New Underexposed Teaser: Poseiden’s Oahu Tour
So while I’ve been huddled away in the editing cave piecing together the documentary, Producer Brian Lynch has been busy filming the Poseiden Foundation’s Oahu Tour.
Micaela Ramirez‘ Poseiden Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring the youth. This tour brought role models such as Cara-Beth Burnside, Jen O’Brien, Abisha Alshebaiki, Heidi Newton, and Jen Valenzuela to schools across the island where they gave motivational speeches and skated with the students.
Lizzie Armanto, Allysha Bergado, and Hunter Long also shared their love of skateboarding by joining the Poseiden crew in various meet-and-greets and demos at skateparks all around Oahu.
Check out the teaser filmed & edited by Brian Lynch:
And be on the lookout for the new Underexposed site launching soon…
I was recently invited to Belmont High School to talk to 9th and 10th graders about pursuing your passions.
I talked about my love for skateboarding and the process of making Underexposed.
As a media academy, they were interested in the topics covered in Underexposed. I showed them a few teaser clips.
There were a lot of girls who talked to me about their interest in skateboarding.
Surprisingly, many of them shared the same story, their moms told them that “Skateboarding is not for girls.” After seeing clips from Underexposed, they saw that their moms were clearly misinformed.
After the presentation, I gave out some equipment from S-One and Tragedy Skateboards to help spread the skate love.
Want to be in Underexposed?
I have been completely immersed in putting together Underexposed. Filming. Setting up interviews and shoots. Traveling. Logging what must be nearly 100 hours of footage. Editing.
It’s all slowly coming together and it should still be done by May.
DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT?
If you are a female who happens to love skateboarding, I’d love to see if I can put a clip of you in the film!
Here’s all you have to do:
Send me some clips of you skating and an introduction.
Don’t have any skate clips? At least send over an introduction!
For the introduction all that you have to do is grab a digital camera (or a friend who has one), make sure your face and shoulders are in the frame and say: “Hi my name is _____________ I (something quick about you– play a sport? have a job? what grade are you in?) and I’m a skateboarder”
