Effluvium

A look at the aesthetic of skateboarding 

SCOPE

The tone is dark undertones + blue hue. The film is shot at sunset/blue hour and night. It is an artistic skate piece. Skill level does not matter, it is all about how the skater has sculpted their style.

V.O. transfers in and out of piece. The voice is talking about this itch, addiction, love for this craft. It's almost like a love letter to someone.
