MTV Skateboarder Commercial

January 13th, 2007

Two serious-looking young guys in baseball caps arrive with a big tool kit, blocks of wood and some blueprints. They begin sawing, drilling and hammering.

They build a half-pipe for skateboarding and, when it’s complete, give each other a macho handshake and then pull each other forward for a sensual kiss. The text then offers, “You never know.”

The young audience of MTV of course respects the idea of skaters, but would not expect them to be gay. The kiss is an unexpected juxtaposition against the macho handshake, thus breaking stereotypes.

Thanks Razors_2005!

Skating Photos by Afred

Afred posted some of his great shots in the Rollernews Flickr Group. The render of the images is really nice, here is how Afred proceeded :

For the colors, I converted to black and white then messed with the color channels. Once i was happy, i then took the original color image, and placed it over on a new layer, and set the transparency down to around 60% or so. This is all from memory, so i’m not positive.

Hedonskate Team, rocking the Essen Skatepark

January 11th, 2007

Here is a video edit of the Hedonskate team, skating at the Essen Skatefactory skatepark in 2006.

Starring Karakan, Yoghurt, Adam Zurawiecki and Piotrek.

The Skate factory in Essen is the skatepark which got famous with the BEAT THAT concept, started by Brian Aragon. Brian Aragon just launched crazy tricks and wrote them on the wood curb, challenging anyone to match or beat the tricks.

Chris Haffey and various skaters played the game (video of Chris Haffey here), which is over now : the skatepark was unmounted unfortunately. The modules were sold for 100 euros on ebay (not including the unmounting and shipping of course).
