VADER is a Swiss rollerblading video project we wanted to materialize since a long time. This year, all the elements allowed us to make it. After more than 6 months traveling through the U.S. , Denmark and England I decided to DO IT !
I called all my rollerblader friends to submit my project as soon as I came back to my hometown. All of them were so juiced by my proposition and deeply invested themselves in it. We started to film in June which lasted all the summer 2012 till the winter came back. Then we stopped to film and I started to gather all the clips I got with some older skating clips that i've never used before. I putted all the clips together and started to edit the sections.
This video was mainly filmed in " Valais " which is a "State" in Switzerland where I currently live and where most of the skaters in VADER are from.
We called this video "VADER" in reference to "Valais" and "Blader", we mixed those 2 words together and came up with VADER.
