A new throwback: this is my rediscovered and finished 2009 skate part. Basically a continuation/ left over/ following year of “Dirty Maneuver” (2008).
The footage was mostly filmed by Ryan Cambage and Casey Schultz throughout 2009 in various Upstate, NY locations – Saratoga, Glens Falls, Lake George, Warrensburg, & Wilton.
It was  all shot on MiniDV tape via an SD Sony Handicam and fisheye lens attachment. The footage was captured and sorted over the years until this month when I finally reviewed, arranged, and edited it.

Music by Devon Williams
“Bells” from Carefree, 2008 Ba Da Bing! and “New Guidance” from Beyond the Beyond, 2015 self released.

Full credits and thank you’s at the end of the video.

Back in late September 2014, the rated gnaR crew (Casey Schultz, Ryan Cambage, and myself) did some hanging out, skating, and filming in Philadelphia, PA. Casey was competing in the U.S. Freestyle Skateboarding Championship held at Paine’s Skatepark so we ventured down to meet Ryan and have a good time. Casey won 1st place in the amateur division back in 2011, and after a really solid first run, took the gold that year (2014) as well.

I finally got around to uploading a short recap of the competition featuring Casey’s runs as well as runs and clips from other amateurs and professionals. Some competitors even came from outside the U.S. like Canada, Sweden, and Germany. There were some insane lines and tricks thrown down, and the video doesn’t even cover half of it, but it’s a cool watch.

After the comp we hit the streets of Philly and visited FDR park (which is so insanely gnarly you have to witness it in person to realize how hard it is to skate), a DIY skate spot under a bridge somewhere, and an abandoned school (now torn down I believe). With the help of Rebecca Getman (Casey’s girlfriend  who came along for the trip) we filmed some clips using our phones and I (finally) put together a video of that skate experience as well.

Here is the second installment of the “Just for Fun” footy. This is bonus and throwaway footage from the 2008 filming of my “Dirty Maneuver” skate part.

I love having all of this footage because it’s awesome to go back on and realize so much of these years are well documented. So many good times and moments captured to reflect on and feel nostalgic about.

Remember, skateboarding is fun. So here’s me having a great time and enjoying some of the less serious moments as well as the plenty of rad things that just couldn’t make the cut in the actual part. enjoy.

always, much love and thanks to everyone involved in this footage: from skating to filming to just hanging out and sharing life. all the credits are in the video. peace to dan levy.

One of my best friends degree project at Burlington College. He worked really hard to write and direct it, and it came out awesome. A comic tale of a day in the life of high school with bullies and going to the bathroom, check it out!

Here it is, finally!

Rated gnaR Films presents Daniel Levy’s film part for Dirty Maneuver (the closing part of the film).
Filmed from 2008 to 2010, periodically, in Saratoga, Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, NY.
Filmed mostly by Chris Brown, Ryan Cambage, and Casey Schultz, edit by Ryan Cambage, produced by Rated gnaR Films.

We’re proud to finally share Dan’s part with the world after it being blocked by copyright upon its original upload months ago… this part, nothing less than epic, really demostrates Daniel’s raw talent and creativity on a skatebaord, as well as his antics of fun and frustration while shooting. Throughout the making of this video, and any other time with Dan, was a blast. He was one of my all time favorite people to skate/ film with, and he always helped to push me and bring out the best in my ability. This is also true with his other friends and Rated gnaR crew like Casey Schultz, Ryan Cambage, and Zak Young.

This video is dedicated to Dan, in loving memory, and his friends and family. Memories like these will live on forever, and through Dan’s art and inspiration, on and off a skateboard, he can truely never die.

Thanks for watching, reading, and sharing!
-Chris and the entire Rated gnaR crew, much love.

Dan Levy was an inspiring, talented, and creative artist and skateboarder, as well as an all around good dude. He was one of my favorite people to skateboard and film with, and I wished we had been better friends. In the little but valued time I knew Dan I shared alot of great moments, many of them on video which I share with you here. All of his friends miss him and he will be remembered always.

Dan’s Art Blog:

Here are some Rated gnaR Film moments for the full length skate film Dirty Maneuver which I was working on with Dan and many other friends (which remains unfinished but mostly online in parts).
Some trailers and a day session (as appears on the Dirty Maneuver page). His final, awesome, part is unfortunately unavailible online due to music copyright issues… Ryan C has it though.

Rated gnaR Films, and Bad Culture, presents Skatepark Shenanigans. Recently this summer 2011 there has been some small skate footy captured here and there, mostly at skateparks, so instead of holding onto it where no one sees it, and since it doesn’t have a proper home, I have decided to put out a small segment of this random footy. So the first, of maybe more, installment is thus: Skatepak Shenanigans.

Filmed by Ryan and myself, edited by me, produced by Rated gnaR Films, and features original, local music by Black Andy (the project of Asa Morris). The song is from a 2010 EP titled Manhattan.Death.Pose. and it, and many more, are free to download at: http://lofikabuki.bandcamp.com

Check it out:

ALSO, Dirty Maneuver…
I feel the need to give the latest for this forever skate film in the not making…
Currently All official parts are online on my youtbe and in the DM section except Dan Levy because of copyright music (currently being worked on fixing maybe) and myself becasue i’m least important (also somewhat in the working)… so there ya expect a full online relase sometime with its own, updated segment on here.

Peace!

New video from the Rated gnaR crew. Just a short fun skate montage thrown together for a homework assignment in my social networking class. Filmed durring a couple short sessions: at the skate park in Winooski, VT, and around town Saratoga, NY. Featuring Casey Schultz, Ryan Cambage, and Chris Brown. Filmed by all, edited by Chris, produced by Rated gnaR Films. Featuring music by The Black Heartthrobs “Long Distance Calling” from their 2010 release Clean Dirty Clean on Aggravated Music.
