Synopsis: A rag tag group of skaters is lead by local Loaded Ambassador and community chieftain Ari Chamasmany. From his downtown loft, a mixture of music and skateboards manifest themselves in a symbiotic relationship that for the past five years has cultivated a strong following of those who come to listen, and those who come to skate. Every Wednesday night the group skate the forsaken streets of Downtown LA. Under the mask of shadows, they hide and wait for the opportunity to strike the coveted parking structures that litter the inner city.

Director's Statement

The main idea was to show what happens in a Gel Lab session. At first, I was a little bit of a stranger, because the skate-music-art lifestyle of Ari Chamasmany is not typical in the Canary Islands. I wanted to show a very focused perspective of the longboard scene in Los Angeles. We had a great time filming that video because I also love to skate. Connecting with these people was much easier and a much deeper connection than usual shoots, because skating a parking garage with 20 people after the midnight is a special kind of experience
The fact that The Gel Lab has been running for 8 years stands as a testament to the diligence and persistence that embody Ari Chamasmany's work.
