It's time again for another Sponsor Me Video Review! This month’s video is from Daniel Roberts. Daniel has a lot of footage, almost too much. When you make a sponsor me video, you need to remember that the Team Manager who will be watching it sees a ton of videos all the time. You want to make sure your part is short and sweet with only your best footage so it will stand out. Daniel’s video is just over four minutes, which is way too long. You should shoot for no more than two minutes.
I saw some good skating in Daniel’s video, but there was some stuff that could have been left out that would have made it more exciting. I know that sometimes you land a trick that you’re stoked on, but it may have been slow, sketchy or not up to par with what today’s ams would do on the same obstacle. Even though you like it, it may be good to leave it out.
Another thing to remember when editing your video is if you have multiple clips of the same trick at different spots, pick the best one, don’t use them all. I’m not trying to take away from Daniel’s skating, you can see that he rips. The long running time just wasn’t that exciting for me to watch. Thanks for sending in your footage, Daniel, you just snagged yourself a free pair of Emerica shoes! Keep those videos coming.--Jeff Henderson

  2. Hes good but i still dont understand, is he flow on emrica now?
    And i think he does kinda fit with emerica cause he did alot of rails and big stuff, where as doug des autels focused on ledges and tech stuff.

  15. If the review had said the video was too short, that's what you'd all be saying. These people aren't trying to win skater of the year, they just want some free shoes.

    arbmsk8er's Emeritar arbmsk8er Posted:
  32. You're a really talented skateboarder, and have a lot of tricks, and are better than me, but to be honest I think your style is horriable. The tricks in your lines don't go togeather at all. Thats just what I think, so don't get bummed on me; if anything take this as constructive criticism.

    NJskate's Emeritar NJskate Posted:
  33. I don't like how he skates...he's stiff and he has no speed...he sucks.

  35. lol, i sent this video in as a complete joke, most all the footage is from a year to 3 years ago. this is a tape my friend made for me to have so i could look back on in the future not a sponsor tape just kind of a lapse of skating. watching progression and style change is a crazy thing. I skateboard cause I love it, not for anything else. All a video shows are some things you've filmed. Never shows how consistence, nice you are or the difficulty of the spots. Shoot! Send a video, free kicks, why not. My advice is do what you love and nothing else, follow the path it leads, dont try being something you're not. I dont care how i skate, i'm having fun and that's all i care about. Life is short so have fun. Later.
    Live to skate, Skate to live.

  41. ok, well he's good, don't get me wrong, but see, there're alot who could do some his footage, I could do some of i and i suck compared to my other friends accept 1,but the bottom line is if he does bigger stuff he has a chance at making the team. If not " bye bye chance!"

    TheBoss92's Emeritar TheBoss92 Posted:

    livefreeordie's Emeritar livefreeordie Posted:
  53. he was sick but his vid was way too long, so i got bored halfway through.

    ReynoldsRocksMySockS's Emeritar ReynoldsRocksMySockS Posted:
  54. maybe the footage was too long. but maybe you all can't realize what good skating is. i want to see every hater send in something better..please, justify yourselves. also, has anyone been to any of these spots and realized how sketchy they are? these arnt just a few tricks, daniel roberts is a consistent skating machine. most of that footage was almost three years old, so instead of hating so hard throw down some useful criticism.

    FeelThis's Emeritar FeelThis Posted:
  55. it was good, the ledges were a little too low, and some tricks were pretty scetchy, though

    emericanskater19's Emeritar emericanskater19 Posted:
  56. He had some alright stuff, nothing worth mentioning to anyone. I think he has a really bad style and is a very very boring skateboarder to watch.

  57. krks's Emeritar krks Posted:
  58. First of all, Daniel, I admire your attitude toward skating. Believe it or not, there are people who think the same way about it all. For all you blokes who call him a pussy and whatnot, remember that not everyone is out to be a pro skater, some people just skate because they really enjoy it. Also, you're judging him too harshly. He's not a pro, he's just a random skater with maybe a small bag of sponsors at best trying to win a pair of shoes. Yeah, a little long, a little stiff. Whatever. I loved it.

    krks's Emeritar krks Posted:
  59. i like the long footage if it keeps you intrested

  60. i like the long footage if it keeps you intrested

    iskateswitch's Emeritar iskateswitch Posted:
  61. This guy is okay. He skates handrails almost every trick. That gets extremely boring, very fast. He's got a nice seleciton of tricks, he just doesn't know what to do them on/off of. I think that he skates too slow for me. Emerica is a team of riders that all skate fairly fast paced. This man doesn't deserve to be on Emerica.

    Brian's Emeritar Brian Posted:
  62. maybe good.maybe bad. but he got a free pair of shoes

    holyshitt's Emeritar holyshitt Posted:
  63. Free shoes, not yet. Havent received or heard anything from emerica yet.

    attn: c00ler , hit me up and let me know the deal on the shoes, i'd appreciate it. later.

    danrob748's Emeritar danrob748 Posted:
  64. that wuz good but i think you could go a little bit faster and do more tre's. but ur grinds look really great.

    xEmericaBakerx's Emeritar xEmericaBakerx Posted:
  65. theres a kid like you that lives in my town who is just as cocky as you in your comment or whatever and trust me no one likes him i bet no one likes you!

    divisionstreet's Emeritar divisionstreet Posted:
  66. Daniel gaped to noseblunted over this pyramid at this one contest i was in last night. Half the kids commenting on this thing are like 11, and 12. So half you kids don't know what your talking about. Daniel is really nice and he freakin rips. that's coming from somebody that has been on tour and has seen skateboarding from the other side. Daniel is not cocky at all. He is a very humble dude. half you kids should seriously stop skating from the negetivity you put into skateboarding. In fact, there shouldn't be anything negitive about skateboarding. It's a peice of wood with wheels, and you have fun on it.

    josiah's Emeritar josiah Posted:
  67. totally agreed, "josiah"

    krks's Emeritar krks Posted:
  68. the begining of his part was so good but it started to get worse near the end it was still good thoe

    macskate1's Emeritar macskate1 Posted:
  69. dan leave only ur best stuff out, and nothing sketchy. and add more tech, and flips tricks down stuff. dont do the same trick twice, you hear? ur long 50 reminded me of mike taylors. you rip keep it up. oh and for salad grinds always make ur filmer shoot it from underneath, otherwise it always loks like shit. i think you deserve ZERO flow. defs bro.

    StayBold's Emeritar StayBold Posted:
  70. this dude is sooo underrated, i mean he isn't like insane or anything, but I'll be damned if "he sucks" hell, a backlip down a handrail ain't nuttin to fuck with, and the durham courthouse line (the two benches and the handrail at the end) blew my mind,keep on keeping on.
