Chris Ray is a California-based filmmaker specializing in skateboarding films. Skateboarding films are a unique sector of the industry. I personal love watching them for their distinct shots and creative angles that are needed to capture the brazen performances of these athletes. Chris gives us his insight in on shooting skateboard films. In addition to how he got started in the film industry, which is quite interesting.
