A California Filmmaker Captures an Eerily Quiet City Via His Skateboard

The quiet streets of San Francisco

Based in Southern California, filmmaker and skateboarder Perry Gershkow made the journey up north to shoot San Francisco while it sheltered in place.

“As Covid-19 clears the streets of San Francisco, we find solitude amongst the concrete jungle,” says Perry. “This film documents the emptiness throughout San Francisco during Covid-19, using skateboarding as the catalyst.”

Shot both from above and on the ground, the short film documents a typically bustling city reduced to silence, with the occasional sound of wheels churning on pavement.
