Skateboarding is a spectacle whether you’re on the board or off of it. The searing sound of four wheels tearing through the concrete, skipping up curbs and weaving through the crowd is a momentary impression in which both the witness and the skater engage.

This is the basic artistic tenet of street skateboarding, which despite a creative rhetoric is generally confined to the same visual representation. Here Slovenian filmmaker Kristijan Stramic adds a new perspective to the canon while capturing skateboarder Luka Bizjak skating his local city. Using various removed filming techniques, Stramic does well to set the context of the city, while Bizjak leaves his mark.
