Winners Of The 2010 LA Skate Film Festival
The first ever LA Skate Film Festival has come to a conclusion and the winners of each category were announced at the very exciting awards ceremony in Hollywood.
The awards ceremony of the 2010 LA Skate Film Festival concluded two days worth of screenings and panel discussions in Hollywood. Exceptional work was sent in from all over the world and the first two days showcased the top 3 films in each category.
Educational panels were presented by Windowseat pictures, Centuray 21 3D, and Rabbit and ring of Fire to teach the filmmakers about integrating 3D and visual effects into their future skateboard films.
The much anticipated presentation of the awards came on the final day of the festival. Filmmakers had flown from as far as Vancouver, Philadelphia, and Austin, hoping to receive the 1st ever LA Skate Film Festival trophy designed by RVCA’s artist, Kevin Ancell.
Jim Thiebaud, Geoff Rowley, Grant Brittain, Bryce Kanights, Jamie Thomas, Ricki Bedenbaugh, and Greg Hunt were also present to show their support of the festival.
The surprise of the night was the “Tribute to Craig Stecyk”, which was presented by Steve Olson. Craig Stecyk is an inspiration to many of the filmmakers and skateboarders in attendance and is very deserving of this Tribute.
