On Friday, Greg Hunt launched his first photography book in NYC, via the young Paradigm Publishing, with one hell of a theme, a friend of twenty years or so: Jason Dill! The occasion was too good to pass, to not question him about his lesser known passion for images that are not moving…
You may not know what Matias Elichabehere's physical profile looks like, but you've definitely heard his music before in Minuit, Magenta, TransWorld or HY Skate Bag videos. Yet first and foremost, Matias is a skateboarder and now here he is, presenting us a mixtape of his footage collected over the years from Bordeaux by Yoan Taillandier to San Francisco with Zach Chamberlin - edited, you guessed it, to a brand new song by Matias! Excerpt from a previous portrait for LIVE by Olivier Fanchon: Eyes On!
In seven years of existence, Nikola Racan's Vladimir Film Festival has slowly but surely grown to become a remarkable institution as part of the European - not to say worldwide - skate scene, gathering hundreds of skateboarders from the whole world over in the small croatian village of Fažana every year. On location every year since (nearly) the beginning, Aymeric Nocus picked 2017 as the year to finally bring his video camera with him, as an effort to capture and share as much of that effervescence as possible, with precious VX-1000 assistance from George Toland and Rémi Luciani who documented the energy of the skate sessions. The final product is now premiereing on LIVE Skateboard Media, after physical premieres at the Mimpi Film Festival in Rio De Janeiro and the Roundabout Fest in Berlin... Worldwide connexions!
You've known young Hugo Corbin for a hot minute, now, notably through his "Cheers Paris" part, that was a PREMIERE on LIVE last year. And, he has not slowed down one bit since, wether it's on his Parisian suburbs usual spots, or during a recent Barcelona visit. Which allows him to present a new proposal fittingly equally funky and punchy! Mainly filmed by Romain Batard, and cut by Shqipron Bobaj, to a custom track by the good people of 4 Letters!
From his recent integration to Paccbet, a board brand located quite East of his native city of Lille, to a quasi super-activity of his Öctagon buddies and a solid take on street skating while never shying away from a little quirky take on it, we always have Val in our sights but for the good reasons. All his recent activity gives us the occasion of helping you find out a little more about this fine young man, via a new LIVE production, signed by Blake Myers, with a custom soundtrack done by Thom Pringle. The video drops with an "En Transit" zine that will be available in a selection of French skateshops. A project supported by Vans.
All right, it is Alex's turn to get the Victor Demonte, remix treatment of his Pop Trading Company footage, just like he did for Noah Bunink. Mister Raeymaekers has got the quick feet thing mastered, and puts it to great use, so you should dig it! Street skating as we would love to do, with a smile on his face at all times… Well, almost. Another LIVE exclusive!
If you've been skating in Paris, regularly or on a trip, you will not have missed Marc-Alexandre, or "Marc-A" as everybody calls him. He's on point, to say the least, and has been for a few years now, despite his young age, and it should not change anytime soon. One will note his personal approach of the spot, whatever it might be, and skills when it comes to flip his board, whenever he sees fit… Yup, we dig him, and this is why we decided to send Augustin his way to produce this part.
Fuck it, it is Easter, so this one is on us! Here is the Magenta part of the Parisii remix. Baby Jesus was dead and came back, or not really, but the only thing we know for sure is friends are forever!
