Here is a Swedish Rollerblading Documentary by Matts Barrett & Carl-Johan Sevedag, featuring almost the whole USD Swedish Team and Billy O’Neil. The talking is in swedish langage, but the skating really worth it even if you don’t understand what people are saying.
According to Shogo, who gave me the link, they are comparing inline skaters to gangsters running around. Haha, too bad that i don’t speak the langage, seems like a lot of fun.
Thanks Shogo !
One of the best idea i saw recently : promoting Rollerblading in schools. This action took place in Poland.
On the 6th of December Santa in- line competition, organized by roller nursery WODZU took place in gymnasium number 8 in RzeszÃ³w.
The aim of this sport event was to promote in-line skating in gymnasiums and primary schools! All competitors competed in 4 events: slalom, high jump and extreme ride (mini jump and rail)!
Up : polish newspaper article.
Adam of Iowa Connection posted a short rollerblading documentary.
Words and video by Josh Michalec
Last spring, during my last term for high school, I was assigned to make a documentary in my language arts class. I decided to talk to people around my area, Cedar Rapids. I filmed some for the documentary, although I had most of the skating clips before this video project was assigned.
I wanted to make something that was fun to watch for not only skaters but also for the other people in my class, and I feel that worked out well, judging by my classmatesâ€™ reactions. We showed our videos everyone in the course. Everyone really enjoyed my video and that made me feel pretty good about my work. At the time my video was shown, I noticed there were a lot of things I could have made better, so the positive feedback from everyone helped me out a bit.
After all the videos were shown they were sent to the Cedar Rapids Public Television film festival. My video was named best in show and I won $100.
Before you watch this, I just want you to know that I am aware that I have used songs from other videos. I felt the music choices did not really matter in this case, so I picked songs that I thought would go well with the edit.
Basically, FRATED represents a regular rollerblading DVD, but behind this humble facade conceals an interesting background which makes it a unique project. The name FRATED can be translated as ‘made friends with’ and therefore perfectly describes what the whole project is about – namely bringing together rollerbladers from Denmark and North Germany. Throughout all summer skaters from both sides of the border were traveling to their neighboring country in order to meet, skate and subsequently to have a lot of fun together.
They were given the chance to combine their favorite thing to do with the possibility to see other cities, always accompanied by an HD camera recording the most amazing moments and of cause the most incredible skatesessions going down. All this would not have been possible without the great support of ‘Pool fÃ¼r Kultur- und Jugend (People to People) Region SÃ¸nderjylland-Schleswig’, an organisation supporting relationships between young people from Germany and Denmark. THANK YOU!
