Henry, Tristan Henry, Ty Peterson, Cole Chalifoux, Jiyun Park, Chance Swainson, Breana Geering, Leon Chapdelaine, Tom Robinson, Kyle Nickoshie, Ben Fenton, Ryan Witt, Dylan Fulford, Tavi Gibson, Aleka Lang, Braeley Wong, Simon Richards, David Barbeau, Jo Reigel, Chen Guevara, Tremaine Glasgow, and Amadou Diallo.
These videos coming out of Canada, more specifically Vancouver BC are really upping the level when it comes to well put together videos. Interesting trick choices, spot selection, and music choices are definitely a big thing in VC
Talking about VC there are similarities between Antosh Cimozko, Jake Kuzyk and now Chance’s style of doing things. This means that in a while we might be able to start speaking about a Vancouver school of filmers/editors. Exciting!
If you have been skating for a couple of years now you may remember that Antisocial is a Vancouver skate shop that was founded by one Rick McCrank. On the other side if you have been skating for a shorter amount of time you may now some of the people in this project from Jake Kuzyk’s video Civil Affair. To us, the collaboration between both is an exciting and logical step that makes both the shop and people like Dustin Henry, Ben Blundell, Keegan Sauder and Mike McDermott shine.
