RAINDROPS SKATE VIDEO

Check out this short film by Jesse Lamar High and Nik Harper (Lamar+Nik), titled “Raindrops”. The video combines water balloons, HD slow motion footage, and skateboarding. The tricks aren’t the biggest bangers or the most technical, but it is worth a watch. The filming and direction of the video are pretty rad. Here’s to more integration of skateboarding and concept art.

We think it’s pretty cool, but you should watch it for yourself and make up your own mind about it. Maybe it’ll inspire you to go out and film something on your skateboard, and perhaps think about making it that much more interesting and fun, both to film and watch.

The song in the video is called “Raindrops” too, by Monster Rally & Rumtum. The skateboarders featured are Clint Walker, Jimmy Young, Daniel Yeager, Nick Own, Ely Saavendra, Gage Martin, John Reinke, Scott Sullivan, Taylor Nida, and Colby King.
