There’s beauty in the unusual during spring lockdown… and there’s skateboarding.

“I wanted to make a simple and positive video that would cheer people up during the lockdown. I downloaded the free video editing program OpenShot to edit it. While learning how to use the program, I put a random video in the timeline to play around with. I happened to click on an effect which turned the picture negative and that’s how I got the idea for LOCK DOWN. For speed and simplicity, I worked with four home videos already in my little point-and-shoot camera. I really had fun making this and if it can bring a smile during these strange times, that’s very cool.” – Keith Lock
