    yeah the text was sort of visually distracting, with that said I imagine it was very cool for the participants to have their names in the video, I’ve always thought of Brownsville as a horrible neighborhood in Brooklyn but this brigthens my outlook on the place some

    • ya i never thought about that side of it, great tribute to the moms and coaches

    love the song. love that they profiled nyc youth and their families, but i can’t help feeling a little uncomfortable about the lack of integration. there’s some, but not enough. but the again, forced integration isn’t genuine. i live/work in brooklyn, so i understand demographics, but i think this video brings to light that nyc is more of a mixing then melting pot. i hope in the future this continues to change. on a more positive note, this could be seen as a project heralding in a new era that will continue to bring more people together through art.

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind

Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).



Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
