Velvet by Spencer Legebokoff
Velvet is a skateboard film produced specifically for Vladimir Film Festival’s 10th anniversary.
Laced in a smooth, sexy, and jazzy aroma, this film treats skateboarding as a performance art opposed to a sport. Velvet was filmed over the course of three years, primarily in the Kootenay region of BC, Canada, and also features spots in Victoria BC. The motif of roses appears throughout the film to signify the intimate relationship established between skaters and the concrete world.
With contributions from independent musicians and animators, Velvet also seeks to function as a dedication to the friendships and bonds that skateboarding can foster.
