When I was in high school, I took a class on video editing. For one of my assignments I took out one of the cameras with the intention of making a skateboard video, but instead left the camera in the car and just went skating. When it came time to edit the footage and make my video, the only real footage I had was of me and my friends setting off fireworks, which was pretty much unusable. After sitting in the editing room pretending to work for a couple of classes, I started to panic and came up with the amazing idea to take the slam section of this video, put it to Ice Cube’s “Wicked” and submit it as my own creation. Luckily my teacher had no clue about skateboarding and I squeaked by with a C, which is odd because the original cut was pretty high tech at those times. Anyway, that story has nothing to do with this ground breaking Sean Sheffy part, but I think it may have taught some of our younger readers a valuable lesson.
