Videos like 'One Week in Paris' have changed the way skateboarding is being portrayed, which is pretty cool considering how the alternative to the usual thrashing vocals of a punk rock band works well.

In 'One Week in Paris,' John Tanner heads out to one of the most romantic cities in the world for a bit of skateboarding fun. Beautiful shots of the city reveal the Eiffel Tower, Gare du Nord train station and the beautiful architecture that's more than just picturesque. Of course, there's also the kick-flips and grinds that come along with this eloquently filmed video. If this is where skateboarding videos are heading towards in terms of style and cinematography, I'd say this is a great direction to go in building interest.
