Brian Powderly

Hot line(s)

We were already bringing up Josh Stewart earlier today, as the independent filmmaker from Florida was recently invited to the Croatian Vladimir Film Festival, for its 2019 iteration which actually just came to an end and LIVE already has covered, here (quite the must-see for any respectable fan of the "STATIC" video series).

Well, now the unstoppable work pace of the man is made obvious again as, in between trips and exhibitions, he just happens to be the author of this new montage for Dial Tone (the wheel brand for those who miss the original telephones). If you aren't familiar, then just look at that line-up: you're in for new, excellent footage of - amongst others - Jahmal Williams, Ben Gore, Kevin Liedtke, Alexis Sablone, Christian Maalouf, Brian Powderly and Jordan Trahan; and it all rolls beautifully, as though captured on everyone's oh-so-impertinent daily routine.

The animations are by Cosme Studio.

Still cold?

Static State

Ben Gore recently demonstrated that he was as skilled behind a video camera as he is behind a photographic lens; now here he is again, eager to remind us all of how much he's also the boss on the other side of the lens! The proof is in the footage, in this clip in which he shares the timeline with Christian Maalouf, Kevin Coakley, Brian Powerdly and Jon N'Guyen, celebrating the release of a new collaboration line between State Footwear and Theories, Josh Stewart's labor of love. Actually, it's also Josh who's responsible for the VX and editing here, being again as proficient as he is prolific and guess what: nobody's going to complain about that!

No pun intended

"HI8US" is the new video confession from S.F. hills' very own Papa Smurf: Ben Gore, pro chez Magenta, world renowned for his power and flick just as much as for his sharp eye, whether behind some kind of photographic lens or not. "A video about a tripod", or so he claims; a deceptively humble description as the edit is stuffed to the brim with genius skateboarding (and the occasional stunt) authored by Brian Delatorre, Ryan Barlow, Roger Krebs, Chris Athans, Trevor Thompson, Brian Powderly, Ben himself and then a handful of more, even. All in the name of his project: Three Press, and conveying some serious Dan Wolfe vibes, but transposed to the current S.F. scene.

S.F. State!

The Internets and the current weather in France are currently on the same boat, fashion-wise: it's raining gems of clips bound to make you want to skate! And this one strikes like sunshine: State (the skater-owned shoe company on the rise) just dropped a shared montage featuring Northern Co.'s youngest Chris Athans and Brian Powderly zooming through and past the streets of a boiling, abrasive S.F. landscape of dreams as captured by one of the best to ever do it: Zach Chamberlin. Ben Gore even steals the show with an improbable guest trick!

Patsy

A little who's who of the Theories camp, where personal favorite Brett Weinstein holds it down the way he knows how!

Allo!?

A new wheels company? Sure, why not…  With that line-up, well, hell, yeah, count us in! That first edit got it all right, so it's looking good for Dial Tone!

Politicians

Exactly what you would need, just before the week-end: some raw "real" street skating on the shitty sidewalks of New Jersey, and beyond! What you say? You say "Thanks, Politic!"… They sure know about it all!

Supervisual

Now, this should be your Sunday evening classic for a bit! Hell, why even Sunday only? This ode to skate videos of all times and eras, full of subliminal educational messages should keep you busy for a few hours, actually… This is a little treasure in disguise. Then again, a video starting with a Dom Henry trick can only be  a feel good movie, right?

Poor pairing…

Now, BEWARE, turn the sound right off, right now! There have rarely been a worst soundtrack picked up to be sitting with someone's skating… To the point where about any song on your phone randomly playing now on your phone will do a better job. Or, you could try that one, it actually works… Apart from that detail, young Brian Powderly is all lightness, despite what might be the worstest spots you have seen in a while. Beautiful stuff!

Do not miss this, everything here is top-notch, from the skating to spots, and including the whole look and feel of it!
