FilmThisTrick is a project focused on examining the spread of the skateboarding culture and developing an understanding of how skateboarding has produced not only a new generation of athletes, but also a new generation of artists, thinkers, creators, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, photographers, filmmakers, writers, designers and above all members of an international community.
Skateboarding has been one of the most effective tools of engagement for individuals who have found difficulty expressing themselves through conventional social channels. While the lessons that each person takes away from the community are always different, the end result is an individual who has matured in their own terms and has taken that spirit into whatever endeavor they have chosen to pursue. It is our intent to highlight that spirit, and push the discussion around skateboarding forward so that everyone, skaters and non-skaters alike, can begin to look at subcultures differently and appreciate what they can do for the people around us.
If you have any ideas or know of stories that we can share to help carry this conversation forward please contact us here.
