How to Make an Awesome Skate Video

Skateboarding videos are very popular with our users here at Magisto, so we thought we’d bring you a few tricks to help you make a totally awesome skate video.

1. Don’t just upload one video. You can upload up to 16 video files or up to 600MB. The more you upload the more Magisto has to work with, which means your video will have a lot of variety.

2. Shoot in a few different locations. The ultimate skate video is made up of a mix of locations from the skate park to grinding different curbs and rails around your neighborhood to cruising through your favorite skate spots. Uploading a mix of cruising shots and trick shots makes for a nice well-rounded video.

3. Make sure you get plenty of shots of all of your friends. After all, nobody wants to be left out of the final video. Try to get a good amount of footage of all your friends skating around and doing tricks so that everyone gets a part in the final video.

4. Choose a catchy soundtrack from your favorite band. Music really makes or breaks your video, so choose something with a nice beat that will add to the excitement. Check out the skate video example below for inspiration!
