Ride

“Ride”, a skateboard film directed by Garth Davis, featuring Steve Berra and an amazing cast of Mexican skaters. Everyone is talking about the recent Lakai video with the fire in the warehouse but this is roughly 1,000 times more engaging.

Watch the short film below!

The film is sponsored by a certain energy drink but I’m all for advertising moving in this direction if it means less emphasis on branding and more on the artistic integrity.

    I totally agree I tried to watch the Lakai video yesterday and just couldn’t get thru it, I found it way to boring, although I did really like the older first Lakai video that Spike Jonze did.

    This “ride” short is just really good also def check out the two other videos that were done in conjunction with this in promoting the new Coke Burn drink

      the Hot Chocolate dvd that Spike did awhile ago had some nice flaming skateboard sequences – some of this stuff is pretty ridiculous though, im not even talking about the composited footage (ie building jump) – the sequence on the roofs of the vehicles is great

        so the building jump isnt real?

    Best use of flames in a skate video. Everything is real. No 3D.
