I don’t like video premiers. Maybe I’m spoiled but the combination of poor viewing quality and having to deal with a bunch of drunk skateboarders makes me want to just watch it at home. Lots of great premiers have passed through the area and I have passed most of them up, no regrets. The Double Guns 4 video is the first local thing I’ve been really excited about in a while, DG was my introduction to San Marcos when I still lived in the desert. I decided to get myself out to the premier of the 3.5 promo in order to get used to these typically awkward premier events.
I was expecting a disaster, being at a brewery just had me expecting “technical difficulties” skateboarders are typically not talented audio/video technicians. Well I was wrong, completely wrong. Everything went off without a hitch. It was a full house but not too crowded that anyone’s view was blocked. The video was clear, the audio wasn’t deafeningly loud. I have to say I felt silly expecting it to fall apart, it went off smoothly.
Oh yeah, the video. It was rad and has me confident DG4 is gonna be just as good as all the others. Zack’s footage gave me the feeling of just hucking it and it got me hyped like an old zero video. There was nothing other than skateboarding in this promo. With so much padding from visual effects, slow mo, skits, any number of things used to pad a video this was straight up tricks and I appreciated the no nonsense.
Over here at ETB we are huge fans of Tim Tom. Even though a lot of this footage I’ve already seen, that’s probably because I am a connoisseur of Tim footage. Some of his tricks could be watched 100x over anyways because they are so clean. He is like the San Marcos Tiago. I legit can’t wait to see his part and what song he picks. A full-length homie video getting love with a real premier is a rare thing in 2017 and how excited I am about it goes to show how important that can be. I still haven’t even watched the new TWS vid, but I’ve already watched tis promo a few times.
