Carlos Monenegro Re-up–strictly for the OD Daily Grind blog. I did this as a compilation of the last two edits of Los to show the talent and effort that Los exhibits. Yes there is a lot of falling in the edit but it’s to show that dude puts in crazy amounts of work. We’re already working on Carlos’s third edit and we’re aiming for perfection with that one. Mike V apparently figures out why so many people like to hate on Los–wait till the end to find out why.

ODNY: Humble Beginnings

NY Scene, OD Crew

Having started rolling at the age of 21 (25 now), researching and building a world around skating has been a great passion of mine since. Although I owned skates at the age of 8 and destroyed them– I couldn’t afford actual oxygens or K2’s growing up. Never the less, I still had an itch for the sport on a subliminal level. Occasionally running into skaters like Anthony Soto, Sal Zaso, and Alex Nunez while out on their adventures either filming or casually skating something in the neighborhood of Queens, NY. Finally when being able to afford skates in college, I happened to meet a friend freshman year who was part of an old school crew founded in Queens called 22k which is essentially an elementary school that had a complex backyard with all kinds of unfinished stair cases, ledges, and gaps–essentially an unfinished street park to anyone that had a pair of blades and wax. These guys were around for the high and low times of our sport and were great enough to introduce me to Daily Bread, VG4, and Hoax 2. They helped fill in a major gap that I unfortunately had missed when thinking back to prime time blade history.

 

 
Well for those who aren’t part of the steady fan base, OD has been around since 2006. I’ve had major influences to pursue media in NY. Some of those that stick out to me are: B.Unique’s edits, Angelo Ferrer’s early photography, Old IMYTA’s, and Victor Callendar’s skate comps. Battle my crew and LMS(Last Man Standing) included. The idea behind OD has always been progress and capturing skating of the average roller in our city. Our edits are meant to be fun and give you a glimpse that NY is still doing it’s own thing. Being so, I want to thank the few regular homies that help start the crew which has now really grown to be our entire city. The following edits below were taken down due to quality issues or stupid politics for what ever reason. Either way, I hope you enjoy them and take a look at our hustle from then. Taking a look back though, humble beginnings don’t end bad–you just grow up and get over shit.

 

This edit is the second edit I ever made but the first one to go public. It’s filmed on a GL2 I owned at the time because they were crazy popular back then. Hah! Still a pretty banging camera imo. Featuring long time friends: Patrick McClear and Michael Valenzuela. I have an edit in the works which is essentially suppose to be the very first public edit ODNY was suppose to release but perfectionists always wait or sit on stuff for too long unfortunately. LOL moment we always laugh about: check out Mike V in this edit with the praying mantis arms.

 

This is first edit I dropped after acquiring a Canon XHA1. My circle then was still pretty small so filming friends was a start.

 

This edit is featuring skater John Estrella(Punch Master John) and John Tkaczuk from the Lower East Side of Manhattan. John was always a pretty chill dude who was known for his crazy antics and Mr. Tkaczuk just always reminded us of Fish. Dude was always down to skate anything and everything. Probably the first time featuring new kids that I hadn’t skated with before.

 

This was the first edit I dropped using the Canon 7D. I fell in love with the camera for the way the lenses captured video in low light. Featuring all time friend: Michael Valenzuela at what was back then almost a ritual spot to a good portion of skaters in the Jackson Heights area of Queens, NY.

 
Hope you guys checked out all that and enjoyed some. For the few local heads that are reading this, just hope that you don’t think you need an expensive camera to drop dope material. You just need yourself, some homies, and what ever you have that shoots video. So tired of the misconception that edits need to be highly pretentious and shot by a film crew to produce something that’s fun to watch. Stay up NY!

NY Scene: Skeptic Media

Creative Highlight, NY Scene

Hey guys, David Toro here-wanted to give an update onto who came before us and has been putting in work in ways that can only be hated on. Skeptic Media which has been putting out media on the strength of the love for our sport in NYC for a while now.

That being said, I want to kick off this new feature: NY Scene featuring great movements in NYC that have lots of talent and have been part of the NYC scene since before ODNY’s time. Which is essentially everyone… of course with a few honorable exceptions.

Sketpic Media is the conception of Navin Hardyal, a Bronx native. Navin has been putting out edits … well probably longer than I’ve been skating. He’s literally the first person I saw 540 out of a soul grind for fun. Boss shit. Dude has been putting in work since way back. Anyhow, most cinematographers know how challenging putting out footage can be. Whether it’s judging the skating itself or judging how you filmed it–there is always a video clip measuring up to your standards of quality. Especially when trying to represent a scene that has been known for quality skating due to it’s specific place in time.

Skeptic has definitely been a staple in NYC skating featuring guys like: Rafael Herrera, Jose Henriquez, Ramelle Knight, Joaquin Fletcher, Evan Grimball, Will Torres, Greg Sturino, Damian Michalski, Jeff Matteo, and many more. Peep game and show some love. NYC forever.
