Cruisin’ In Hong Kong
Young filmmaker Danny Bautista takes us on a tour of Hong Kong in this awesome short video that captures what it’s like to cruise around with your buddies in a highly urbanized environment. Of course, there’s some pretty sick skating but what really hit home in this video was Danny’s ability to capture the authenticity of what the title of his short film suggests. All of the shots were captured essentially in motion and includes scenes of the featured skateboarders Chris Bradley, Chun Chai, Ah Wai, Ah Ngau and Piet Guilfoyle just having a damn good time. It’s nice to see a different kind of video like this come out that focuses more on the feel of skateboarding rather than the skill – it really makes you appreciate the less tangible aspects of skating that make it so much fun.
