Memory Screen, Alien Workshop's video debut, gives you a look at the team’s first crop of skaters back in the early 90’s. As far as videography goes, this is definitely a groundbreaking video. Memory Screen introduced many filming elements to the skateboarding world that are almost taken for granted nowadays, such as the use of multiple film/camera/lens types, dozens of editing effects, and most notably, choreographed video parts. It also raised the bar a notch for solid, smooth, skating footage in videos. Unfortunately this was all but forgotten by late 1992, but that's another story. Besides some very odd non-skating montage sections, the footage is mostly street with a little bit of vert courtesy of Thomas Morgan.
