Skating with Ryan Sheckler in New York City
By Lynn Hoppes
GoPro athlete Ryan Sheckler on Monday released a short film called "New York City" using a Wi-Fi remote and 50 new GoPro cameras.
Sheckler's film shows skating throughout New York, including the Manhattan Bridge, Chinatown and the Lower East Side skatepark. He's joined by Erik Bragg, who is a director of photography.
"This is something I've always wanted to do -- to skate through a part of New York City that thousands of people ride through every week, feeling the energy of one of the original stomping grounds of street skating," Sheckler said. "I'm already thinking of my next project and hopefully this inspires other people to realize and document their own creative ideas."
