This is a video of pro skater Aaron “jaws” Homoki,  trying to perform an ollie on a 25 stair set. An ollie is a jump performed without the aid of a take-off ramp, executed by pressing the foot down on the tail of the board to rebound the deck off.

The video is filmed with a long lens and not in the normal fish eye that is so common in skateboarding. There are clips from his past attempts at the start and footage of him and the skate and film crew in other places. This gives the video a documentary feel.

There are several different cameras and angles for when he is trying the trick and for when he is just talking about it. There are even interviews with other members of the crew on what they think about him trying the trick and what they say about how it is going. All together there were 5 people filming, from different angles. In the end he lands the jump.
