There’s an awesome story here about a mum and dad who built a backyard ice rink in the United States during the winter so that their two boys could have fun skating and playing hockey outdoors. But what I love most about this excellent quick-cut video is just hearing all those sounds come together. It’s enough to make a man maybe, MAYBE, miss winter.
Nah, screw that, this winter was cold as heck — let’s bring on spring. Hockey Sounds was filmed by Scott Duffy, who wrote:
Although I’m looking forward to spring/summer, I’ll be sad to see our backyard rink go. It’s been another great winter for outdoor skating and my two boys took full advantage. Despite getting his butt kicked by his older brother, my youngest son’s skating drastically improved over the last 3 months. No children were harmed during the filming of this video. Thanks to my wife Kelli for helping me shoot this past weekend and for putting up with my non-stop camera obsession. In this (quick cut style) video, either a person, object or thing is centered in every scene. Here’s a whole bunch of good ol’ Canadian hockey in under one minute.
