Filmed over a couple of trips to Philadelphia during the fall of 2012 and winter of 2013, Mark Suciu makes his official debut for adidas Skateboarding.
Check out some of the stills I pulled from the video to highlight Mark’s skating along with Chris Mulhern’s amazing skill in framing Philadelphia as a backdrop for this part. Great work!
Also check out Quartersnacks’ 21 questions after watching this part. I don’t think quigon’s comment over there (
he just ended any debate on the “East coast is harder to skate than west coast”) has any truth to it. I feel it is more proving that Mark Suciu is a beast and isn’t going anywhere away from skateboarding anytime soon.
This post just backs up Chris’ quote on Theories:
I think Center City just looks so good in footage, so much better than most other cities. I think I’ve filmed/photographed City Hall a thousand times, but I still never get tired of looking at that building. And when you film a line at LOVE or Municipal, you have this amazing backdrop… you see that clock tower looming in the footage and you just know it’s Philadelphia.
