Plank

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Joe Staples sent this link out the other day. It nearly made me weep. Not because it’s sad. But because it’s beautiful.

I’ll just quote the Berrics and let them explain it, since they do it so well:

Skateboarders are the same everywhere. There’s a certain drive and determination that pushes us to accomplish things that the average person might not think is possible. Whether it’s jumping down a set of stairs or making a career out of what we’re passionate about, skateboarding teaches us that we can accomplish anything that we put our mind to. Nassim Guammaz is a skateboarder, a good one at that. He dreams of one day becoming pro even though that’s not the path that his family would like to see him take. Plank is a short film directed by¬†Billy Pols set in Spijkenisse, Holland that follows 15-year-old Nassim through his day to-to-day routine as he prepares for Damn Am in Amsterdam where he hopes to get one step closer to realizing his dream.

Via – The Berrics

There are some shots below, or you can go watch it here:

Theres a bit of the early days of skateboarding in the spirit of this film – the dream of making a living out of it, a lifestyle. Takes me back.

What makes the Internet different from other forms of media is the intimate, one-on-one interaction with other humans. Because of this, online communities form between like-minded people to create, calmly discuss art, culture and other high level intellectual topics.

Join us at ROFLCon Summit, Saturday October 1st in Portland, Oregon to celebrate communities and all that they provide to the world.
