B-boys, B-girls, graffiti artists , Skateboarders and hip hop fans alike came together
On Saturday, November 4, 2023, the Liberty State Park Railroad Station in Jersey City, New Jersey, was transformed into a vibrant hub of hip hop & skateboarding culture for the OFF THE HOOK JAM event. Presented by @mr_mustart and @LEVITATE_CREATIVE_SERVICES, the event featured live graffiti art, breaking battles, a skateboarding competition with live music and performances throughout the evening. My experience was captured by me with my iPhone 7. However with all due respect I did not capture any footage of the skateboarding because I was influenced by the dance circles and graffiti art. A big shout out goes to one of our
Bboy Bgirl Lifestyle Newest Participant who entered their first ever breaking competition / battle.
I was drawn to the OFF THE HOOK JAM not only of its focus on showcasing the diverse and vibrant hip hop lifestyle more over because our dance group, NBK Natural Born Killahz of Jersey City was being awarded with the Crew Legacy Award from CUDA Culture, a 501c3 non profit organization based in Jersey City, NJ. From the Boys and Bgirls spinning and flipping on the floor to the graffiti artists creating masterpieces on the walls, there was something for everyone to enjoy. I was also impressed by the positive energy and sense of community that permeated the event.
To capture the essence of the OFF THE HOOK JAM, I used my iPhone 7's videography capabilities to create a brief 60-second video that highlights some of the event's highlights. I focused on capturing the energy and excitement of the breakdancing battles, the creativity of the graffiti artists, and the overall vibe of the event.
In post-production, I used creative editing techniques to enhance the video and tell a story about the OFF THE HOOK JAM. I used slow motion and close-ups to highlight the dancers' skills, and I used color grading and transitions to create a visually appealing and engaging video.
Here are some of the specific techniques that I used to capture the hip hop lifestyle at OFF THE HOOK JAM with my iPhone 7 videography and creative editing:
* **Use of slow motion:** Slow motion is a great way to highlight the athleticism and skill of the dancers. I used slow motion to capture some footwork from the our BBGL new student's' battle, as well as to display some of the action of some of the Graff writers.
