One spot/One minute:
Richie Eisler and Dustin Werbeski at Rochdale skatepark in Regina, Canada. August 10, 2010.
The Velvet Underground – I'm waiting for the man
Arcade Fire – Wait for it
Dustin and I were both asked to do “One spot/One minute” for Be-Mag and decided that we would combine our efforts into one. My camera broke down, leaving us with no other option than to film with a Hero GoPro camera. This camera is pretty handy, but also pretty difficult to shoot with. There is no viewfinder and it is tricky to get steady images from such a small device. I think it worked well though. And hopefully it was worth the wait. We were asked to do this project months ago, but weren’t able to get it done until just recently (hence, the music choices). Overall, I am pretty happy with this edit. We both approached our boring old park with a fresh new perspective and had a lot of fun in the process. There is nothing better than a summer evening session with your friends. After living in different parts of the world for the last few years, it has been nice to reunite and shred our hometown again. We are heading to Spain next, so this will certainly not be the last of our projects together.
