This is an edit of fingerskating. It’s over 3 minutes long and it took about a day to edit. The edit is really just for fun and also to represent rolling in a different way. It’s my first edit and you’ll know this because I don’t have any graphics or anything and the quality is poor due to the fact that I used a digital camera. It’s more of a test edit. Enjoy!
The skates are all hand made. The film is all done in my room which explains the lack of space and variety. If this video actually does well maybe I’ll pull up a better sequel after a few of my other projects.

They’re made of a combination of materials. The main materials are Rec Skate Key chains that I bought from a convenience store in Barbados. Then I also used thin and very long popsicle sticks, craft foam, and special bread bag clips that slides very nice and they seem to use it a lot here in Barbados.
I was able to get it to look espceially good by tweaking them with tools such as a knife, scissors, razor, krazy glue (really strong tacky glue or glue gun glue which is “Stony” Jonathon’s trademark), paper for certain details, electric tape for smooth variances on colours (That’s how I got the green on the valos and the red lining on the liner of the Rachards) and printed coloured graphics to give better precision on details like on the side details of the Murda 2s.
