A Short and Bizarre Skate Film
Truly strange: Skating the day away and greeting the Ghosts of Time along the way.
Filmmaker Brett Novak and skater Kilian Martin teamed up to make this eerie flick, considered to be one of the best skate flicks ever.
Known for his creativity, Kilian isn’t your typical skateboarder and “Altered Routes” isn’t your typical skateboarding video. It’s a strange little scintillating gem, shining like a lost lost jewel in the Bagdad Cafe desert sun.
Set in an abandoned family fun park in the Mojave Desert, with tumble weeds and the melancholy atmosphere of a more glorious past rolling through it, this artistic glimpse of a bygone era highlights some spectacular skate skills, board control, and an atmospheric– if not outright spooky– soundtrack from Patrick Watson.
