Now that’s what I call skateboarding!

Pirate Man’s latest video is his best ever. It’s taken him a while to get to a standard that most people can bear to watch, but he did it. The video lacks the normal pubes, biscuit crumbs and pin-head sized crawling organisms that usually festoon the screen and you can make out at least 50% of the tricks.

Ooh that was a fun multimedia-enabled interactive city-based treasure hunt!

We like to practice what we preach here at Supercreatives, and in our mission to bring accessible technology to the streets, we just ran the best Cardiff Go Skateboarding Day since the last Cardiff Go Skateboarding Day. Taking cardboard boxes, Red Bull, Youtube, QR codes, skateboards, sunshine and pirates we mashed the whole lot up into a tasty smoothie that went down a treat.

More Nick the bastard video magic

Nick was asked to produce a promo edit for new Crayon pro Chris Jones. Nick has seamlessly graded footage from different locations to ensure a consistent colour scheme dominates the edit. Couple that with filming that keeps the subject centrally placed, a track that has just the right amount of drama to support the action and a signature Nick the Bastard bit of digital wizardry at the end and you’ve got yourself some hot footage.

Crayon skateboards professional series

Another collaboration with Pete Fowler, but this one is far from his typical style. These graphics feature vector style portraits with the classic Crayon logo in a speech bubble. You can see the thought that’s gone into these when you build the deck into a complete skateboard…the graphics really work well with the wheels in place. Clean bright colours make these a stand out on the shelf, and the matching stickers are pure class.

Nick the Bastard

Nick is the producer of legendary Cardiff scene video ‘Hologram’, which was ably supported from a motion graphics perspective by Huw Caddy. These days he can do the whole shebang himself, thanks to a spell in Cardiff’s Atrium creative arts college and a long series of lonely evenings spent locked in his bedroom staring at his computer.

Nick’s style is low-key but not lo-fi…as the subtle inclusion of the Crayon logo proves in this awesome edit for Crayon.

‘Join us’ and the Golden tickets

Pirate Man produced the Cardiff Skateboard Club movie, ‘Join us’. It’s a unique production, that features Beverley Callard exercise videos and 80s television nonsense spliced with skateboarding from Cardiff and Leeds. It received some rave reviews and every hand-made copy sold out, meaning CSC branded classic album covers now take pride of place in homes around the country.
