Skateboard film

CSUMB students' skateboard film set to premiere

"No Excuses, Just Hungry," a skateboarding film by a pair of California State University, Monterey Bay students, will have its debut showing on Dec. 7 in Salinas.

Jared Nelson and Michael Oates-Kealey, students in the university's Department of Teledramatic Arts and Technology, shot most of the footage in Salinas, Monterey, Marina and Seaside.

The pair, both 21, worked on the film for three years. Capturing the fast-paced action was a real test of their filmmaking skills - some of the shots involved the filmmakers riding their own skateboards while holding the camera.

Although the film was not a class assignment, Nelson and Oates-Kealey said their CSUMB courses strengthened their filmmaking skills.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m., Dec. 7 at the Salinas Moose Lodge, 111 Monterey St. Admission is free.
