Inspired by his childhood belief that skateboarders used magic for their gravity-defying maneuvers, German filmmaker Sebastian Linda decided to bring that fantasy to life with this magnificently shot skateboarding short, "The Revenge of the Beasts."
Without the use of tripods or dollies, they have captured some truly awe-inspiring sequences. The high speed cameras and use of powdered pigments make the bails look just as exhilarating as the makes. The skateboarding isn't necessarily all that technical or big, but the superb cinematography and camerawork emphasize the magical and gravity-defying nature of skateboarding, while the music makes it feel like you're watching a sci-fi film.
