Riding a Boosted board is magical. When you first roll the throttle forward it’s unlike anything you’ve ever felt to have a board come alive underneath your feet. Capturing that feeling in a video is always challenging but we recently set out to do just that.
We teamed up with Dan Darling, a talented motion graphics artist and spent the past 6 weeks working on the film. The result came out amazing with a mixture of realistic looking scenes combined with abstract visual metaphors and unique scenarios. We’re super proud of the final video and wanted to offer a glimpse into the mind of Dan and how this video came about so we sat down and did a quick Q & A with him.
So Dan, what was your process like for coming up with the movements in these videos? They are pretty stunning.
What did you think the first time you got on a Boosted Board?
Any last thoughts for people who are inspired by these videos and who want to pursue a career like yours?
