BERRICS FROM ABOVE
If you don’t mind us saying so, The Berrics has given skateboarding a new perspective to view your favorite pros. We’ve tried at least. So, when filmmakers like Sean Slobodan show up with new camera equipment, we rig it up and give it a go. Our very own Colin Kennedy called up some friends and the session began. This rad video using High Sight Camera is what followed.
“New tech and camera gear are becoming more available to filmmakers all the time, but for the most part, I like to try and make sure the content I’m shooting remains the focus rather than just shooting something because I’ve got access to a certain piece of gear. Basing a project around an idea is always better than basing it on some type of cool equipment. But sometimes I think you also want to try new things in a controlled environment to see if they fit the content you’re shooting. This was the case here. I’d connected with the guys at High Sight Camera on a shoot a while back and had been looking for a time to test out their rig with skateboarding. Figured the Berrics would be the perfect place. So here we are. Not trying to blow anyone’s mind, just offering a slightly different perspective on a space that we’ve already seen in many different ways. And possibly help add another arrow in the quiver for filmmaking in skateboarding.” – Director Sean Slobodan
