Lux Veritas

"LUX VERITAS" is a three-minute VX edit that was assembled by Sami Lababedi, and recently shown at the latest Parisian Roundabout to date - that is, Sergej Vutuc's itinerant, independent skate film festival, that one time as part of PSSFF. About the clip, Sami speaks the truth:

"Well in the first place, those clips were something nobody was doing anything with - they had been just sitting there for a while, on this or that filmer's hard drives.

I thought that was a bit of a shame, and so I suggested to get them and put them all together into one edit of my friends, filmed throughout Paris, Brussels and the South of France." - Sami Lababedi

Ba-Singha!

Quentin Delebecque - aka. Mr. Singha on the Instagrams and YouTubes - just dropped a smash hit with "LES ZINVAHISSEURS", just short of ten minutes of Parisian VX-1000 brimming with brillance, but also humor. The roster is as colorful as it gets, with plenty of unique profiles you wouldn't expect to ever share a timeline yet just so happen to do it so well; it notably comprises Elson Patrick and Auguste Fenez (the same duo behind "JARDIN D'HIVER"), Tyrone O'Hanrahan does not seem to mind Léo Spartacus' or Paul Gallelli's company whatsoever, and Masaki Ui goes in with what's got to be the crooked bonk of the year - complete with crazy outraged pedestrians.

LIVE can only encourage you - again - to look into Quentin's YouTube channel as it's chockful of quality productions, including this great edit of Lille O.G.: Olivier "Tavu" Ente (as of today, strong of a grand total of fifty views; make sure to also check out Tavu's Instagram feed), or "CUSTOM", Quentin's former video - which we somehow managed to miss sharing around the time of its release last winter, but to this day remains well worth your time.

Honest bouffe

Passionate filmer still infatuated with the VX-1000 from the suburbs of London James "D.J." Davidson (already the author of "Shmara" and "Lost") is back with one more hard-hitting edit - filmed over the span of a five-day trip to Paris - and, per usual, many a story to tell. This time, his problem on the trip had less to do with the absence of fresh socks than with the one of functional camera viewfinders; meaning that, deprived of any visual control over the settings and footage whilst filming, D.J. had to document everything blind, in addition to learning to function in a world temporarily devoid of visible menus. That technical hiccup in mind, the quality and colors he eventually managed to come up with are especially incredible, as all D.J. had to trust the whole time was his own practical knowledge of the camera; eventually dropping "Boof", an edit with, ironically, not one rough bit in sight.

His homie Dino Torres was aboard the party boat too, and also documented the trip in a completely different style, all in H.D. and in the vein of the style William Strobeck has been popularizing over the past few years with the Supreme videos. His edit of the same week, entitled "Honest Work", can be peeped here; the opportunity to compare both approaches is rarely that accessible!
