Recently I randomly came across Hella'wood, a skate video that apparently premiered over the summer at Eastside Lounge. While skate videos are pretty far off of my rader, I've always appreciated good ones when I see them, and this one struck me as fairly interesting. The editing is choppy, random, and at time appears to be filmed off of a screen, but the high points for me are the great moments and patterns that the camera finds before and after the action. Check out an interview with the filmmaker Chris Thiessen here and the full video below.
