COMUNE premiers it’s skateboarding film, Offset, May 19, 2012 at Kung Pao Kitty in L.A. California. The premiere lets COMUNE have a chance to show it’s hotest new skaters, including Josh Murphy, Al Partanen, Jordan Sanchez, Joseph Lopez and Nial Frederickson. Here’s the teaser of the film.
…”The introduction of our new skateboarding contributors is build around the idea of “the individual”. In the relation to COMUNE, our contributors are all different from one another. The team is made up of all types of people from around the world with different interests. In turn we are shown more than just skateboarders skateboarding, but individuals with other means of expression, living life how they want.
Following in the shadow of the Drop City artist collective, we look to boost our contributors at any juncture, whether it’s the driven up-and-comer or the old school pro. We value the work ethic, style and voice of the individuals and it’s only fair that they have the same platform to share their message. Our goal is to continue to push skateboarding through our contributor’s hardcore involvement.
Visually we wanted something that was not only cohesive with the COMUNE identity, but something that could also act in an additive and subtractive manner. Conclusively, we made a film in which each section seemed like it was from it’s own video. By doing that the video grabs the audience’s attention, forcing them to watch it more than once to understand the concept. The video and event are titled OFFSET, referring to the counterbalance within our program, our riders, and their differing backgrounds within the video’s varying aesthetics.”
