Ok so the idea of a longboarding video competition had been tossed around and after some thought i think its time to get this happening. All u shredders out there this is your chance to show us all what you got. Bust out your cameras and steeze it up. Right here on ASRA we will hold the first Australian longboarding video competition, you will all have two months to shoot and cut up some of your sickest footage into a video no more than 3mins long and battle it out for the big prize! (prizes yet to be advised, but hey who gives a f*ck what you get really.... but either way it will be a sick prize - i will personally throw in a set of fresh wheels)
Lets see what the aussie riders out there have got, and lets get the creative juices flowing.
All you have to do is upload a video onto the ASRA website and post up a link right here, and on December the 9th we will unveil the winner. We will choose 3 finalists to take 1st 2nd and 3rd, and these 3 videos will all be featured on the Skatehorde.com website.
What we will be looking for:
- Good cinematography (camera work)
- Some form of story-line or flow to the video
- Sound tracks
- Good use of colours in images
- Interesting camera angles
- All around gnar-ness
Videos can be shot of whatever you want as long as it has to do with longboarding. You can shoot a hectic downhill video, you can put on your red shoes and dance the blues away or you can style it up in your favourite urban environment, anyway you wanna do it get 'er done, but make it look sick!
Get creative with the cameras and film something new, try skating in different areas that you normally wouldn't skate and capture the moment, spread the stoke by trying to capture the feeling you get from longboarding.
All videos must be new and original, videos that have already been uploaded on this site before today (October 11 2009) will not be counted, give the people something they have never seen before so we dont get this competition flooded with old videos we have seen 1000 times before!
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Lets get it happening! If anyone wants to help out by donating prizes that would be wicked. Hopefully we can get this competition running as an annual or monthly thing, so keep those videos happening. Remember if you are a finalist your video will be featured on the Skatehorde.com website. This is a great chance to not only get your steezy skating skills noticed but to really develop your video filming/editing skills!
REMEMBER THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION TO SEE WHO IS THE BEST SKATER, THIS IS A COMPETITION TO SEE WHO CAN CREATE THE BEST VIDEO OF LONGBOARDING.
Exactly the same as the original video except I have fixed the audio during the interview scenes and made them louder. It is an entry into Jacko's video comp on ASRA and also a teaser/trailer for a longer doco that I am doing at the moment. A representation of how Australian riders are shredding the gnar.
Im 14, from england. edited and filmed it with in one day. skating was done in the morning, why its called sundays starting. I usually just do flatland stuff but are working on more sliding and other things.. trying to widen out to more longboarding options. Only been longboarding for a year. What do you think?
I think that your over a year late for this competition and you would be far better off posting it in the videos section of ASRA. Buy a Rayne, don't grab between your legs when your sliding but rather between your toes and your ankle keep shredding!
