Fix Up Skate competition 2015 – Build it, Skate it, Film it, Edit.
The brief was simple. Create a two minute film focused on skateboarding and having fun. Last weekend sixteen teams spent three days getting creative in the sunshine, armed with a video camera, a “loose” storyline and a large dose of enthusiasm. It doesn’t seem to take much to encourage skateboarders to put on some fancy dress and take to the streets.

The inaugural year of the Fix Up Skateboard Competition was amazing. Skaters of all ages and styles signed up and of the 16 teams that entered everyone made it to the finish line.

The films were premiered at The Cube cinema with the teams voting on each other’s productions. There was such a wide variety of quality films produced over the weekend, but somehow the teams managed to whittle it down to the top three. No words are needed, just sit back and enjoy.

A massive thank you to all the teams that entered the competition. It’s nothing without all your hard work and creative input
