Magenta "Balade" / Meeting... Vivien Feil!

Finally on your screens, for you to watch no sooner than right now, right here: the new Magenta full-length, "Balade", prominently filmed in the United States of America but not exclusively. The resulting mix is a twenty-minute long upbeat edit - perfect to watch before skating - that was put together pretty spontaneously, actually. You know how LIVE works by now: the opportunity was too great not to try and ask the busy Vivien Feil (one of the founding fathers of the brand, besides offspring duties of a more organic type) what's up and surprise, he did manage to find the time to come through with answers aplenty for you to absorb alongside the video, making for a solid package we are stoked to present you today!

PREMIERE / Vladimir 2018 / George Toland / INTERVIEW

Them lads never quit it! Over the past month the Internet has graced us with "Teddie", London head George Toland's R.A.D. new full-length video compiling one year worth of skateboarding by his crew filmed in many different locations throughout Europe; and last week, we were presenting you this interview and photo gallery of George Booth-Cole, the photographer of the posse and a talented one at that, who happens to document many of his mates' prowess on thirty-five millimeter film when the other George aims at the same in moving form via his trusted VX-1000. Both homonymous G's are no strangers to the most important skate video festival in Europe, the now longtime running Vladimir Film Festival occuring every September in Croatia (the 2017 documentary on which George was down to help out with already, contributing chunks of skate footage); and actually here they are today, showcasing a recap of some of the intense street skating that took place in between the exhibitions and screenings at the latest, 2018 edition of Vladimir, all filmed in the city of Pula, Croatia over the course of four days. The two played their respective roles as documentarists so well, we just had to catch up with the one who favors colors and tapes (click here for an interview with the other George), if anything just come up with enough banter to illustrate and punctuate with their souvenirs of stoke, sunshine and miscellaneous, sound shenanigans!

Parisian life!

The City of Lights as seen through the prism of Calvin Millar's refined VX-1000 and Super 8 touch - look no further, "La Vie En Paris" is what you get; an entirely logical [sic] as this moving postcard results from the leisurely holiday trip of a tight-knit crew of visitors from Texas. The edit makes for a poetic intepretation of the streets of the French capital, and Kyle Slinky will make your head spin just as much as the sightseeing!

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!

Aymeric Nocus "The Law of Creativity" / PREMIERE

All right, let's get this week started on the right foot, and not any foot either, but the one our very own Aymeric is never afraid to plant on one of the many step-hop variations he is known for… Almost entirely filmed in his home, the skateboarding Mecca of Blois. Proof, once again that pleasure is where you go get it!

Parking Fashion Week

Where the Pop Trading Company boys manage to bring back a full edit from a week in Paris marked by heavy and endless rain… We've told you before they were more or less weatherproof, and also actually enjoying each other company even if locked up for days in the grimiest parking garages in town. In between Parisian parties! Also note that our very own Aymeric got a line, here!

Yoan Taillandier / 5 W's!

As to better accompany his new Bordeaux montage, here's another dimension of Yoan's perspective on all things MINUIT, through the prism of our classic treatment-by-the-5 W's!

Meeting... Medium Skate Mag!

Just as certain popular insecurities regarding the future of print media happen to be the hottest topic, some people such as Will Jivcoff (former Kingshit managing editor) and Love Skateboards' Joel Watamaniuk instead choose to leap head first into enterprises such Medium Skate Mag, the second issue of which they're launching just now, alongside this accompanying edit of their recent parisian adventures.

Giddy-oh!

Always a laugh, always different faces… Skating captured between Paris, Rennes, New York City and Barcelona that will make you ring your homies!

Parisii / le remix / Magenta homies

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!

Bonus time!

Here to a great start of the week, with a little tour of cities that always make you daydream, with quite the selection of locals, each time, thanks to Bordeaux Exposure and the always motivated Julien Januszkiewicz! From Jordan Queijo to Gauthier Rouger, perfect!

"Tood"

If you would ever happen to doubt what skateboarding "has become", please type in "RIOS crew" on your analog or tactile keyboard, and set yourself straight once and for all… Because, in about two years, those guys from a forgotten by all capital have managed to create something. Something that is their own, with no sponsors, no marketing plan, no nothing apart from a video camera and good ideas, one being that they are not allowed to film twice on the same spot… Their very own thing is great enough that it is now making skaters from around the world travel to check it out, and considering the kind of guys visiting them, this thing is the good kind… Nope, not all is lost. Thanks to the RIOS!
