The Rollerblading Project by Michelle Gerard

The Rollerblading Project

quoting a mail from Michelle Gerard:

I’ve been working on a personal photography project over the last 18 months called The Rollerblading Project. I’ve been mostly documenting the Detroit rollerblading scene but have also covered a 13 day rollerblading road trip to Toronto, Rochester, NYC, Philly, Pittsburgh and have covered a few trips to Ohio as well.

The idea was to photograph rollerblading in a way that was different from the cliches and to show more of the lifestyle and fine art aspect of rollerblading.

I did give myself 3 rules: no flash, no wide angle or fisheye lenses and nothing is staged or set up. I never asked someone to do a trick again, or tell them what to skate. I wanted this to be from a purely documentary viewpoint and I focused more on chill street sessions and the environment rather than the biggest / best tricks.

Anyway, I’m nearing the end of my project and would like to hold a gallery show in Detroit this winter to expose the general public to rollerblading as a lifestyle and as art, and to thank all the people who participated in the project.

The goal is to hold the show during Bittercold Showdown this year (on the Friday before, so no one misses any of the competition). I think it would be amazing to see rollerblading showcased in the art world and open to the general public and I want you everyone to have a chance to see it in person if they’ll be in town for the comp.

I’m using a website called Kickstarter to help raise at least $7,000 for a show that will cost close to $15,000. In exchange for pledges, I get to offer rewards such as prints, stickers, a limited edition book, digital copies of the book, advance private screenings and more.

Here are a few of the tricks from the summer and some of the people involved in the project. These are the deals that the guys didn’t feel would make it into their final part.

I think they are crazy, cuz these tricks are dope. If you got some spare change dump it on us and prebook your copy. You know you are going to buy it eventually anyways!

Starting in August we will set out to accomplish what some people thought we failed at with our last project. We switched up the format a bit and instead of making a tour video we will be making a profile video with all the tour footage being used for updates online.

20 skaters limited to 20 tricks for their part. Anything else will go online to promote the project. Sure to be wild parts featuring some of the best established talent as well as up-and-coming skaters.

Featuring Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, Don Bambrick, John Bolino, Billy O’Neill, Montre Livigston, Victor Arias, Michael Collins, Michael Garlinghouse, Bfree, PJ Peincak, Kruise Sapstein, Ross Kuhn, Tien Nguyen, Enanoh, Adam Exline, Dylan Davis, KC Roche, Dominic Sagona, Nick LaBarre.

With your pledges we can be assured of taking the above skaters to the far reaches of America and Canada and making for what could very well be the video of the year. Don’t look at this as a handout or a donation as you will be getting something very worthwhile with your donation (whichever level you choose) and you will be helping to keep the movement progressing.

Money will be used to fund travel costs. The more we have the further we go and the better the video will turn out.

We look forward to your support and keep in contact with the tour at youhatetoloveit.com.

Kickstarter Project : Art of Rolling Magazine ; A glimpse into a New York City underground sub-culture

Growing up in Brooklyn NYC I started stunt rollerblading as a kid at 9 yrs old. Living in a rough neighborhood it kept me out of trouble and gave me a sense of purpose. To this day at age 25 I now try my best to cover the young and old rollerblading talent that is seen on the streets of the NYC skate scene.

All over the world people want to know what goes on in the NYC skating culture; but to date NYC has 100s of talented skaters who have no mediums to present their talent to a global audience. New York City is known for many things and is the center of the world at times; however, there is an extremely interesting urban culture that thrives here which nobody has paid attention to for years.

With extreme sports hitting the map for the past couple of years, it has been a major source for entertainment, products and especially positive influences on the youth. The Art of Rolling Magazine’s purpose is to provide an outlet where these skaters can showcase their talent to others across the globe who share their same passion and interests in extreme sports.

We are the only magazine on the east coast of USA to take on the challenge of documenting such a rich and positive subculture. We strive to present the amazing life stories of these talented New Yorkers from their perspective about their sport to their life struggles and how rollerblading is integrated in their lifestyles. We also provide positive recreational exposure for the youth and educate them about a sport that is both healthy yet challenging. […]

Fitted DVD: Premiere + Kickstarter

Monday, October 25th, 2010

This Film is featuring Ramelle Knight, Rafael Herrera, Tim Franken, Dan Breuer, Jose Henriquez and Trevor Johnson.

During the late production of this film Trevor Johnson broke his knee filming for Fitted. We wish him a speedy and healthy recovery.

My name is Joseph Perez, I have 3 kids, a wife and a deadend job and a real passion for Rollerblading. I’ve been involved with the NYC scene for about 7 years now and I don’t think I can stop.

I created the featured film “Fitted” in order to show how everyone even outside of rollerblading uses this trend of fashionable headwear to represent their style of character and where they come from. I’m not a fan of baseball but for some reason when my baseball team is winning I feel proud to be living in the town that they play for. Rollerbladers share this unity for where they come from by wearing a Fitted. I have chosen 6 of some of the most talented Rollerbladers from New York to Baltimore to New Jersey to represent Fitted.

I dream of continuing my travels to other locations/states in order to help grow a variety of footage for the video. I kindly ask you guys and everyone around the world that views this trailer, please help fund our project in order for us to release this entertaining film we call “Fitted”. Check the details here at our link on kickstarter.com for fundraising options. We appreciate your time and hope that you would want to take part.
