Alien Workshop
1997, 21 minutes
Current Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Timecode set the tone for future Alien Workshop works, utilizing some street oriented talent in a variety of spots, most notably (you guessed it!) Love Park. It also acts as a precursor to later projects, in that the "art" between skaters is almost as long as their actual parts, and involves almost completely random shots. Furthermore, the music is also very similar to other videos, meaning you'll swivel your hips to nothing more than some stock rap.

There is nothing I could point out about this video that is particularly bad. The music is ok, and, if you can stand it in a skate video, the art is pretty cool. However, it is exactly the same as Photosynthesis, if you account for the higher-order tricks in that video, due to its later production date. Consequently, you should just buy Photosynthesis if you’re interested in seeing the exact same skaters ride with a little more style. Also better about the team's later videos is the presence of Kerry Getz, whose excellence is missing from Timecode.
