To nerd out on you for just a second, skate video production in the late 2000’s early 2010’s was all about high definition. It wasn’t some obscure or technical thing that you had to be a camera(wo)man to understand. It was an immediate visceral change. Suddenly there was just so much more detail, you felt transported to these awesome skate spots all over the world, with the best skaters in the world. So when the already venerable Brandon Negrete made the switch to HD and began producing promotional edits for the Xsjado team, it quickly became a series that would still hold up ten years later. Filming with bladers like Jeff Stockwell, JC Rowe, Chris Farmer, Ben Schwab, Victor Galicia, and Marcus Benavides, with the music and style and editing only Negrete could pull together… just re-watch for yourself.
