Directed and edited by German cinematographer Sebastian Linda, The Epic & The Beasts is a one-of-a-kind action sports video that showcases a variety of skateboarding moves through slow-motion footage. Filmed over the course of three days entirely using the Red Epic camera, the video captures all the minutia that entails landing a signature skateboarding trick. The Epic & The Beasts is a must-see for any skater or skateboarding fan and features skateboarders Tom Kleinschmidt, Richard Naumertat, Erik Grob, Octavio Trindade and David Raderecht. After watching this, I can guarantee you’ll never look at skateboarding the same way again. The spirit of the video can be summed up by its tagline:
When we were kids we never dreamt of being a fireman, a pilot, or a superhero–we always wanted to be skateboarders, Jumping up curbs, down the stairs, flipping our boards as many times as we could. This has not changed until today.
