Just putting this out there. I don’t want it to solely be my interpretation, and I’ve probably forgotten some good examples…
We’ve got a pretty rad exhibition coming up at the local art gallery (ties in with all the other stuff going on right now to raise funds/awareness for the new park we’re working on). Anyways, I’ve been speaking to the Cornwall Film Festival people and they’re all up for screening a bunch of stuff. Possibly open air cinema, but definitely big screen something.
I’m pushing to show Macho Taildrop and AWS Mindfield (just because I want to see them on big screen), and we’re running Jim Craven’s Land/Island/Hringur with Grey in the exhibit, but they want to do something to do with Tribes (which is one of the Film Festival’s long running themes). They want to show Skate Kitchen too (which I’ve not seen), but we got talking about the different tribes within skating, like the East Coast vibe, Cali schoolyard or Zero type deal skating rails etc, Blueprint for the UK style of skating older architecture as well as modern etc etc.
They wanted something to best show bowl riders and also ramp (I’m thinking of that Junkyard Jam or whatever it’s called that Naverette organises), something tech like a Primitive section, and then I’m drawing a blank!
Just trying to think of some good sections or videos that really showcase a certain type of skating, to try and explain to an outside how skateboarding is not just one thing.
Does that make sense? Let me know what you think. Really need suggestions more than anything. They’re happy for me to rip YouTube clips etc, or I have a lot of old VHS and DVD too, if it’s not on there.
