Nate Blackburn recently donned a microphone and bombed down a hill for our enjoyment, but there was a lot more that met the eye then the Single take Raw Run would leave you to believe. So SkateSlate did some digging and found out all of the ins and outs that went into finding, securing, skating, and filming the Raw Run for America.
Nate worked pretty hard scheduling to film this Mic'ed Up Raw Run on Skateslate, and was stoked to be able to provide a Behind the Scenes look of what typically goes into a video like this:
Finding the hill. (how to find hills) Breaking into the Gated Community Meeting the Neighbors Orgainizing Cameras and Spotters Prepping the Hill, Clearing Debris Planning the drifts with the follow car driver Assigning a designated Spotter and Course Closer Learning how to skate the line Dealing with patchy conditions Bringing extra Pants to the Hill Trying Multiple Times Failing Multiple Times Being Patient while the media gets released
Nate was using his Omen Airship for its Stiff Construction, Comfortable Pockets, and Micro-Dropped Stability.
