Filming lines of someone who has the opposite stance of you. Filming across yourself/riding switch can be annoying at times.

pulling the camera out of the bag,
putting that huge extended battery on,
twisting on the fisheye,
capturing those "had to be there" moments,
rolling along filming lines,
that feeling of finally marking the clip,
perfect long lens shots,
switching the tape to the cap. cam,
editing all night,
being super stoked.
having fun while doing it all.

yeah everyone and their mom has one. my friend who is clueless about cameras got a VX2000 and he uses steadyshot, sunshade, stands far away, use automatic settings, put stickers on the camera, and captures on it. and I have a GS120 and my footy is better. facepalm

The things I like most about filming is trying to keep my composure when an awesome trick is landed.
I also love ordering sony premium tapes in bulk and getting them in the mail! Haha...
I just love filming...

Showing the skate world through your eyes and discovering a better view after the trick is landed is my favorite!(sarcasm)

depends on the area. where i lived and go to school now the only decent setups for about 100 miles are my buddys gl2 and my vx21 ha.

but yeah... if someone pulled out a vx i wouldnt think anything of it. hmc/xtreme... yeah id be lookin ha.

I guess ill contribute even though im not very optimistic ha.
Being perfectly content with a clip is rad, doesnt happen very often but yeah. ha

waking up, meeting up with the homies with the whole day ahead of us going from spot to spot filming and landing tricks that hype everybody up and when you go to a perfect spot that has perfect lighting, the right angle, perfect roll up and landing and everything goes as planned

editing all night
getting new gear
filming something perfectly
finding a great song you can use on a montage
when everybodys stoked on a new montage
skate or diet

Get over yourself man. Message boards are a norm to society now. I have no issues with showing everyone at school as well as in public, that i am liked and well-respected on an extremely popular forum. Sorry, you're jealous or whatever, but there is nothing pre-pubescent about supporting a good cause. You didn't hear this from me, but I also heard Steve Laclare's girlfriend is really high maintaince and expects him to buy her all kinds of sh*t. Help the guy out a lil bit....

The night when your editing through all the footage you got that day and you stay up as long as it takes until you finish and post it on youtube, than the next day reading the positive comments and hearing from your friends how hyped they are on it. Love that shit
