Black Market (2005)

“With the current dominance of the larger Freesports like Skateboarding, Mountain Biking and Snowboarding, it may come as a surprise to learn that having watched over 30 films across 15 different Freesports the judges have decided to present the Bluebird for Best Freesports Film 2004-5 to an Inline Skating film.

Inline Skating is not as popular as it was but often when things go underground some of the most creative work gets done. So it is with “Black Market”, a ‘Misled Media’ film with an international perspective, showing rollerblading around the world.

Doug Urquart traveled for 4 months across 8 European countries as well as coast to coast in the USA to give Black Market variety with profiles on Pro rollerbladers Brian Aragon, Julian Bah and Will Gordon; mini views of rollerbladers like Brent Hicks and Montre Livingston; and interviews with rollerblading pioneers like Arlo, TJ Webber, Chris Edwards, B-Love.

Not only is this the first High Definition rollerblading film ever made, it comes with a second DVD with the best profiles and footage from Masters of Delusions, Hashassins as well as AVM, a new Puerto Rico spot check and plenty of Bonus footage. The twin pack offers approximately 4 hours of footage in all.

But what really appealed to the judges about this film and helped it stand out from the many other Freesports films being considered was the way that an interview with Photographer Jeremy Stephenson was used to give structure and form to the film.” (Tylersail)
