Krzysztof Godek

Kraków Bulls (Byczki) / "If You Don't Skate, Don't Start" / Repeat / PREMIERE

In just the span of a few months, Polish skate filmmaker Krzysztof Godek really has become a LIVE regular; we've featured his works quite frequently and even introduced you to his new brand: Repeat. Well, after the recent presentation of one of the sections from the new Repeat video (starring quite the unique creative individual too, and not just on the board - but LIVE will cover that as well, soon...) via our peers over at Free Skate Mag, for today, here's a new one, led by the charge of the "Kraków Bulls".
 

Said animals are, in fact, the local young blood - including some names LIVE readers should be familiar with already, most notably via Kuba Kaczmarczyk's Grey Area videos (also definitely worth a peek for those still somehow oblivious to them despite their effervescence over the past decade).

Well, this all sounded too intriguing not to catch up with Krzysztof around the bend - once more - as to ask him a few questions and, hopefully, clarify everything you may be curious about!

To Rome with love

Poland-based skate filmmaker Krzysztof Godek is, as of recently, running his own brand Repeat and, more generally, somebody whose works have been placed on display on LIVE quite a few times before; and today, he's back with an edit filmed, this time, in Rome - quite the unpopular destination for a skate trip despite being the capital of Italy, as it seems commonly overshadowed by the much more practical Milanese marble. Well, the task to restore a certain balance is up to Varsaw's SH Store riders in this case, and the results are now live for you to watch, for a little audiovisual holiday!

As a complement, here are some words straight from Krzysztof, and a photo gallery by Jakub Suwiński.

Polish advice

We've brought up the video before, in our recent report of this year's Vladimir Film Festival (which just about ended), and it's hard to forget such a statement of a title: "If You Don't Skate, Don't Start" is Polish skate filmmaker Krzysztof Godek's imminent full-length video - do yourself a favor and get familiar with his former productions, including the tasty "Lunch". Well, only a few days after that first premiere, it is now time for the trailer to drop online, just to make you foam at the mouth a little, all the while wishing you had made it to Croatia to see it already.

Krzysztof is also starting his new brand, called Repeat (in no way related to Tibor Rep, the Vladimir cook).

VLADIMIR FILM FESTIVAL 2019 / REPORT

Vladimir - for the obscure.

The black sheep has only been developing exponentially over its now nine years of existence, and so has been the attention it's received with, this year, an approximation of three hundred people showing up from the whole planet over to attend this local festival in Fažana, Croatia - a little Istrian port town with a loaded history, testimonies of which still stand under the form of monuments everywhere (currently ensuring a steady flow of tourism), and the sensibilities of the inhabitants.

What originally started out as a very local initiative consisting in video screenings at the local skatepark quickly outgrew that embryonic phase as its instigators, Nikola Racan (of 'Solsticij' full-length video underground fame) and the Skateboard klub August Šenoa locals grew to use modern communication tools to get further and further in touch with universally renowned skate artists and documentarists - whether in the photo or video field.

DC meets Sofia

Let's propel off yesterday's post (the full-length video "Lunch") onto another new production by the same author. This time, it is to Sofia, Bulgaria that Krzysztof Godek brings us to, on a trip there with the Polish DC Shoes team. The crew concentrated their effort around one area: the National Palace of Culture, brimming with spots and so many possibilities it's going to be a tough one to hold against them!

Bon appétit!

Make sure you're ready to eat now as "Lunch" is Krzysztof Godek's new audiovisual buffet; the Polish filmmaker indeed just dropped "Lunch", a full-length video he spent the last six years filming all around Europe, from his home to Spain but also France, the U.K. and Norway, to list a few destinations. It's all HD and brimming with over a hundred (!) unique styles whose owners are so numerous, their names are impossible to enumerate and our uninitiated, very Western European understanding of the concept of vowels certainly doesn't help - but they're all in the video description and, to drop a few internationally popular names, get ready for some remarkable performances by Magnus BordewickMichal Juras and Luka Pinto. Better served boiling hot!
