Here is the first edition of the Controlled Accidents monthly series. Every month an edit will go up and its contents will depend upon my location and environment. This particular edit was inspired by Lawrence Kansas and Kansas City Missouri. I have been here for the past month pretty much just blading and being influenced by a positive crowd.
Lots of nights spent at the Lawrence skatepark shredding around with my ipod an maybe 3 or so skateboarders. I prefer skating at night to day. My theory for the enjoyment of night skating is that for the most part all the lighting if focused only on the park. This may help in reducing distractions, and sharpening focus on obstacles at hand. Maybe there is something to be said about the quality of energy in the day as opposed to the night and how those differences influence you.
For this edit Footage was contributed by Michael Garlinghouse, Adam Johnson, and Jeromy Morris. I think one of the clips that was used in his video â€œThe Birdz and the Beez.â€ Other clips he provided of Jeromy Morris and Jero I donâ€™t believe were used. All of Brandonâ€™s clips were used in â€œZombie Comatose,â€ by Adam Johnson.The intro was made randomly during a Stay with Jeromy Morris. He had a peep hole from a door (no idea why) and thought it would be a good idea to use it as a fisheye. He was right, and I ended up using it. It was also filmed on a cannon â€œelphâ€ handheld digital still cameras, which I thought was suprisingly good.
Waking up to fruit smoothies in the morning is a beautiful thing. Thank you Quinn! Another beautiful thing is Jeromyâ€™s Daughter Opal. She is the prettiest little sponge always soaking everything around her in. Shes got her fathers crazy eyes and a crazy gaze to match.
Thats all for now..if I think of more Iâ€™ll put inâ€¦input.
