Kevin Dowling and Jamie Olmstead have premiered their project titled, Footage Tape, which is an online high definition web series that has set the standards for any piece of online media dedicated to rollerblading. Not only does Footage Tape provide great footage of some of rollerblading’s top pros doing the sickest tricks with multiple angles but it covers each section as a news report which is refreshing to see. This first episode is approximately 31 minutes long and is better than most videos that are out now. Footage Tape provides great coverage on the Panhandle Pow Wow and the Boots, Burgers, and Hammers competition as well as scene reports on Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, and New York City.
The NYC report rounds off the video. Saving the best for last? I think so. Kevin opens up the NYC section showing his love for our scene, and the I Roll NY site (I love you Kevin!) as well as dedicating the opening footage to our lost friend Brian “Cozmik” Scott which I’m truly grateful for. The NYC footage goes on to cover one of our many Lets Roll NY sessions, our Last Man Standing competition, and various pros skating our city. Thank you to Kevin and Jamie for not only representing our local scene amazingly, but rollerblading in general amazingly. Please show your support, just how Kevin has, and visit the Footage Tape website. “FootageTape is the first ever HD online rollerblading web series created by Kevin Dowling and Jamie Olmstead.
