We have selected 2 of our favourite films for you...
Yeah Right - Girl Skateboards - 2003
Yeah Right, the iconic skateboarding video from Girl Skateboards first released in 2003, is often regarded as one of the most influential skate films of all time, certainly for the naughties generation.
Directed by Ty Evans and Spike Jonze, Yeah Right! reset the standard for high-end skate videos for years to come. For example, the intro was one of the first films to capture skateboarding in ultra-slow motion and the use of high-quality special effects hadn't really been seen in skate videos before.
Yeah Right! featured the 'Invisible Board' skit, using green screen technology to digitally remove the skateboards making the skaters appear to 'float' on screen.
Hot Chocolate - Chocolate Skateboards - 2004
Hot Chocolate is a documentary-style tour video that follows the Chocolate team as they travelled around the US, skating streets, demos, and filming skits. The team is also interviewed before the trip for a sense of anticipation, and after to reflect on the good times had.
The Cinema Collection
The collection features skateboard decks, completes and clothes to mark the anniversary. Some of the highlights are the all green complete as seen in Yeah Right! Now you can re-create that iconic scene from the film where the skateboards have been digitally removed!
