SF Skate Club Presents: "Cultural Perspective" by Michael Cheatum and Ricardo Rios
SFSC and Steve Ruge aka Shrewgy (active in the business of skateboarding for 30 years) hosted a unique short format film festival on April 9th at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco. We teamed 4 established film makers that came from skateboarding roots with 4 of our current program standouts in the creative visuals portion of SF Skate Club. The 4 separate teams showcased a 2-6 minute effort to raise funds for SFSC's after school program "Eduskate". Michael Cheatum is a 21 year old San Francisco born & raised filmmaker. This is his first live film premiere, and what better way to make his debut than as a mentor in this project for a younger youth from SF Skate Club. He started cinematography about three years ago. Since then, he’s gotten two films published on Thrasher Magazine, felt the pleasure of sharing his views, lifestyle, perspective & art. Now, he has the added honor of being an older role model.
