With its timeworn cobblestone streets and glamorous reputation, Prague does not evoke images of a rebellious skateboard culture. But, as it turns out, the city has a burgeoning underground skate scene, complete with wheel-friendly hills and designated skate parks.
Directed by Jan Minol and produced by Samadhi Production, the video below features a faceless skater on a nighttime journey through the splendid city. Suspended from a remote-control helicopter, the camera records the skater's flips and tricks from above the fray. Illuminating the board from below with a blue halo, Jam Copters and crew minimize surrounding urban light to give the video a ghostly feel.
To see how Jam Copters and the rest of the Firefly team prepared for the shoot, watch the making of the video below:
