San Diego, California
All right! This month, we have a Sponsor Me video coming out of San Diego, California from Drew Potter. Filmed and edited by Jon Coulthard, Drew’s video stands out from a lot of the other Sponsor Me videos that I’ve seen because, first and foremost, his skating is awesome. He rides everything, which is always a plus. From gnarly transitions at Washington Street to big handrails, this video has a good variety of skating. Drew also has a really clean and solid style that I was stoked on. Style is really important when it comes to choosing someone to sponsor. Just because you land every trick in the book doesn’t mean you should be sponsored. How you do a trick is just as important as what trick you are doing. Drew’s video also stands out because it was all shot in black and white. I like black and white footage, there’s just something about it that looks cool. Drew kept his video short and sweet. He used good discretion when choosing what to use. I didn’t see any tricks in there that should have been left out. Overall, Drew’s video is a good example of what a Sponsor Me video should look like. Keep it up, Drew, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from you in the future! —Jeff Henderson
