Pushing Forward: The Golden Age of Video is Dead

Is the traditional skate video as we know it really dead? What is the relevance of the skate video in this modern digital age?

The latest skate documentary from Red Bull, ‘Pushing Forward’ takes a look at the emergence of the solo video part, the impact a traditional premiere still has, the hype behind the biggest team video in recent history and we look towards the future of skate videos.

Chapter One shines the spotlight on Ryan Decenzo during an important time in his career: as he prepared to drop his online solo video part “Double Down” for Thrasher. Ryan dedicated two full years filming for this part. The question is raised: Was it worth it?

Zered Bassett was recently featured in “Outliers,” Transworld’s 26th full length team video. Reaping the benefits of a traditional Hollywood premiere, Zered defends the significance of the skate team video.

With the much anticipated Plan B video set to drop in two weeks, Chapter One reinforces the core nature of a traditional skate video and why the concept of longevity and shelf life can never be replaced.

‘The Golden Age of Video is…Dead’ features Decenzo and Bassett, as well as skateboarders Torey Pudwill, Felipe Gustavo, Wes Kremer, Joey Brezinski, Dane Burman, and industry heavy hitters Ty Evans, Steve Berra, Erik Bragg and Chris Thiessen.
