“Unbound” Arbor Skateboards + James Kelly + RED.

When you take a RED camera and film one of the best downhill skateboard racers in the world free riding, the results can be pretty amazing. The film below from Arbor Collective features James Kelly simply having fun, going fast, flying downhill.

While this film has a great look to it with a desaturated color pallet, and interspersed slow motion shots, one thing that really makes it is the sense of speed. The way this is filmed, you get a sense of just how fast he is going. You see the wobbles, fumbles, and near spills. All of this helps build the sensation of movement and speed, while capturing the grace and athleticism of this sport. Great little short film with a soundtrack from the movie Django Unchained for bonus points.
