Video Review: Culture Pattern by Ryan Lodzinski

Culture Pattern by Ryan Lodzinski is a local video featuring some of Central Florida’s up and coming talent. Featuring Tyler Lodzinski, Dan Miles, Dustin Drakesmith, Alex Szlabonyi, Dakota Berube, Corban Wartenberg, Koal Maddalena, Kyle Fansher, Beau Haines, and Drew Fall.

The premiere took place at Stardust Video & Coffee in Winter Park, FL. Stardust is a sick local gem in the heart of Winter Park. They serve coffee, beers, tea, and small snacks. Most importantly they open up their establishment to rad venues and video premieres that bring people together. This one so happened to be for the long-awaited, 2 years in the making, “Culture Pattern”.

It was a full house, people shoulder to shoulder, a long line at the bar, and a quaint Cafe full of anticipation. The lights lowered and the premiere was underway.

Starting with video teasers for District Skateboards and The LodSquad, cheers erupted to kick off the premiere. The Opener was filmer and brother of Ryan Lodzinski, Tyler Lodzinski. A Part full of power, style, and creative use of angles on the filmers end. It’s rad to see filmers get in on the action, not only can these guys film they both rip.

The video featured a solid soundtrack, great use of effects, and the skateboarding did not disappoint. Stand out Parts were Beau Haines, Dustin Drakesmith, Alex Szlabonyi, Drew Fall, and Kyle Fansher. Overall a great video, creative, attention-grabbing, and well received by the audience.

Peering around the room, all eyes were locked on screen, accompanied by the raising of Cell phones above the crowd to fill their feeds. The video wrapped and the place exploded. Highly recommend checking out the video, Culture Pattern can be purchased here.
