Here's the trailer for a cool looking skateboarding film called Pretty Sweet, which was directed by Ty Evans, Cory Weincheque and Spike Jonze. Jonze is involved with a very wide variety of projects, and has always broken ground with the inventive skits and filming techniques he has brought to the Girl/Chocolate and Lakai skate videos. The director also picks up his skateboard for the film and shows off his skating skills. The film features the infamously tight-knit Girl and Chocolate crew, including Guy Mariano, Eric Koston, Sean Malto, Marc Johnson, Jesus Fernandez, Vincent Alvarez, Elijah Berle, Justin Eldridge, Brian Anderson and a ton of other skaters.
I love the sport of skateboarding, and I've always enjoyed watching skate videos and documentaries. There's some really cool shots in the trailer -- even when Marc Johnson DOESN'T land a trick it still looks buttery. It's definitely worth checking out for anyone looking to see some awesomeness! Head on over to the official website for more information and videos!
This is an epic tale of two gangs, like The Jets and The Sharks. But Girl and Chocolate aren’t even gangs. Some of them act tough and some of them act like babies. But they are even more unlike the Jets and The Sharks in that they aren’t even battling each other for territory. They really don’t know what the hell they are doing. They don’t have a feud, most of them really like each other so that is another thing they don’t have in common with the Jets and the Sharks. What they do have in common with The Jets and The Sharks is they love to dance. And when I say dance, I mean SKATE. And when I say SKATE, I mean really good. From the directors that brought you Mouse, Yeah Right and Fully Flared, another chapter in this tale with no plot, no ending but beautiful inner battles acted out on a little board with wheels.
