MIMPI FILM FESTIVAL / "Ruído" / PREMIERE

Despite the ongoing exponential development of instantaneous Internet connections, social network platforms and low-cost airlines - technologies bound to help the average skateboarder meet some others as to contemplate new perspectives, new landscapes, new souls - certain particular horizons still seem to struggle more than others in terms of retranscription. Oftentimes the idea erupts, but gets stranded on the way, exhausted from the length of the journey, eventually hitting the language barrier face first. Not everybody has to be an English speaker, a media nerd or even aiming at reaching out to others, after all; nevertheless, those ruptures in communication will get in the way of those trying to comprehend as much of the world as possible, like crackling on the line. Today on LIVE Skateboard Media, it is Pedro Damasio you are getting introduced to, along with his peers' work on the Rio De Janeiro, Brazil-based skate film and photo festival: Mimpi. We went there - twice - and we loved it: beyond all appearances and behind the banners, Pedro and his friends like to play around with crazy concepts. Last year's edition's was the one of noise, or "Ruído", and the resulting clip, featured above, is pretty experimental; a daring stand from an event this popular, only proving the sincerity in Pedro's progressive will, and the love in his approach. Plus there's a lot of skateboarding to boot, as a tribute to the practice we all owe everything to!

"MAGNUS" / Valencia

Zander Taketomo's photographic novel recounting Norwegian Magnus Bordewick's pilgrimage around the world alongside Chris Mulhern to film for his new, eponymous web part for Adidas is coming to an end... And it's onto the shores of Valencia that their flow ends up sweeping us, after a full week of daily havoc bouncing from Philadelphia to Taipei, then to Mallorca, Tokyo, then Seoul. Spain's third biggest city wasn't without inspiring our trio, skateboarding- and photography-wise: the proof being in the crazy amount of material their got just from that one trip! A feat also helped by the presence of Hermann Stene... Make sure to treat yourself with the clip, "Magnus", and please do stay in touch for new adventures!

"MAGNUS" / Seoul

Welcome to yet another chapter in Zander Taketomo's photo book comprising still images of Magnus Bordewick in motion around the world whilst filming for the eponymous "Magnus": his latest web part (that just came out!) for Adidas, filmed and edited by Chris Mulhern. Today is Sunday: let's give our senses some rest with a smaller selection of photos than what you might have got used to already. We're still going to Seoul, though; just for a very short stint, as the main purpose of the trip was to skate demos... Although of course, that didn't stop Magnus from being productive in the streets, as the very last photo in the present gallery (and his performances in the edit itself) can attest!

"MAGNUS" / Tokyo

Fourth installment in the series of Zander Taketomo's photo galleries pertaining to Magnus Bordewick's filming trips all across the world in the company of Chris Mulhern and his trustworthy video camera happens to be devoted to, literally, the Eastern Capital: Tokyo Metropolis. For more still glimpses of exotic destinations, the ground of which was covered by the effervescent trio, make sure to check the past three photo galleries; stay tuned for even more, and in the meantime, do yourself a favor by going back to yesterday's update to watch the resulting video piece for Adidas, appropriately entitled "Magnus"!

"MAGNUS" / Mallorca

Third episode in the "Magnus" series recounting the adventures of the eponymous Norwegian, Herr Bordewick, around the world on a mission to film for Chris Mulhern's new project, for Adidas... Today, it is to Mallorca that the pair is taking not just us, but also - and again, and again! - the restless photographer, Zander Taketomo. Now, the concrete urban landscapes are scaling away for just long enough to reveal a quieter scenery of beach fronts, classic Mediterranean back alleys and, more generally, poetry tuned to a different frequency... For now, that is!

"MAGNUS" / Taipei

Next stop: Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, for a Magnus Bordewick still under the sharp scrutinity of Chris Mulhern's and Zander Taketomo's lenses, on video and photo duties respectively. Recently, LIVE Skateboard Media was recounting their latest Philly adventures to you, with great help from Zander's impeccable photography and some words from Herr Bordewick; now, let's focus on the next chapter of the story...

"MAGNUS" / Philadelphia

Magnus Bordewick, you very certainly remember his name from the killer independent video from Norway, "Firetre", or maybe from the more recent "Tigerstaden"... Well, as of late, he's been hanging out with Chris Mulhern, closely enough for them to craft a video part together for Adidas, a magnum opus of sorts entitled "Magnus", just about to drop online. LIVE Skateboard Media's got you prepared for the imminent impact, by the means of Zander Taketomo's impeccable photography.

Gordon Beach Boys / GALERIE

On Monday, we will present you the newest edit by Romain Batard, following part of the Vans French team (Joseph Biais, Valentin Bauer, Quentin Boillon and Mickaël Germond) – plus their Canadian homie, Johnny Purcell–and their adventures in Isreal. So, you know you are in for the good stuff on spots you are not yet bored of! In order to get you in the mood, Loïc Benoit propose you, here, a selection of his best photos from their trip in the sun…

"Dunja" / Rios Crew x Belgrade Zoo / PREMIERE

It's not just that the Budapest-based Rios Crew no longer needs an introduction, but also that they may not want any. They made another video featuring them alongside the Belgrade Zoo gang in Montenegro then zoning around Croatia with some old acquaintance, called "Dunja" (see below!), regardless of the mere existence of such considerations.

DIY DIG / La Cave / GALERIE

Let's put you in the mood for the second episode of our DIY DIG series, starring the soon to be famous Jo Dezecot's cave, by presenting you a GALERIE of photos both documenting (in black and white) the building by Nicolas Boutin, and the very first group session (in color) by Vincent Coupeau. Because, when it comes to doing it yourself, it is as much about the skating than it is about the common effort that takes you there…

Thanks again to Vans for their kind support, on this project.

The Warriors & Colour Group in Japan / Galerie

We will present, as a PREMIERE, tomorrow the result of a trip to Japan by two Swiss crews together… Photographer and initiater of the whole thing, Alan Maag, tells and shows more, in the meantime…
