QUIK, a short film, is a collaborative project between The Berrics and Quicksilver directed by Colin Kennedy, featuring music by We Barbarians and some epic skating by Austyn Gillette. It was filmed in LA’s historic eastside and downtown neighborhoods and shot entirely from moving vehicles. Using a series of quick snippets that have been masterfully woven together, the final product has a building energy that is hard to take your eyes off of.
Gillette’s pedal-to-the-metal skating is top-notch. And the way his skating is interlaced with shots of the city allows it to become more than a skate film. It really is like seeing the city out your passenger window, which is entirely appropriate for LA and its car culture.
