This October, we are hosting a workshop on filming skate videos in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, and Boston. Acclaimed skate directors will be sharing filming techniques using today's mobile video technology, including shot setups, angles, editing, and finishing. Then you'll have the chance to practice your filming skills with CONS Pro skaters.
CONS Project is a series of community projects designed to inspire the next generation of creative spirits through skate, art, and music. CONS Project will collaborate with local skaters, artists, and musicians to host creative workshops and provide participants with a unique, hands-on learning experience.
