New film series Ahead aims to fuse skateboarding, travel and discovery like you’ve never seen before. In what we can only describe as hybrid of our beloved skate videos and a David Attenborough documentary.
German filmmakers Daniel Mildner and Dennis Götz headed to Scotland to shoot the first episode of their new series with rising skate talent Markus Blessing taking centre stage. They hope Ahead will be a new kind of skateboarding film, with travel and discovery at its heart.
"We wanted to combine wanderlust with skateboarding,” Daniel explains. “We tried to capture tricks in the most beautiful landscapes on earth and through the narration we want to tell the story of each country through Markus’ eyes.”
The shots are nothing like we've seen in a skate piece before, they offer a truly different approach to format we've been used to seeing for years. We're hugely excited by the series and can't wait for the next instalment.
