Hi, I’m Jamie Terrill, a researcher at Lancaster University, UK (and once a very enthusiastic but awful skater).
I’m currently conducting some research into the visual culture of skateboarding, particularly skate videos and cameras used. I’ve made a short survey that contains a few questions on this topic - it’s entirely anonymous and doesn’t require a login.
If you’re over 18 and have a few minutes, please do complete the questionnaire - https://tinyurl.com/SkateVideoResearch
My goal is to use this all as a jumping pad for a larger project concerning skateboard visual culture, with skateboarding and its associated cultures being barely touched within existing scholarship.
I think this is the most positive response this forum has ever had to someone new starting a thread asking for something. I like it
Apologies if I’ve gone about this the wrong way, I’m not too familiar with using forums! Really grateful for all the responses so far!
No this is great, you’d honestly be surprised at what some naive dumbtrepreneurs try and flog to a bunch of ageing cynics like us with too much bitterness and not enough time. Gets some interesting responses. I enjoyed the last question, there’s definitely one constant on that (especially compared to other videos in similar scenes)
There was the other day as well
Done! I could’ve gone for ages on that last question.
Cheers everyone for the responses thus far, much appreciated!
Done! Apologies for the mega long answers, you had me going off on a tangent!
I’m actually jealous he gets to read your answers!
Do us all a favour @SkateboardResearch and post the finished article here when you’re done. It sounds like it’ll be an interesting read.
