Skate videos much like other forms of expression are often linked to the reality of the maker. When talking about trends in videos some video makers seem to have landed into territory that allows them to utilize the lost glory of industrial areas.
The title “Steel” makes obvious reference to the industries of yesteryear and while Adam Bos works his magic in the USA where Trump is trying to reignite the fire we see the same tendencies in German, Ruhr valley based companies like Obtain and Europe Co.
This video stands out a bit more because of an excellent music selection process that led to Adam using songs that add to the aesthetic instead of just using songs that work (which is hard enough already). Congrats on a great project and the Vimeo staff pick.
