To BenShelbourne – I have to agree, American skaters suck ass. Little tricks, phony style, they look like skateboarders. Grow some balls America and someday you might catch up to the level of skating in Europe, Australia and Japan.
Too much hype for Russell. Kid is ok but not someone you want carrying your brand in the US market. That super deep v neck has got to be the lamest excuse for style. Dude needs a swift kick in the nuts for that one.
I know Russell is a solid skater. But IMO the person behind the edit didn’t do him justice. You can tell they had solid filming equipment but all the gaps looked tiny & were framed weird. Need to understand rule of thirds and stop shooting from such high perspectives. Also this kid needs to skate faster.
I would agree with the last comment–the skating needed to be faster. Filming was mediocre at best. Not being a hardcore film critic here but from footage I’ve seen of this kid at comps, he rips pretty hard. This edit was nice but overall not what I expected to see. Trick selection was good but the slow skating and over exaggerated landings made it sort of humorous to watch. I feel I’m being a bit harsh here but kid certainly has potential. Anyway, best of luck with the next edit Russ. Keep shredding.
Somebody show these kids some esco zoo videos. This guy is doing sloppy warm up tricks on spots that were murdered 10 years ago. What kind of mental case would want this chode representing their company. I would rather watch Mike Lilly do nothing than watch Russell Day do anything.
russells super good but the fuck was this shit? Your supposed to shoot for all killer no filler… but almost all of those clips were come weak ass shots to take up time… filming was way generic too i might add, just cause you have a dolly and a tripod doesn’t mean you instantly know how to get the good angles… ffffreak that fisheye and get some better long shots ya chomo.
