SDAM Skate @ the Embarcadero from San Diego Action Media on Vimeo.
So last Friday our good friend Joel Piper from the band Confide was going to be in town, and seeing that Joel loves skating, we decided that shooting a skate video would be fun! We called up our friend Brennan Milligan, a Student Brand Manager for Red Bull San Diego and picked a spot in SD to shoot. We all kept talking about how sweet of a spot the Embarcadero was to shoot at, we are definitely blessed to live where we do.
We met another skater there named David Butler while we were filming, he was a really rad guy, and we were stoked he wanted to be a part of our little project. We also got to test out a method of shooting with the Canon 7d and a monopod for the skate footage that turned out to be a pretty solid little rig. The only downfall seems to be the fact that all of the footage is shot upside down, but this is easily flipped in post. Needless to say we will absolutely continue to use this rig in the future.
