A Short Film About Skate
A Short Film About Skate
A Short Film About Skate, is a skate video documentary shot on a 16mm camera. The idea would be to film two skateboarders in parallel, one in Paris and the other in Marseille. More than just filming tricks, we seek to portray a way of life, a conception of freedom and speed that is often found in this practice, at the limit of extreme sport. According to that, we want to film our two skateboarders with their feet on their boards, but also in their respective daily lives, with their families, their friends ...
The video will be mixed with audio interviews of the two skaters and their entourage. The video will be relatively short, around 5 minutes, at the crossing between fashion film and gonzo documentary; an on-board camera in a particular environment, while paying particular attention to aesthetics, to the image itself.
Who is behind the project ?
Passionate about skateboarding since my childhood, I always wanted to show this universe on the screen, to show a true, authentic vision. This film will be made with skateboarders, for skateboarders.
More about the film
As explained earlier, we seek to pay great attention to the visual of the film. The first point in this direction is to shoot with a 16mm camera. Indeed, most skateboarding videos / fashion movies are often shot with digital cameras and we really want to break with that kind of aspect of the golden age of skateboarding, the Los Angeles vibe of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. But filming with film does not mean no dynamism.. We really seek to have an on-board camera aspect that we consider important to succeed in getting as close as possible to the «trash» aspect of the skateboarding world. For this, we must be a pretty small team, in order to be able to move quickly. It is why there will be two of us on the set: a director and a cinematographer. For interviews, we will record them before. The two skateboarders will talk about their passion, but we would also want to add musical passages, ambient sounds ...

Why this crowdfunding ?
The purpose of this crowdfunding is to give a financial boost to this ambitious, but far from inaccessible, project. To carry out this documentary, we have saved part of the estimated sum of the project and the money raised will allow us to supplement the budget.
